About Death and Diamonds:
The riotous reunion of two sisters. After escaping her mob past, Gabriella is making a new life for herself. Her sister, Sylvie is mobbed up and a walking disaster in five-inch heels. She arrives on the eve of Gabriella’s wedding, pissed off that she’s not invited. Sylvie carries a gun in her Gucci handbag along with her husband’s severed finger. The gun is to protect her from the Borkovic crime family. They have given her one week to return six million in diamonds or else. She blames Vince, Gabriella’s deceased husband, for the old vendetta and murder of Drago Borkovic. She reckons her sister is obliged to help. No way is Gabriella ever getting mixed up with the mob again. But when a mob-heavy attempts to kidnap them, they are forced to take drastic measures. They fall back on their skills: Sylvie offers a roll in the hay while the more practical, Gabriella, wants to cook for him. In an awkward self-defence scramble, the gun goes off. The bullet ricochets off Gabriella’s cast-iron skillet and the mobster drops dead. Now, they’re faced with the perennial mob problem; what to do with the body? To protect her family, Gabriella agrees to a wild ride in a stolen truck through the Australian countryside with her hair-brained sister at the wheel. They break more laws in their attempt to dump the corpse. But when they cross paths with an escaped convict wanted for murder, their prospects turn bleak. The bodies start to pile up and Gabriella wonders if she can trust Sylvie. Things don’t add up. But if they hope to survive the Borkovics they need to stick together. When Gabriella’s son is kidnapped, the stakes become personal. Can they find the missing diamonds? Will they get through their ordeal alive? The quarrelsome sisters put the fun back in dysfunctional!

Victoria Kosky refuses to let age or approaching senility prevent her from accomplishing a lifelong dream. She writes satirical crime fiction and crafts light-hearted stories of murder and mayhem. As Ray Bradbury said, ‘I don’t believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously.’ She is a retired Australian grandma living in Spain for half of each year (until covid). Not keen on change, she has stuck with the same husband for 47 years. She claims that her murder research is all theoretical for her novels, but hubby is getting mighty suspicious.
