It provides an interesting young African American female character at a time that our society is re-examining the role of race in our country.

When a famous singer is found dead, murder is suspected, so Robbie Raines decides to investigate in order to locate the dead woman’s famed jewels and catch a killer in Kara L. Amis’s new mystery series for children titled “Death of a Diamond Lady: A Robbie Raines Mystery” (published by Archway Publishing).

Robbie is determined to find out who did it. After befriending the late woman’s family, Robbie discovers the singer’s most valuable gems are hidden and can only be found by solving two mysterious riddles. Using her love of history, and secret visions of famous people who appear to her with clues, Robbie unravels the riddles even as she confronts a frightening “ghost” and sabotage from her school rival.

With assistance from her best pal Stacie, Detective Granger, and even her Aunt Enna, Robbie dodges danger and her parents’ fears to uncover the truth about the death of a dazzling former star.

“It provides an interesting young African American female character at a time that our society is re-examining the role of race in our country,” Amis says of her book, adding that she wants readers “to enjoy a fun little mystery and learn a bit about gems, and some interesting history facts.”
