KIRKUS REVIEW

The second book appearance of that shiny black stud, Shaft, now prowling among some Hassidim -- the ""Jesuits of the international gem business"" after one Avrim Herzel has disappeared. Herzl has had an alchemical vision which can be translated into new gems -- diamonds, emeralds and rubies. That is if you know how to apply enough pressure and heat. Tidyman certainly does (he scripted The French Connection) so that this streaks, and the ethnic touches are pretty damned funny.
