First of all, look at my precious little baby, isn’t it gorgeous????
Okay, very short summary;
Francis Blake needs to take a sacred Diamond his uncle stole from the Indians, to his cousin’s birthday as a gift. But the Diamond seems cursed, it gives the owner of the diamond terrible luck. On the night of the birthday the diamond gets stolen, but who did it? Why did they do it? 

In my review of The Woman in White I said that the book was my favourite book. I was wrong, this is about ten times better. It’s written in the same style, so many people tell their side of the story, but it’s written in a more ‘fun’ way. It reads really fast, it keeps making you want to read more and more. It also has got drawings in the book, and the books format is to look old, yellow pages for example, which is great.

If you like detective novels, history, and cute relationships, this is definitely a book to read!
