Cape DiamondDownloadable Audiobook - 2019 | Unabridged.
Cape Diamond, the second book in the Frank Yakabuski Mystery series, is atmospheric and action-packed. Set near the Northern Divide - as was the first installment, Edgar Award nominee (Best Paperback Original), Ragged Lake - the book opens with Yakabuski called to investigate a gruesome crime scene. A body has been left hanging from a schoolyard fence. On closer inspection, Yak finds a large diamond in the murder victim's mouth. Two criminal gangs - the Shiners and the Travellers - are fighting with each other, and Yakabuski turns to his father, a now-retired detective who has a long history with the gangs, for advice in the interrogation. Is the conflict over the murder of two men' The kidnapping of a little girl' Or, possibly, the diamond found in Augustus Morrissey's mouth' As if this weren't enough for one detective, a serial killer is taking a deadly road trip through the United States, heading towards the Northern Divide. Ron Corbett weaves the various strands together with ingenuity, making Cape Diamond a brooding, suspense-filled story of hubris, betrayal, and evil deeds; his writing is sparse and taut, compelling the reader to follow the action and gang conflict to a surprise ending.
