The Emerald Casket: the billionaire series book 2

The Billionaire Series, Book Two

Richard Newsome

What do you do when you’re a billionaire, you’re thirteen and you’ve just discovered your family tree goes back a thousand years to a pact made by three brothers to carry three caskets to three secret locations and to protect them for centuries to come?

What do you do when you know a bloodthirsty criminal holds the contents of one of those caskets and will stop at nothing to discover the others?

Gerald, Sam and Ruby fly to India in Gerald’s private jet for a holiday at the home of Alisha Gupta, looking forward to getting away from the exhausting business of stolen gems, bejewelled caskets, thieves and bumbling police officers. But their holiday soon turns to a desperate quest to outwit a deadly cult, and to beat Mason Green to the Emerald Casket in a fast-paced race against time and tide.

With all the suspense, humour and twists and turns of The Billionaire’s Curse, The Emerald Casket will delight readers waiting for the sequel and send new readers clamouring for the first book of the Billionaire series.
