"30 Pieces of Silver:The Judas Payoff"



A spectacular diamond heist in the heart of Amsterdam; a robbery so daring that it opens a real Pandora’s Box, which nobody is able to close. Millions in


rare uncut 'African-Blues' taken from right under their well guarded noises.


Roma, a disgruntled KGB agent, whose ex-partner a psychotic killer has a single interest in life; kill the one man that keeps his lust for life alive.


An adventure from the lost diamond mines of Ethiopia, too modern day murder slavery and kidnap, an insight into the workings of the human mind coming to


grips with greed, lust and power. An epic tale based on the foundation of the DeBeers Diamond Empire, and world domination.
