In Diamonds Can Be Dangerous, a hard-hitting, swift-moving "Who done it" with a difference, the author, Bob O'keefe, has succeeded in producing a first class murder mystery in which very human South Africans are prominently featured against a Johannesburg backdrop of crime and intrigue. Already described as South Africa's Peter Cheyney, he writes about corpses and cops with a Damon Runyon vitality, particularly describing the naturalised American hero, Theuns Marais, a South African-born private investigator on a special mission to his native country from Chicago headquarters of Keyes Investigations. Theuns is tracking down Clarence, a notorious and ruthless international gangster who wiped out a former Keyes Investigator before immigrating to Johannesburg together with an equally notorious night club Queen, Hildegarde, who makes most cover girls look positively back-page. Bob O'keefe's first novel will hold you in suspense to the very last page of the surprising ending of this story.
