A tale of diamonds, betrayal, murder and revelations

The Angolan Clan - Christopher Lowery

 

 

This long novel deals with a successful businessman who flees the Revolution of the carnations in Portugal of 1975 and deals with diamonds from Angola. It also deals with the aftermath of his business ventures in 2008.

 

Jenny, the main protagonist in this latter part, uncovers the mystery behind the business and becomes embroiled in a devious plot involving murder, forgery and dastardly deeds.

 

There are a lot of characters to keep track of and they are well-developed and the novel is enjoyable enough to want to know what happens. Well-researched, it does have a lot of short descriptions, some of which are really unnecessary in my opinion.
