Win Liberte has it all. He prides himself on never having worked a day in his life. He has everything he wants: fast cars, beautiful women, a racing yacht and a penthouse in Manhattan. Orphaned at eleven, Win inherited an international diamond business that is managed by his uncle. Then Win loses it all when his uncle commits suicide after investing all of Win's money in a scheme that fails. His single remaining asset is a bankrupt diamond mine in Angola, the steaming, war-ravaged country in equatorial Africa. In the blood and muck of central Africa, Win experiences the "Diamond Curse" first hand. Battles over Angola's vast wealth in gems occur daily, and fights for control of the diamond industry have wiped out generations. Thriving on the challenge, Win founds an international diamond business that challenges a powerful cartel's stranglehold on the market. Loved by two women - a movie goddess who sears men's souls and a dedicated UN worker who risks her life in Africa - Win doesn't find anything worth living for until be loses love. From the tunnels of the diamond mine to the stage at the Academy Awards, from the beds of beautiful women to a battle with warlords, Win has to fight to get back everything he ever wanted.

The idea for this book is supposedly Robbins, but the book was written after his death in 1997. The author is good, and it is in the style of Harold Robbins. The main character is a rich young man by the name of Win Liberte who has never worked a day in his life, living off of the allowance his father set up through their diamond business. He's the playboy type and drives fast cars. His uncle Bernie took over the business after Win's father died, which was fine with Win. Suddenly Win finds himself broke; his uncle Bernie has committed suicide after losing all the family money on bad investments. Win 's only asset is a diamond mine in war torn Angola that is running in the red. This story is about the diamond business, the Angola civil war, several very dangerous and cruel people bent on making their fortune with diamonds, and about Win trying to regain a fortune he lost. The story moves fast, and will keep your interest.
