Review: THE CASE OF THE YELLOW DIAMOND by Carl Brookins
I found this mystery quite engrossing, a real page-turner. In the first few pages I expected a sort of modern-day update of the private eye novels of the 1940's, but quickly I became very intrigued by the double mysteries, that in contemporary Minneapolis-St. Paul (and elsewhere in the U.S.) and the historical mystery from 1944, over Yap Island in the Pacific. Author Brookins keeps readers engaged as one mysterious occurrence piles onto another; and always, always just in the background are the events of 1944, the U.S. bombers shot down over Yap Island, a granduncle missing and presumed dead, a military investigation into potential smuggling at that time. You can't go wrong with THE CASE OF THE YELLOW DIAMOND--it's most intriguing.
