About this title

Synopsis:

Two women and a diamond mine in Vietnam are the ingredients in a recipe cooked up by MI6 to ensnare Robbie Frazer. His business interests are multi-national, his wealth extraordinary, but he is corrupt and extorts what he needs by violence. Now, however, he is heading for a trap.

From Booklist:

Two old women friends collide in this cloak-and-dagger set in London, Hong Kong, and Hanoi. Cassie Stewart is an investor; her friend Eva Cunningham poses as one. After years in the Far East, Eva has returned to Britain, peddling a tale about a diamond mine in Vietnam. Unbeknownst to ambitiously greedy Cassie, Eva could care less about the ice: she's a British agent assigned by her controller to lure a third investor, Robie Frazer, into the mining venture. Controller Stormont wants to force Frazer, a murky moneyman with connections to Chinese criminals, to spy on Chinese nuclear proliferation, but Eva's private agenda is to kill Frazer for having once turned her into a junkie. And so Davies, in her second financial espionage tale (the first was Nest of Vipers ), must balance the three strands of intrigue--Cassie's greed, Eva's vengeance, Stormont's realpolitik--butd rather quickly forgets all except Eva. The other two hang around to the end, trailing in Eva's wake as she seduces Frazer in pursuit of her vendetta. A bit simple for devotees of international intrigue (the nuclear angle could have been better developed), but Davies makes Eva into a beautiful siren of spying, recommendation enough. Gilbert Taylor
