Another journey into the world of Richard Jury, Melrose Plant, and Marshall Trueblood. Lucky Melrose Plant who must travel to Africa to learn about the mining of gems and a local artist. The best character award goes to Patty Haigh, a ten-year-old girl, who follows the killer from London to Dubai to Africa. The world of the London taxi drivers amazes me with their knowledge of the streets, sites, and lore of London. Again, the Starrdust windows of animation present a world of imagination and wonder. So many layers of mystery and corruption in this story that what the readers believes at the beginning of the story completely changes by the end of the story. What an adventure through the different cities and countries in search of the truth! And the learning of gambling, art, and mining.
