Much of what Marr has written is common knowledge but it is well scripted. I did not expect such an unbiased view of our Sovereign from such a well known left winger. At the Cape Town Diamond Museum one can lay their eyes on an exact replica of the original Cullinan diamond, as well as many of the other world famous diamonds through the ages. Find out more about the museum and book your guided tour here. It has also has two detachable pendants, and emerald and the Cullinan VII. A very well researched and informative read – no surprise there – Andrew Marr’s trademark , of course.
It’s a fascinating history of Queen Elizabeth II and all the political manipulation by various governments. Things such as the Suez crisis which I can remember suddenly fall into context, and other less well remembered events are explained in a succinct manner. It is very readable and a recommended read for anyone living in the reign of the current monarch.

The fact that an evangelical church is behind all of this, makes the theft that much worse. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. While the site is in maintenance mode some features won’t be available. This includes adding items to the cart, viewing your order history, placing orders, customizing items, checking delivery times and delivery status. A most interesting book and thoroughly good read.
Really liked the early ones, but didn’t much care for the last couple. This was much better, and I appreciated the return to Ava’s forensic accountancy skills and more Toronto scenes. When Ava’s best friend Mimi’s father commits suicide after losing all of the family’s money, Ava agrees to look into it. Little does she know that this agreement will lead her back into the debt collection activity she used to do with Uncle.
Ian Hamilton has become one of my go to authors for a good story and he doesn’t fail with this book. I want more relationship, for instance, it felt like the title wasn’t quite justified. The diamond queen of Singapore wasn’t the pivotal point and the church was. I read reviews about this book and decided it was for me. You can almost hear Andrew Marr speaking when you read it.
