About the Book

Detective Superintendent George Quinn - Mayfair resident and dandy with a razor-sharp brain - has set up a new police unit, dedicated to investigating the super-rich. When he is shot in mysterious circumstances, DI Blake Reynolds is charged with taking over. But Reynolds hadn't bargained for Quinn's personal assistant - the flinty Victoria Clifford - who knows more than she's prepared to reveal...

The trail left by Quinn leads to a jewellery theft, a murderous conspiracy among some of the most glamorous (and richest) Russians in London - and the beautiful Anna, who challenges Reynolds' professional integrity. Reynolds and Clifford must learn to work together fast - or risk Quinn's fate.

Set in the heart of twenty-first-century Mayfair, a world of champagne, Lamborghinis and Savile Row suits, The Yellow Diamond is a brilliant new venture from one of our best loved crime authors - meticulously plotted, wonderfully humane and hugely enjoyable.

“Hugely enjoyable, beautifully written and cleverly au courant.”
- Tatler
“Martin has created a great atmosphere in the novel - the backdrop of Mayfair, the ultra-wealthy and their behaviour as if above the law is captivating and in some ways almost timeless. This novel could be in the 1930's or even the nineteenth century, as that conflict between wealth, power and the law plays out. My verdict - well worth a read!”
- Roman Baczynski, The Crime Warp
