PAGE TURNERS

Diamond Trump

"One of American Literature's unforgettable characters . . ."

---William X. Kienzle

"A delightful and entertaining visit
to Depression-era crime . . ."

---J. Madison Davis

A fortune in gems, star-crossed lovers, the sole survivor of a ferocious blast- these are the ingredients of a deadly game played out on the same Midwestern checkerboard where Dillinger, "Baby-Face" Nelson, and Bonnie and Clyde made their moves. To the roll-call of depression-era desperadoes add the name of Raymond "Preacher" Hardokker, a safe-cracking wizard lured into a "Big Score" which turns out to be a bloody fight for life. Diamond Trump* travels along the dusty roads and mean streets of the dirty thirties, encountering along the way humor, suspense, mystery, lust, and the tragedy of "hard diamonds and soft hearts."
