      Black assembles a new gang and boards a flight to Africa, where things are never as simple as they seem, and where he’s never set foot. Everybody wants to get their hands on the diamonds: the corrupt bank manager, an arms dealer suffering from suppurating psoriasis and a gang of mercenaries led by Viktor Ouliakov, on holiday from Chechen.
