Reviewed by Frank Mutuma for Readers' Favorite

Jack was a respected emerald dealer before venturing to Africa, where he lost everything and had to start afresh. His hopes are on his friend Itzhak, who is an emerald dealer in Brazil. Itzhak had immigrated to Brazil from Vienna in the thirties after things had become hostile for the Jewish community. His brother had not been so lucky when he remained. Professor Fontes had dedicated his life to the search for the Borba mine, which most people, including Jack, believed was just a legend, but with what he had shown Itzhak, the legend was possibly true. Jack and Itzhak strike a deal to find the professor and the legendary mine. To find out how things unfold for Jack and the quest to discover the emeralds, get a copy of Emerald Greed by Brian Ray Brewer.

The Emerald Greed by Brian Ray Brewer is wonderfully written and captured my imagination from the first chapter to the last. This page-turner was an endless adventure without me having to leave my couch. Brian vividly captured the events and places expertly. The plot line flows flawlessly, leaving no room for confusion for the reader, and the steady narration contributes to the overall appeal of the book. I loved the twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and longing for more. The characters were well developed, and the easy-to-understand language used makes the book accessible to all kinds of readers. I cannot wait to read something else by this talented author.
