Brilliant Cut is the sequel to ‘Rough Cut’, where the newly married Charlie Robertson continues his struggle to establish his international diamond business, but now having enemies more determined than ever trying to stop him.
Two South African murderers, Jan Kruger and Marius Botha, were outplayed by Charlie in Rough Cut, and now will go to almost any lengths to prevent Robertson Mining ever selling diamonds. But Kruger and Botha look like Florence Nightingale compared to the evil but highly intelligent Konrad Lubbe, the ex-Stasi Colonel now out to make Charlie pay, and pay dearly.
