Product Description

Product Description

Robert von Wolf hat unter großen Gefahren ein kleines Vermögen auf den Diamantfeldern der Namibwüste gemacht, kauft mit seiner jungen Frau die Farm Daribib, steigt aus dem aktiven Diamantgeschäft aus und widmet sich intensiv seiner alten Leidenschaft, der Mineralogie. Während der nächsten zehn Jahre, in Deutschland ist bereits die NSDAP an der Macht, gewinnt er entscheidende Erkenntnisse über den Atomaufbau von Diamant und dessen Beeinflussung durch die neue Hochdruck-Hochtemperatur Technologie. Er gerät ins Fadenkreuz des deutschen Geheimdienstes, der in der Herstellung synthetischer Diamanten für die Kriegsindustrie einen unschlagbaren Vorteil sieht. Die Situation spitzt sich zu, als das mächtige De Pass Kartell durch geldgierige Informanten von seinen Forschungen erfährt. Die Amerikaner und die Russen befinden sich in einer ähnlichen Situation wie die Deutschen, sie wollen die Diamantsynthese für ihre Rüstungsindustrie um ihrerseits unabhängig vom Kartell zu sein. Robert versucht einen Befreiungsschlag in London und gerät zwischen alle Fronten.

More About the Author

For me, three things make a good novel: It immediately sweeps us away from our everyday life to another, more exciting world. The story has been researched thoroughly and written in such a gripping fashion that times just flies. And if the reader also learns something new while having fun, then it's a real stroke of luck. My aim when writing is not my self-discovery as an author, but to provide the reader with a worthwhile way to spend his or her precious leisure time.

Each of the three parts of "Shades of Brilliance" does just this. The trilogy covers seventy years of diamond history with all ups and downs. And yes, I am an insider. Over the years many interesting people have shared information with me about true incidents, scientific and political background knowledge, and these have been included in the novels. I very much appreciate this inspiration and the stimulating time spent with these people at the hot spots of the international diamond business. Without them and their undiminished interest in the hardest and most beautiful form of carbon my books would never have been written.

Come and join me in the brilliant and dark facets of the secretive diamond business.
