The Angolan Clan Paperback
Part of the African Diamonds series
1974 - following the Revolution of Carnations, Portugal is transformed into a communist state.
Capitalists become hunted prey and the liberated Portuguese colonies enter into the longest and bloodiest civil wars in history.
The fabled Angolan diamond mines are closed down. A group of refugees manages to escape with a hoard of Angolan diamonds, which bring them wealth and success.
But a legacy of revenge and greed will eventually catch up with them with fatal consequences. 2008 - a millionaire businessman drowns in the pool of his mansion in Marbella; a wealthy Frenchman is killed while skiing in the Alps; and a Portuguese playboy is found murdered with a prostitute in New York.
The series of deaths sets Jenny Bishop, a young English widow, and Angolan born Leticia da Costa, on a terrifying journey into the past - to revisit the Portuguese revolution and the Angolan civil war.
Through posthumous messages they begin to unlock a 30 year old mystery that promises to change their lives forever - if they live to tell the tale.
