Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Diamond Hunters Once again Wilbur Smith captivates the reader with intruige, action and intense emotion! This book will draw the reader in and not relinquish its grip until you have turned the last page. Diamond Hunters is a fascinating look at the African diamond industry, with the seedier side of espionage and ruthless deals exposed to the reader. Another page turner from Smith and a profusely intense novel!
