Deadly Diamonds carries forward the adventures (and misadventures) of Massoud Anssari, formerly dean and now professor at a midwestern law school that attracts trouble like a magnet attracts iron filings. The registrar dies under mysterious circumstances; a stupendously rich foreign benefactor withdraws his promise to the school of several million dollars; and Ansari, attempting to rectify the problem, is drawn into major skullduggery at a remote diamond mine in a semi-arid region of West Africa. One heinous crime tops another. Finally, with the aid of revelations from Ansari, the enormously obese wife of the benefactor helps, in her own uniquely bumbling way, to reveal the culprit and the secretive theft of diamonds. Ansari returns to America, discovers who (or what) killed the registrar, and a sense of peace, albeit temporary, returns to the law school... A well-crafted, descriptively written and fast-paced story of theft, intrigue and murder, interwoven throughout with humour, Deadly Diamonds will appeal to fans of John Wilson's former books, Badger, Boomer and Bathroom Bob and Death by Duck, and Richard Wilson's former books, American Redemption and The Hardtack Diary, and is a must-read for fans of The Pink Panther, crime and suspense fiction.
