Parker helps retrieve diamonds from a corrupt African leader. This is kind of by the numbers for a Parker book. The parts with the opposing factions from the African country were pretty interesting, but the rest was fairly standard. I keep getting more and more irritated with Claire and her effect on Parker. I prefer Parker when he is single minded and ruthless.
This isn't my favorite of the Parkers by any stretch but it IS a Parker book, thereby making it a worthwhile read. I would suggest this for the completist. For those new to Parker start with The Hunter.
