Days later, the harpoon-impaled body of one of the guards floats to the banks of the Potomac River. But the body's discovery doesn't put the authorities any closer to finding the diamonds, the money, or the killers of Eagle's guards.
Six months later, with the case gone cold, ex-Virginia cop turned private investigator Beauford Sloan leaves the serenity of his Blue Ridge Mountain ranch and takes the case, on the request of the dead guard's mother. She wants her son's killers brought to justice. Eagle Security's insurance company wants the diamonds and money recovered, and the police and FBI want to close the case. Beauford Sloan sets out on a trail of clues where death seems to follow his every step.

Enjoyable characters, much action, shallow plot
I enjoyed the first part of the book getting to know Beauford Sloan and his friends and the build-up of suspense. There is a lot of action. However, after a certain point, the plot became transparent and the villain not hard to guess, almost by the process of elimination. It is written like a TV movie, which perhaps it will become, with lots of action, but in the end, I was disappointed. The police and FBI are not so dumb as they were made out. The actor look-alike Wilford Brimley is overdone. The narrator is good; no complaints. If, like me, you never heard of Ray Austin, it won't spoil the book if you look him up on the wikipedia.

This book read like it was written byan amateur. A lot of extranious language that had very little meaning to the story. When reading a bookk , especally one of adventure and intrigue, I have no time to listen trivial talk. Will think twice before I listen to Mr. Austin.
