Apparently, the mysterious criminal mastermind Stone - whose identity is unknown - has hired top British alarm system specialist Rick Trevor (Claus Tinney) for his next job - nut the FBI has learned about this, has intercepted Rick Trevor's arrival to Los Angeles and has sent top agent Jerry Cotton (George Nader) to work with Stone's gang undercover in Trevor's stead ... but Cotton soon goes head to head with Stone's sub-boss Bloom (Carl Möhner), especially after Bloom's moll Lana (Silvia Solar) has fallen in love with Cotton.

But Cotton soon learns one or two things about the next coup, like the fact that toxic gasses and a certain machine called The Absorber - a kind of vacuum cleaner, actually - play a part in it, and that a certain art collector called Stanton (Karlheinz Fiege) and a shady lawyer called Tackley (Günther Schramm) are somehow involved - but he is also shadowed by a brunette, Mabel (Marlies Dräger), who doesn't yet fit into the story.

Finally, the big heist: Obviously, an African nation has brought a fortune in diamonds to LA as security for a loan, and while the diamonds are being assessed in a high security room, Bloom and company including Cotton are gassing the assessors then let the absorber pick up the diamonds. The plan works until Cotton presses the alarm to save the assessors from being gassed to death, and soon enough, a three-way fight erupts between Cotton, Bloom's men and Tackley - with Cotton being able to get away with the diamonds while Bloom and company are blown up courtesy of Stone. Soon enough though, Cotton runs into a trap set up by Tackley and Mabel, who have taken Lana hostage and now try to get the diamonds back from him - but instead, Cotton manages to drop Tackley at the next police station, free Lana, and use Mabel as bait for Stone - who to noone's real surprise only now turns out to be Stanton, with Mabel being his sister.

Mabel and Stanton make a desperate escape attempt by boyt, with Cotton close behind, and in the fight that ensues, Mabel accidently shoots her brother, then gives herself up.


The plot of this film is of course extremely far fetched and - in all of the movie's simplicity - a tad over-complicated - yet apart from that, Death and Diamonds is a rather compact crime/action movie ... and unfortunately, it's just that, it's competently directed but lacks any inventiveness Reinl often puts into his films, it's a bit cheesy but lacks the camp aspects of earlier entries into the Jerry Cotton series, and it virtually lack anything to remember it by. This all doesn't make Death and Diamonds a bad film of course, just a tad too unremarkable and average to be worth the time and money.
