Shelfari edited the description of The Diamond Takers (Lady Violet's Casebook series) Thursday, September 3, 2009.
Lady Violet is an ace at solving mysteries. So when thieves steal her old friend's diamonds, she is determined to catch them. The trail leads Violet and her sidekick Garth to Monte Carlo and the glamorous, twilit world of the casinos—where fortunes are won and lost by the beautifully-dressed crowds around the roulette wheel, and it's easy picking for thieves. But who are the gamblers and who are the thieves? Nothing is as it seems. Then Violet's mother's jewelry is stolen and the robbers are within Violet's grasp. To get away, they'll stop at nothing—even murder. Can Violet and Garth catch them in time?
