Empty Treasures

(2010)
A novel by

 
The corruptive power of money and ambition in American politics begins in Venice where a Washington woman reporter trying to repair a bad marriage suddenly spots a professional jeweler, a key figure in the world of Washington's powerful social and political elite. When she returns to Washington she is shocked to discover that the jeweler has not returned and has, in effect, disappeared. This piques her curiosity and what she uncovers goes to the heart of political corruption on a grand scale; deals with diamonds smuggled into the country to finance a Presidential political campaign and how money and politics impacts family, children, friends and lovers. This tantalizing and complex thriller deals with the dark side of ambition and the lengths people will go to in an effort to attain political power.
