Before Black Diamond

Genre: Romantic Suspense Thriller, Short Stories

For Fans Of

I'd have to reason that if JD Robb (suspense) and Beverly Jenkins (contemporary romance) had a literary love child with the humor of Janet Evanovich and the intense character dynamics of Lori Foster without full sex scenes and edge-of-your-seat would be me.

Book Summary

Camille Blackwell is an undercover FBI agent posing as a jewelry purchaser in an international diamond trading company. Her assignment is to identify the domestic players in the Imperial Dynasty—an international terrorist group suspected of trafficking conflict diamond.

Before Black Diamond is a collection of short stories about a few of the key characters in Black Diamond. Each story will take you from the CEO of an international to a young African boy who faces danger at the hands of terrorists to protect his family.

Readers will meet the characters before they were left with no choice but to do what they had to do, leaving dead bodies and a half million dollars unaccounted for.

Before Black Diamond includes an excerpt from Black Diamond.


This little gem gives readers a glimpse into the backgrounds of some of the very memorable characters created by Ja'Nese Dixon. In their own words, each character gives a brief "behind the scenes" look at some aspect of their personal lives. As a writer, I love journaling for my characters, and these are great examples of this technique. Not just for writers, these journal entries are for anyone who wants to know more about the characters of Black Diamond. My personal favorite was the entry for Talib!
