The story is about Jake Bastin; an English teenager, who is in Milan with his father for an international football tournament. Instead of attending the tournament, he is stuck at a photo shooting with his mother who is a photographer. She is making pictures of a top model wearing a priceless South African diamond. There he met Abri, a supermodel, who will help him in his investigation about the owner of the diamond because he is involved in illicit activity… He is not a very nice character. Do you think that Jake is going to find the owner of the diamond?
I have chosen this book because there’s always suspense and action. I enjoyed the book because it is quite easy to understand and I like thriller novels.
I don’t think I will ever read this book again although this book is original and amusing.
I would recommend this book to readers who like action, suspense and adventure. An essential read for young people.
It is easy to read although the vocabulary is sometimes complicated. It was challenging for me to read this book because my level in English is not very good.
