Rough Cut
by Owen Carey Jones

When a New York dealer in gemstones discovers a number of top quality synthetic diamonds in a batch he has bought, industry watchdog, the Federation of International Diamond Traders calls in Belizean, Carter Jefferson to trace their origin.

Carter, a synthetic diamond specialist who recently quit working or the FIDT to concentrate on writing but who still works for them on an ad hoc basis, is reluctant to take the case until he finds a reference in the file which takes him back 25 years to the time he was a geology student at Oxford University.

Old relationships are revived and family secrets emerge as an attractive English girl and a passionate young Frenchman are sucked into the web of deceit and death surrounding the illicit gems.

This debut novel is a thriller with lots of twists and turns that will keep you reading and wondering how it will all work out. Gripping stuff, I read it in one sitting. Highly recommended.

Bought this book as its a new author. To me too many of the well read authors become stale and stick to the same format/story lines.
This book is a good read and is raw around the edges. But has a good central character, who I sense could have a good shelf life. The whole story is well written and has plenty of twists and turns. It was very hard to put this book down. Looking forward to the next one already....
I wish Owen well. having met him in person, he deserves to be read by a wider market.
