eye of the god takes the fascinating history surrounding the Hope Diamond and weaves it together with a present-day plot to steal the jewel from the Smithsonian Institute.
We follow Alex and Isaac Weld, the most lucrative jewel thieves in the world, in their quest to steal the gem, which according to legend was once the eye of a Hindu idol named Rama Sita. When it was stolen in the 17th century, it is said that the idol cursed all those who would possess it. That wont stop the brilliant and ruthless Weld brothers.
However, they are not prepared for Dr. Abigail Mitchell, the beautiful Smithsonian Director, who has her own connection to the Hope Diamond and a deadly secret to keep. Abby committed long ago that she would not serve a god made with human hands, and the eye of the god is no exception. Her desire is not for wealth, but for wisdom. She seeks not power, but restoration.
When the dust settles over the last great adventure of the Hope Diamond, readers will understand the curse that has haunted its legacy is nothing more than the greed of evil men who bring destruction upon themselves. No god chiseled from stone can direct the fates of humankind, nor can it change the course of Gods story.
KateBroomfield, COAge: Under 18Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5This product is not a "Christian book"September 27, 2013KateBroomfield, COAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1This book was a good read. I enjoyed the historical notes and stories in the book. I found them accurate and fascinating. I was disappointed in the lack of Christian morals and values in the book. There was no part in the book that made me feel like this was "Christian fiction." To me, Christian fiction brings God into the book in such a way that He is glorified and part of at least one character's life. This book presented neither.

The author writes well and it was intetesting enough. My problem was it seemed to drag in places and there wasn't enough suspense. One of my main issues is Abby was so intelligent and had such an important job but she was so easily taken in by a life long thief. The book was a clean read but I wouldn't especially call it Christian Fiction.
