Book Review of 'eye of the god' by Ariel Allison

eye of the god was written by Ariel Allison and published in 2009. It may be purchased at http://www.amazon.com/eye-god-Ariel-Allison/dp/1426700687/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1326837824&sr=1-1
and you can visit the author at http://www.arielallison.com/  

eye of the god (and the author uses lower case for the title) is built around a plot to steal the famous Hope Diamond from its home at Washington’s Smithsonian Institution. Abby Mitchell, responsible for a gala event centered around the diamond, is the central figure in a mystery that starts slowly and builds to a thundering crescendo.

As the author weaves the tale, she provides a great deal of history concerning the diamond and the alleged curse that travels with it, taking the reader back to its earliest known appearance in India. Among those who suffered while owning the diamond were Marie Antoinette and Washington socialite Evalyn Walsh McLean.

I feel that the author did a fine job in building the intrigue necessary to enthrall the reader and I give the eye of the god 4 1/2 Spiders.
