‘DIRTY DIAMONDS’ #4 of the Hawkman Series, is about the plight of JASMINE LOUISE GRAY, a twenty three year old attractive woman, after she committed a jewelry heist in Oklahoma City.  

She lured CARL HOPKINS, her unwanted lover and a skilled computer hacker, into stealing diamonds.  Jamey accompanies Carl to the hotel where the courier, BOB EVANS was scheduled to spend the night.  During the robbery, Carl was wounded, but manages to transfer the loot to Jamey, who escapes before the police arrive.  

Jamey travels cross country to Los Angles where she spends a night with TINA RANDOLPH, her high school girlfriend who couldn’t keep a secret if her life depended on it.  Jamey knew Carl would track her on the computer and contact Tina.  So she feeds her friend a false story about how Carl abused her and she was heading into Mexico for a short vacation.   


Jamey had no intention of going anywhere but to Medford, Oregon, where she’d 

inherited a small cottage from her aunt.  She planned to hide there until the heat blew over.  When she leaves Tina’s, she destroys her credit cards and replaces them with ones that are printed with her alias, Jasmine Louise Schyler.


When she arrives in Medford, she meets Private Investigator, TOM CASEY, better known as ‘HAWKMAN’.  She gets a job at Curly’s Bar & Grill and thinks about hiring Hawkman to protect her when someone follows her home from 

work one night.  But when Hawkman pumps her about personal information, she drops the idea.

 "Dirty Diamonds” by Betty Sullivan La Pierre

Dirty Diamonds by Betty Sullivan La Pierre is a delightful mix of mystery and romance. Betty has a way of writing that draws you right into the characters. You will love the story of Jamey as she tires to survive until she can be reunited with her lover.

Jamey Gray becomes involved with Carl and they plan a diamond heist. Unfortunately Carl is injured and passes off the diamonds to Jamey, who absconds with all the jewels. She has to lay low though until she and her real partner/lover can be reunited. The adventure begins here as we watch Jamey lie, cheat and mainulate everyone in the whole story. No one can believe what they find out about her. In between all this she is trying to keep both she and her lover safe.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves both mystery and love. You will enjoy the ending. I know it caught me totally by surprise. Have fun reading this one.
