       Additional Information  
      Mitch Laughton is the man you need to know after a jewelry heist. And there's been a heist, a rather large one--$6 million in gems from an Iranian businessman who lives in New Jersey. Laughton, a former jeweler who now works full-time recovering stolen stones, begins to track the job and is led to mob boss Joe Riccio while trying to stay out of the sights of an assassin, Furio Visconti. Laughton also contends with, though in an entirely different way, his beautiful yet eccentric and blind wife, who's given to playing guitar in the nude. Laughton combs through the heart of the New York diamond district and its penthouse residents, hunting for jewels and clues as he unravels this complex and beguiling crime.
