This book is a novel, written by an insider, about the 47th Street area in Manhattan which is the center of the nation's multi-billion dollar diamond industry. bBhind this diamond curtain lies a strange and chaotic world dominated by immigrant Jews, many of whom are survivors of the Holocaust, and their sons. Among the dealers, retailers, and manufacturers competition is fierce, often cut-throat. And yet the entire system operates on a simple, strict code of honor: a man's word is his bond. Millions of dollars' worth of stones may pass on consignment from one dealer to another with nothing tom record the transaction but a handshake.
