Meet Scott Sapphire—lover of French champagne, Belgian chocolate and dangerous men. He is suave. He is sexy. He is a man of the world—and a man that the world desperately wants to catch.
For Scott Sapphire is the greatest jewel thief of our time.
Dashing. Daring. And always neck-deep in trouble.
But when Scott’s latest heist lands him in possession of a map to a rare and precious orchid, it’ll take more than bedroom eyes and a charming smile to stay one step ahead of one of the world’s most powerful business tycoons, as well as keep the CIA off Scott’s back and a handsome special agent out of his pants—or maybe not.
From the Venice canals to the Amazon rainforest, from Rio de Janeiro to the casinos of Monte Carlo, comes a brand new gay hero as irresistible as diamonds and pearls.
Adventure has a new name! And that name is Scott Sapphire.
It was my second book (but a third novel) by Geoffrey Knight, and though I can’t see myself as a Geoffrey Knight’s expert, not yet at least, I think I can already assess his writing style.
If you’re looking for deeply profound thoughts, extended powerful emotions, deeply psychological and realistic plot and painfully beautiful prose in your books, then you should probably search somewhere else. But if you want to take a pause from all these tragic events and depressing news of the last weeks, if you want to dive into a delightful and adventurous world of treasure hunting a là Geoffrey Knight, where impossible things are happening, where champagne is flowing, diamonds are sparking, where thief’s are sexy, generous, courageous and loyal, and where evil despite being mighty, powerful and smart, is always one step behind good and where good, friendship and love always win at the end.
Scott Sapphire and the Emerald Orchid is a wild and joyful blend of Indiana Jones, James Bond and Lara Croft (with a male actor in the main role), fast paced, sexy, captivating and funny. Reading it was like watching an action movie with a double speed. It is a real page turner, a playful modern tale a là Robin Hood with a high fun factor, that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Buckle up, the journey starts!
