Great addition to the series!User Review - Christianbook.com
The Great Mogul Diamond was another great book in this series. I found myself dreading the end because I knew that meant I was done with the series … at least until the next book comes out. The spiritual themes really come into play more fully in this book, and it was neat to see the characters wrestling with their decisions and thinking of how their decisions impacted others. I appreciate growth and maturity in characters throughout books/series, so this was nice to see—especially as this book is geared toward a juvenile / middle grade audience. As with the rest of the series, the action is fast-paced and the story moves along pretty quickly. I loved the animation/cartoon sketches in this book … possibly more than in the others. Maybe I've just gotten used to how they're intermingled throughout? This is a great series for resistant readers. The books are action-packed so the plot moves along pretty quickly, which is key for hooking those non-readers! Parts of the stories are a bit "dark and twisty" but I think that upper elementary and middle school students will thoroughly enjoy them. Good grief, I'm way past that age and I LOVED them! I'm truly looking forward to more books by this author and highly recommend this series! (4 stars)

The Great Mogul Diamond is the third book in the Dopple Ganger Series. In this adventure, Muzz Elliot has been blackmailed and she, Sadie, and Saskia travel to France to clear her name. However, they face trouble and danger on the way. First, a woman is drugged and thrown into a closet wearing Muzz Elliot’s coat and hat. Then, their stewart disappears and lastly, the three are drugged and Sadie is kidnapped. Meanwhile, Dorcas and Erik travel by car to France to help Muzz Elliot and the twins, however, they too face danger that slows them down. While on the road, a man tries to blow their car up, but they are able to escape. Unfortunately, they are found and kidnapped. After they are kidnapped, they find help in surprising places and are able to escape their way into France where they reach Muzz Elliot and Saskia. After Dorcas and Erik arrive in France, the second part of the blackmail plot is unveiled. Sadie’s kidnappers have demanded that they steal the Great Mogul Diamond that is to be auctioned off or Sadie dies. In an attempt to rescue Sadie without stealing the diamond, Dorcas is caught, but not before Erik has discovered of Dorcas’s abduction. Now, it is up to Erik, Muzz Elliot, and Saskia to pull the heist of a lifetime, discover who is behind this elaborate blackmail scheme, and free Sadie and Dorcas before they are killed. Like G.P. Taylor’s first two book of this series, this is a good book of mystery and suspense geared to youth readers.
