Recovery Of A Priceless Diamond
29 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sabrina,Kelly and Kris help recover a priceless diamond and return it to its rightful owner in Diamond in the Rough.

Two men take legendary jewel thief Freddie "The Fox" Brander prisoner and demand that he reveal the whereabouts of a priceless diamond. He escapes, and seeks the Charlie's female and sexy private investigators' help to retrieve the stolen gem from a wealthy Arab and return it to a museum. He admits that he is looking for an exciting ending for his autobiography. They travel to a Caribbean island; where Freddie and Sabrina pose as a snooty lord and lady, with Kelly as their secretary. The men who had nabbed Freddie follow them and observe their every action. In order to get Kelly into Faris Salim's house, Bosley spreads a rumor about his secretary so that she will be let go. Freddie then fires Kelly in front of Salim at a restaurant; he quickly hires her. Kris "selflessly" makes a play for Salim's hunky son Ali, a car fanatic who disapproves of his father's ways. Salim invites Freddie and Sabrina to his birthday party, where they feign boredom so that he will show off the diamond. They furtively take photographs and notes about the various security measures; including guard dogs; security monitors; an alarm that is triggered if anyone makes contact with the floor; and a snake inside the glass case. Ali observes Kris's actions and realizes that she is planning to steal the diamond. She reveals her true motives, and asks him not to give them away. The Angels drug the dogs, and Kelly distracts the man on duty by dancing with him. Freddie takes ill and cannot go through with his part of the heist. Freddie's rivals approach him at gunpoint. Sabrina uses a blowtorch to cut through the bars surrounding the window, and Kris goes into the room on a rope and hangs above the diamond. She sticks a piece of metal into the case to distract the snake while she snares the diamond. Salim's right-hand man sees them running across the lawn, but Kelly steals his sub-automatic machine gun so that she can make her getaway. Ali comes to Freddie's rescue and kisses Kris goodbye before the Angels flee.

This episode is set into another exotic location - the Caribbean - just like the first episode - Hawaii.While the plot is decent,we get an original and refreshing location that will look good for the viewers aesthetically especially with since there are many scenes that are filled with beautiful and sexy bodies.Also,the action is also entertaining and worth the view.
