From the cover: “Nikolai Borodin, a young trader working for the Soviet diamond export agency and based in London, has found himself in a dilemma recently. Becoming more Anglophile by the day, and passionately in love with a beautiful English woman Vivien Holbert, he sees no escape from the fate of sooner or later being posted back to the Soviet Union — until he makes a discovery that changes everything… a huge diamond smuggling operation is going on. ‘The System’, the ruthless British cartel that is becoming increasingly dependent on Siberian diamonds as other sources dry up, is determined to root out their smugglers…and their chief suspects are Nikolai and his Moscow superior Grigori Savich. Nikolai may be innocent of the charge, but he suddenly sees an opportunity. Perhaps he can bring off a coup that will leave him rich. Although the forces with which he is playing with are dangerous in the extreme.”
