Thriller depicts the inner workings of the "blood diamond" trade through the eyes of a fisherman, smuggler, and business associate.

ABSTRACT
Sierra Leone, 1999: The controversial "blood diamond" trade dominates this impoverished West African nation, inspiring conflicts between rebel forces and helpless locals across the war-torn countryside. Caught up in the seemingly endless conflict is native fisherman Solomon Vandy, a man whose discovery of an enormous pink diamond in a riverbank one day places him into the thick of a war of his own involving his warlord boss, Rhodesian gunrunner Danny Archer, and unsavory mining executives from around the African continent.
