A body so toxic nobody can go near it

An unusual murder leads Emil to an elusive diamond that is just as deadly. A valuable gem for sure, but why the over-the-top interest? Laura’s insatiable appetite for knowledge reveals a clue. Turns out the diamond has a history shrouded in nothing but death – a legend telling of untold power to whoever possesses it.

The truth might be more down to earth but no less frightening. From the depths of Argentina’s criminal underworld to the highest echelons of state, Emil and Laura are soon on the trail of drug gangs, scientists, anarchists and even the secrets of a long-forgotten ancient civilisation.

The stakes rise at every step. Can Emil solve the curse of the Blood Diamond before not just more lives but entire continents are lost?
