The Diamond Dakota Mystery Book Description:

This extraordinary true tale follows the disappearance of more than 20 million dollars worth of precious diamonds during World War II. In 1942, as the Japanese army advanced on Java, two wealthy businessmen entrusted a Russian aviator, Captain Ivan Smirnoff, with a small, mysteriously-unmarked package, to be delivered to a businessman in Sydney. The plane was attacked during a Japanese air raid and under heavy fire, but Smirnoff miraculously landed the badly damaged plane on an isolated beach on Java's far northwest coast. A few weeks later, Jack Palmer stumbled across the lost package—containing precious diamonds—among the plane's wreckage. Nicknamed "Diamond Jack," Palmer and two others were charged with theft of the diamonds. This true adventure follows the diamonds as they are lost, found, and lost again.
