Detective Superintendent George Quinn -- Mayfair resident and dandy with a razor-sharp brain -- has set up a new police unit, dedicated to investigating the super-rich. When he is shot in mysterious circumstances, DI Blake Reynolds is charged with taking over. But Reynolds hadn't bargained for Quinn's personal assistant -- the flinty Victoria Clifford -- who knows more than she's prepared to reveal...
The trail left by Quinn leads to a jewellery theft, a murderous conspiracy among some of the most glamorous (and richest) Russians in London - and the beautiful Anna, who challenges Reynolds' professional integrity. Reynolds and Clifford must learn to work together fast -- or risk Quinn's fate.
Set in the heart of twenty-first-century Mayfair, a world of champagne, Lamborghinis and Savile Row suits, The Yellow Diamond
is a brilliant new venture from one of our best loved crime authors -- meticulously plotted, wonderfully humane and hugely enjoyable.
