Louella Nelson about this book: Emerald Fortune takes disgraced ex-agent Mickey Stone from the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles and the secret lairs of gem traders, to upper-crust London, where he duels with a beautiful widow for control of his most important and dangerous mission: finding the missing million-dollar emerald that cost him his marriage, his career, his joy for life. He needs Laura's contacts and financing, but he doesn't need this deeply disturbing attraction he feels as they race from the dangerous back-alleys of culturally-rich New Orleans to the mountains and yacht harbors of Southern California.
I was originally inspired to write Emerald Fortune because of my fascination with the intrigues and dangers of the gem business. Based on my travels, I drew on research at the world-famous Biltmore Hotel and the surrounding Jewelry Mart in Los Angeles, trips to writers conventions in London and New Orleans, and vacations in the mountains of Big Bear, California.
One reviewer kindly said of my writing, "Nelson is a master story-teller."
