Can Everton Jones discover how his father stole Emperor Bokassa's diamonds and where he hid them, before the world and his brother get there first?
Everton Jones is in London to see James Stevens, his father’s solicitor. A father who disappeared nineteen years ago. But not before leaving $300,000 in cash and an envelope addressed to Everton hidden in a bank box. The envelope contains a diamond ring, once owned by Emperor Bokassa, and a grigri, an African charm to protect him from demons. James Stevens neglects to tell him about the money.
When it comes to light that Everton’s father is wanted by the Central African Government for stealing a fortune in diamonds, James comes clean and, along with a growing cast of colourful new friends, Everton romps through the London gay scene trying to uncover his father’s past as one of Bokassa’s henchmen (his “Apostles”), how he stole the diamonds and where he hid them.
Word gets out that Everton’s father had a son, and the world and his brother come calling, MI6, the French DGSE, the Central African Government and all the remaining Apostles. The latter get tangled in a gang war and start getting themselves killed.
Can Everton outlive them, to become the Last Apostle and inherit the fortune hidden by Bokassa twenty six years earlier?
