A Lack Of Political Will by Yvonne Crowe. The fast paced plot follows the trail of the diamonds, from their inception in the dangerous opencast mines of Angola, where they are smuggled out to Sierra Leone, and then through Antwerp to Israel. Here they are sold to pay for the arms that the dictators of these corrupt African nations purchase from the cabal, to keep their countries destabilized, as well as perpetuating the conflict in the Middle East.
As Colette endeavors to escape from Basil, who is determined if he cannot have her no-one else will, she moves to The Hamptons, where she meets an architect Emile, and a romance develops. This puts her life in danger, not only from her jealous, possessive ex-husband, but also from the cabal, as Basil becomes unhinged in his quest for revenge on Colette. As the threat looms over her and she suffers actual harm at Basil’s hands, will Emile’s influential uncle step in to protect Colette? Or will her best friend’s husband, Lloyd, a professor of Middle Eastern Studies at Cambridge University, who was a senior officer in clandestine operations with the CIA, be able to save her from Basil and the Cabal?

The Magdalene Conspiracy by Yvonne Crowe. In the early history of the church, there is no more mysterious or controversial figure than Mary Magdalene. What was her real place in the life of Jesus Christ? After his death and resurrection, where did Mary Magdalene go? Was it to the South of France as some have claimed? And if so, what was she doing there? Two thousand years later, the answers are finally about to be revealed – with explosive consequences.
In Rome, someone has crucified an innocent woman and hung a sign around her neck reading ‘The Magdalene Whore’. Soon afterwards a second murder is discovered and a child is abducted – and the crime is linked back to the secretive Knights of Malta. Nicolina, an ambitious journalist in Rome, is determined to find out what is behind these bizarre killings – and win herself a Pulitzer Prize. She is reluctantly helped in her quest by Edoardo, a Vatican Priest from one of the Ancients of Venice families. But does he have a connection with Mary Magdalene himself? Who is the Cardinal? And what is his connection to the Knights of Malta and the Monastery of St Gerard? Read more on Amazon. If the truth is ever revealed, it will rock the foundations of the Roman Catholic Church.
