A well written book. However, it is full of unrelentingly nasty people. Most books have the good , the bad and the ugly. This one has mainly the bad and the ugly. Hard to find anyone to cheer for. Some very interesting background on South Africa, its fabled diamond industry, and its spectacular but troubled history.
