The Final Cut by Catherine Coulter and J.T. Ellison

The Final CutBook Description:
Scotland Yard’s new chief inspector Nicholas Drummond is on the first flight to New York when he learns his colleague, Elaine York, the "minder" of the Crown Jewels for the "Jewel of the Lion" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was found murdered. Then the centerpiece of the exhibit, the infamous Koh-i-Noor Diamond, is stolen from the Queen Mother’s crown. Drummond, American-born but raised in the UK, is a dark, dangerous, fast-rising star in the Yard who never backs down. And this case is no exception.
Special Agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich from Coulter’s bestselling FBI series don’t hesitate to help Drummond find the cunning international thief known as the Fox. Nonstop action and high stakes intensify as the chase gets deadly. The Fox will stop at nothing to deliver the Koh-i-Noor to the man who believes in its deadly prophecy.  Nicholas Drummond, along with his partner, FBI Special Agent Mike Caine, lay it on the line to retrieve the diamond for Queen and country.

My Thoughts:
Awesome book!  When he found out Elaine, had been murdered, Nicholas was on the first flight to New York.  She was his friend, colleague, and more, so against orders he is going to find answers.  His uncle is head of security for the museum where Elaine was working and the Diamond from the Crown Jewels has been stolen.  Dillon and Lacey were in New York when everything happens and now they are on the case as well.  Finding the Fox is his first mission to find answers!
I loved Nicholas from the start.  His dropping everything to go against orders and investigate Elaine's murder was what people want in a friend.  He is so certain about Elaine that it is just wonderful.  No matter what everyone else believes or the evidence points to, he knows Elaine.  The back story of the diamonds is interesting and I love the story line. It was so great to see Dillon and Sherlock again.  Michaela is a great addition and I can't wait to see where the stories go from here with her.
I rate this a 4/5.  Such a good read and cannot wait to read more!
