The Diamond Conspiracy

For years, the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has enjoyed the favor of Her Majesty the Queen. But as agents Brooks and Braun soon learn in the fourth novel in the steampunk adventure series, even the oldest loyalties can turn in a moment… Having narrowly escaped the electrifying machinations of Thomas Edison, Books and Braun are looking forward to a relaxing and possibly romantic voyage home. But when Braun’s emergency signal goes off, all thoughts of recreation vanish. Braun’s street-wise team of child informants, the Ministry Seven, is in grave peril, and Books and Braun must return to England immediately. But when the intrepid agents finally arrive in London, the situation is even more dire than they imagined. The Ministry has been disavowed, and the Department of Imperial Inconveniences has been called in to decommission its agents in a most deadly fashion. The plan reeks of the Maestro’s dastardly scheming. Only, this time, he has a dangerous new ally—a duplicitous doctor whose pernicious poisons have infected the highest levels of society, reaching even the Queen herself...

The Diamond Conspiracy

The last thing Department of Justice lawyer Patrick Carlton wanted was this case-a minor antitrust suit over a small diamond mine in Arkansas, forced on him by a vindictive boss. Settle it and be done with it, he's told, and he goes about doing just that-until he finds out what lurks beneath the surface. The conspiracy he uncovers, beginning with an obscure 1920 geological survey and leading all the way to South Africa, Siberia, Rome and the White House, revolves around one obsession: diamonds. Carlton lands the case of his life, and it will be his last if he can?t locate a hidden Russian diamond stockpile, bring a corrupt White House chief of staff to justice and break up a diamond monopoly controlled by the nefarious Waterboer Mining Co. Carlton, an unlikely and reluctant hero, finds help from a disparate group, including a beguiling female coworker, a CIA desk-jockey and a flamboyant millionaire-entrepreneur. Lined against them is an array of factions looking to use the diamonds to further their own agendas. Carlton's quest to find the diamonds-and save his own skin-takes him across the Atlantic and into the Barents Sea, to the Vatican and inside the White House. Forced to confront one foe after another, Carlton finally gets Waterboer in the place he can hurt them most-a courtroom. A compelling page-turner from beginning to end, Kublicki delivers the goods with the legal and military realism of Grisham and Clancy. "Tom Clancy for the legal set."-Kirkus Reviews "Kublicki builds an impressively complex plot in this well-crafted, exciting political thriller?[he] shows more than enough of the right stuff to make this a readable, engaging debut."-Publishers Weekly "Tightly written and fast paced a la Tom Clancy's thrillers....Recommended for most popular fiction collections."-Library Journal "This is an enormous novel for first-timer Kublicki, and though vast in scope, its intense drama keeps the pages turning at a quick pace.

The Moonstone

Intrigue, investigations, thievery, drugs and murder all make an appearance in Collins’s classic who-done-it, The Moonstone. Published in serial form in 1868, it was inspired in part by a spectacular murder case widely reported in the early 1860s. Collins’s story revolves around a diamond stolen from a Hindu holy place. On her eighteenth birthday, Rachel Verinder receives the diamond, but by the following morning the stone has been stolen again. As the story unravels through multiple eyewitness accounts, the elderly Sergeant Cuff—with a face “sharp as a hatchet”—looks for the culprit. One of Collins’s best-loved novels, with an exciting plot moved along by deftly-drawn characters and elegant pacing, The Moonstone was also turned into a play by Collins; the play appears as an appendix to this edition.
