“Ferocity takes on a new meaning when it comes to Derek Venray’s solution for the dilemma facing the DeBoar Diamond Empire. If Derek is ever to become a member of DeBoar’s inner circle, it is up to him to preserve the illusion that diamonds are rare gems. When a concealed cache of diamonds worth more than 150 billion dollars is about to be offered on the open market, the threat to the DeBoars is seen as catastrophic. But Derek Venray has the perfect plan: Get rid of the cache in a place where it can never be recovered. Where might that be? Even the pharaohs couldn’t protect their fortunes by trying to seal them in Great Pyramids.
Thanks to modern technology, though, Derek discovers that there is a perfect place—the deep canyons of the South Atlantic. Derek’s son, Paul, is doing scientific research there using a deep-sea drilling ship—he is also running out of funding for leasing the highly specialized rig.
To have his plan succeed, Derek considers anyone, even his wife, Alena, and Paul, to be expendable. Alena and Paul may be in danger anyway, caught between Derek’s greed and Navy Commander, Teague Browning’s determination for revenge.”
