DIAMOND IN THE DESERT: A Hope Diamond Mystery by Karen Gilleland

Hope Diamond, head of Diamond Security, must find a killer among the very clients she is hired to protect. The assignment
should have been a routine protection job—security for four wealthy women and their entourages at Secret Sands Resort in the Navajo Nation for a week of secret meetings. That’s until one of the guests turns up dead.

When FBI Agent Matt Dennison lands at Secret Sands, Diamond must overcome his hostility to solve the case. Native customs and the all-encompassing desert permeate the investigation while Chindi, the dead woman’s spirit, casts a menacing shadow.

The clock is ticking. Diamond must find the answer before the guests depart. But how do you unmask a killer you’re being paid to protect?
