Kate Blackwell - her dynasty - S. Africa diamonds to Wall St. -

Kate Blackwell is one of the richest and most powerful women in the world. She is an enigma, a woman surrounded by a thousand unanswered questions. Her father was a diamond prospector who struck it rich beyond his wildest dreams. Her mother was the daughter of a crooked Afrikaaner merchant. Her conception was itself an act of hate-filled vengeance. At the extravagent celebrations of her ninetieth birthday, there are toasts from a Supreme Court Judge and a telegram from the White House. And for Kate there are ghosts, ghosts of absent friends and of enemies. Ghosts from a life of blackmail and murder. Ghosts from an empire spawned by naked ambition!

Epigraph
"And hence one master-passion in the breast, 
Like Aaron's serpent, swallows up the rest."
~ Alexander Pope,
Essay on Man Epistle II
"Diamonds resist blows to such an extent that an iron hammer may be split in two and even the anvil itself may be displaced. this invincible force, which defies Nature's two most violent forces, iron and fire, can be broken by ram's blood. but it must be steeped in blood that is fresh and warm and, even so, many blows are needed."
~ Pliny the Elder
