    One thought on “The Diamond Master”

    1. Short novel which was free to download.I did not enjoy this much The plot was pretty obvious and there was no real detection involved.Am I alone in finding the attempts to render German English American just as demeaning and insulting as the casual or overt racism often found in novels of this period Only of real interest to Futrelle completists.

    2. Random find, a freebie, so sure, why not Turns out this was a pleasant surprise, nice short mystery Really nice premise, a treat of too many diamonds, fairly reasonable resolution The first half of the story fun than the last, but the best thing about this novella was its charm Old, but not dated in a tedious way, the writing was very enjoyable plus it was good to be reminded that once upon a time mysteries were solved without all the advantages of modern technology Fun quick read of a bygone e [...]

    3. A diamond is delivered to a jeweller in quite an unusual manner and he soon finds out that four other jewellers received similar packages There s then a quest to find out the source of these gems and much adventure is involved murder, love, science, engineering, and even homing pigeons

    4. The book begins with a gem merchant being sent, anonymously, a very large and flawless diamond shortly thereafter, he discovers that several of his colleagues received identical gifts The mystery of who sent them is swiftly resolved, and for the rest of the book we are left to wonder where these diamonds which have not been imported, of which there are too many to have smuggled in without attracting attention, and which are unlikely to have come from within the country as the US is not a major d [...]

    5. This book by Jacques Futrelle is a treat to read It was roughly written in the same period of time in which the Sherlock Holmes stories were written No DNA, no fingerprints, but deduction only The story is not very surprising, but nevertheless it contains some surprising elements The writing is entertaining and good I can recommend itThe author Jaques Futrelle died in 1912 on the Titanic.

    6. I am a big fan of Jacques Futrelle s Thinking Machine stories but this short novel wasn t nearly as enjoyable for me The premise is quite intriguing a process is invented to artificially create diamonds but Futrelle doesn t carry out that concept very effectively The cast is divided into two groups The representatives of the Diamond Trust who will be ruined if artificial jewels flood the market, and the young newlyweds who are demanding 100,000,000.00 to destroy the diamond making machine they c [...]

    7. A young self assured businessman shows up and makes a proposition to the top diamond jewelers in New York City He wants them to come up with a 100 million to buy his special diamonds But there is a catch There are no records on where these beautiful, unusual diamonds came from after they checked all shipping logs The mystery continues and then a murder leads them on an even deeper search for the truth Read The Diamond Master by Jacques Futrelle and discover the answer to the riddle The author, M [...]

    8. This novella long ish short story shares a macguffin with F Scott Fitzgerald s Diamond as Big as the Ritz , namely that a sudden glut of diamonds in the world will potentially ruin all those with a vested interest in that market.In Futrelle s version, we have a neat tale of extortion and murder, cops and robbers, in which all ends well for the goodies, and with a cruel twist of irony for the perp.Perhaps a literary exercise than a work of art but it s well done, and diverting enough.

    9. after finishing this novel i found the ending is rather dissapointing oh well but still, in a sweet way, this is a simple mystery novel i have the mistake of reading this after watching the movie blood diamond and well, it makes the reading much interesting with images of a bloodied Leonardo DiCaprio on the background.

    10. Since I am related to the author, Jacques Futrelle, I thought I would read some of his stories This was the first story of his I got the chance to read I am so proud to say that he is my relative This was only one of his multiple works, and I loved every word of it

    11. Interesting short novel I enjoyed most of it, but thought the detectives were rather stupid and the ending was a bit disappointing Good example of a classic mystery I need to read his Thinking Machine novels.

    12. I much prefer Jacques Futrelle s indefatigable thinker, Augustus S F X Van Dusen than any of the characters in The Diamond Master, however the story wasn t too bad.

    13. Okwe know who committed the murder which seemed like a side story , but what about the diamonds The murder gets solved but the main question about the diamonds is left open.

    14. Futrelle never disappoints The basis for this short book may be a bit far fetched, but the writing, plotting, pacing, and characters are pure Futrelle.

    15. InterestingThis is definitely a period piece and interesting The story and the characters reflect the time The ending is rather complex.

    16. Not a bad novel Futrelle s character drawing is sharper than usual and there is action This is his best work aside from the thinking Machine stories.

    17. Not my cup of teaI knew where this was going, and I didn t finish it After confirming how the rouse was operating, I was finished with it It is an interesting story.

    18. Entertains mysteryFun mystery story about the beginning of fake diamonds If man could make a fake diamond that looked real enough would it destroy the diamond market
