The story centers on a new CIA officer, Eric Dane, who finds himself shot and left for dead after his very first assignment. This makes for a golden, or rather diamond, opportunity for Operation Pop UP — the CIA’s code name for its mission to stop trillions of precious stones about to flow out of Russia’s Popigai Crater.
Now as a ghost in the field, Eric vows to unearth the forces that hold the world’s diamond market in its hands. However, the serpentine trail he takes leads to shocking discoveries far more bizarre than anyone imagines.
“Hope you enjoy my story and it transports you into Eric’s incredible journey from Miami to New York, Paris to Popigai as he fleshes out the powers that be.” Elaine Gallant
