What is the secret of The Da Vinci Diamond?
Three beautiful Russian women, along with Italian and Russian mobsters are all after The Da Vinci Diamond, a million dollar blue gem once owned by the great Leonardo himself.
San Francisco Police Detective Tony Mariani follows all the suspects and uncovers clues from the Bay Area and around the world. The evidence eventually leads to The National Museum of Rome, the original home of the gem.
The women, a mistress, jewel thief and assassin, provide plenty of action, murder, intrigue and romance as they manipulate others to find the diamond.
What is the key piece of evidence that unlocks the mystery? How does Mariani recover the diamond and arrest the conspirators? You’ll never guess the unpredictable ending but you’ll love the ride.

Read information about the author"What James Beard was to cooking, Jerry Guarino is to modern fiction."
Paul Soderberg (author of The Elephant Queen)
“I've been a fan of Jerry Guarino's work for a long time, and this latest offering (his debut novel!) is his best piece of fiction yet. Exciting, thrilling, well-researched and interesting, this book was difficult to put down once I picked it up. I love the pacing and the international intrigue so elegantly woven through this book. Working with his seemingly innate talent for crafting realistic, powerful and substantial exchanges between characters, Jerry weaves an impressive tale complete with a sense of steamy sensuality that shouldn't be missed. I loved the ending too!”
Earl Wynn - Thunderune Publishing
"Firstly - I love the cover, any photo of the Bay is going to make me open the book.
Mostly I love the way Jerry has a number of sub plots running alongside each other, moving back and forth from A to B to C etc. The characters are believable and well developed. Although your brain keeps saying that it has to all come together at the end, the finale is still a surprise, I didn't expect them to ..... sorry, you need to read it. Well done Jerry."
David Cousland - Author

“What an exciting ride!! The Da Vinci Diamond has been stolen and the thief has escaped. What follows is an international pursuit. I was immediately drawn into the world that Guarino has artfully created. This book has mystery, intrigue, sex and a shocking ending. I loved Guarino's characters and his writing style made the story come alive. A must read for anyone who enjoys "James Bond" type intrigue.”
Short Story Reviews:
"Trilogies is short story telling at its best."
Wayne C. Long (author of Eye Candy, Flash in the Hand, Stories from the Edges, Slow Dancing, Bad Bayou, Where Less is More and DX A Gift Like No Other)
"Jerry Guarino sends his readers on a merry chase through a wild array of micro/flash fiction--humor, satire and pathos. He artfully captures gentle souls and slick cons, the high brows and their unsuspecting victims in characters that step from the page to engage the reader. He finds the tiniest trait that creates zany folks the reader wants to protect or strangle. Often at the same time. Prepare for the surprise at the end. He gets you every time."
Myra H. McIlvain (author of Legacy)
"The stories in this collection are tightly told tales with engaging storylines and interesting characters. There are plenty of twists and turns, and plenty of characters to delight in (and some to despise)."
Nathaniel Tower (Pushcart Prize nominated author and editor of Bartleby Scopes Magazine)
"Guarino's style is simple and consistently powerful, his storytelling a triumph of art over artifice."
Ben Price (Zouch Magazine and Miscellany)
"I found myself intertwined in the lives of each character, not knowing until the end that every one of them held a magical piece to the puzzle we call human nature; the larger picture of which only became clear after reading the final word. This collection of shorts is something that avid fans of storytelling should go out of their way to find."
Jim Idema (screenwriter and author)
