Summary: This book is concise and informative, with an overview of basic facts about the Hope Diamond, it's history and owners. Anyone with an unreasonable fear of the Hope Diamond will be particularly interested in the fact that Cartier manufactured the "curse" to sell the diamond based on a novel, "The Moonstone." "Blue Mystery" is an excellent precursor to "Queen of Diamonds", a fascinating autobiography of Evalyn Walsh McLean, the last private owner of the Hope Diamond.
