In Russia, after the discovery of the world's richest diamond mine in Siberia, Gregori Novek struggles to uncover the truth behind the murder of his closest friend and searches for a fortune in missing diamonds.

Blackwell North Amer
The Iron Curtain is down, and Russia has become a smuggler's paradise. Hidden behind a curtain of ice in Siberia's far north is the richest diamond mine on earth, a motherlode of treasure so vast it could break the back of the world's oldest - and wealthiest - cartel. A cartel that will buy the enemies it can ... and eliminate the ones it cannot.
Against this turbulent backdrop, Gregori Nowek searches for the truth behind the murder of his best friend - shot in cold blood on a dark Moscow street. In a violent land where a twenty-dollar bill can buy or end a life, half a billion dollars in rough diamonds have vanished, lost between Siberia's mines and Moscow's vaults. The brutal murder of his best friend tests everything Nowek believes as a Russian, and as a man.
Nowek's search will take him back to the place he knows best ... Siberia, where the reason for his friend's murder is buried inside a gem-filled chasm beneath eternal ice and snow. It is a secret guarded by the vastness of Siberia, the diamond cartel, and a beautiful young woman who, like the dazzling gems, is trapped in a grim city walled off from the world behind a curtain of ice.
Dangerously stubborn and committed to the truth, Nowek risks his life to vindicate a friend, to secure Russia's future, and to bring an astounding act of deception into the light of day.
