Publisher Comments:

Praise for Michael Genelin:

“Plenty of misdirection and suspense. . . . In the end, we must acknowledge that we have been held spellbound by a master storyteller.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Prudent Jana and impetuous Sofia were best friends when they were schoolmates. One day Sofia approached a man in a car when she shouldn’t have and ended up being raped by a nefarious Communist Party bigwig. Jana pursued the culprit’s car, identified him, and vowed someday to bring him to justice.

Now Jana is a commander in the Slovak police force and Sofia, having made her name as a reformer, is a member of Parliament. Jana has fallen in love with an upright government prosecutor and Sofia is carrying on a notorious affair with a suave, married fellow MP.

One day Jana finds an enormous diamond dangling from a string fixed to the ceiling of the living room of her house. Was it put there as a present? Or, more likely, to entrap her? Where did this magnificent jewel come from? And why was it left for her to find? The answer leads Jana across Europe to unravel a criminal conspiracy involving multiple murders which has entangled her hapless, impulsive friend, Sofia, in its web, and ultimately to the criminal mastermind, the onetime Communist Party boss.

Michael Genelin is a graduate of UCLA and the UCLA Law School. He has served with the Department of Justice in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Hungary. He lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.

Synopsis:

The second Commander Jana Matinova investigation set in Slovakia.
