Dave Donelson brings his expertise as a journalist to his first novel, Heart of Diamonds. Donelson takes readers deep into the heart of government corruption. Journalist Valerie Grey discovers a link between a televangelist, the White House, and the President of Congo in a diamond smuggling deal. The governments do not want the situation made known and will go to any lengths to stop her from making the plot public.
Heart of Diamonds has something for almost every reader: a touch of romance, suspense, and intrigue; this is an action-packed thriller. Donnelson captured my attention early in this tale, and he held my attention to the very last page. His inspiration for Heart of Diamonds came from an article concerning a televangelist. He wants people to know the plight of the people in Congo. This is not a quick read or an easy read, but it is an excellent read.
