And in a future where crime meets cutting-edge technology, she will attempt to track down the diamonds once and for all-and stop the danger and death that have surrounded them for years.

Comments about Big Jack:
A diamond heist over 50 years ago… all the people involved are dead… a quarter of the diamonds not found when the rest were…
When author Samantha (Sam) Gannon was almost home from her 2 week book tour, a hugely successful tour as well, she was incredibly relieved. A hot bath, a glass of wine, all communication off for two days…she was going to rest, chill out! But entry into her home put paid to those plans, and the shock and horror of the next few hours, with Lieutenant Eve Dallas, and newly badged Detective Peabody on scene, had her so distraught…how had murder happened in her home?
So begins the search for clues, for motive, and with the reading of Sam's new book, it seemed there was motive there after all. When a second body appears, and Dallas can see the two cases just might be connected, the race is on. With Dallas and her team, along with Roarke at her side, the case takes on a life of its own…
Another brilliant In Death tale, with Dallas kicking butt the whole way through!
A perfect marriage of sensuality and suspense...A true master of her craft, Roberts has penned an exceptional tale that burns with all the brilliance and fire of a finely cut diamond. Publishers Weekly [A] sexy, suspensful novel...another addictive blend of scintillating prose and sharply etched characters that will dazzle and delight her devoted readers. Booklist"
