The Case of the Yellow Diamond Book Review


””



Title: The Case of the Yellow Diamond
Author: Carl Brookins
Published: 2015, North Star Press of St. Cloud, Inc.
No. of Pages: 176
Cover Price: $14.95 Paperback, $9.99 Kindle



Sean Sean is back in another fun thriller, The Case of the Yellow Diamond. He is contacted by a new client who has been trying to find the remains of a fighter jet off the island of Yap where his wife’s uncle went down during World War II. His client has visited the island a few times before with his wife, but someone is trying to sabotage his upcoming visit. Her father and some friends and relatives financed the previous visits, but they are unwilling to dish out funds again. Something is up, and the investigation opens up a case of smuggling and possibly murder.

Brookins’ Sean Sean series are delightful, and written tongue-in-cheek. Sean Sean is certainly an unlikely hero, given the fact that he is just over 5’ tall. He’s a good detective, though, and his live-in girlfriend, Catherine, (who is over 6’ tall), helps him solve the cases. Brookins does a good job with his characters, and readers can imagine them as real people, albeit, unique and peculiar.

The Case of the Yellow Diamond is a fast read, due to the fact that it is fairly short, and the fact that the humor flows easily. Brookins’ Sean Sean thrillers are perfect for a plane ride or a few unaccounted for hours, since they can be finished quickly and the stories are simple enough that interruptions won’t hinder the enjoyment of the books. There are a few grammatical errors throughout, but they aren’t serious enough to make the novel difficult to read.

Although there is a bit of sexual innuendo between Sean Sean and Catherine, the books are clean, and there is no graphic sex or violence. Given that, the book is suitable for almost all ages.

Special thanks to PJ Nunn of Breakthrough Promotions for supplying a review copy of this book.
