BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – September 29, 2022 – Zarah, a Filipino-American multi-hyphenate entertainer who performed with Goo Goo Dolls and hosted “B InTune TV” in 2005, announces the release of her first-in-series crime thriller Diamonds are For Cocktails with the publishing house E & R Publishers in New York, hitting the bookstores everywhere on October 27, 2022.
Zarah, who once attended galas and met with Prince Albert II in Monaco, a billionaire’s playground, became heavily inspired. Diamonds are For Cocktails is a fascinating tale of an adopted Monégasque diamond heiress who, despite the wealth and power, is still haunted by her past. The book details about the killer’s unraveling mysterious crimes investigated by the FBI and the allure that attracts ordinary people to the extraordinary, which begs the question — can money really buy you everything?
A riveting plot that promises intrigue and surprise, Diamonds are For Cocktails explores the human-interest side of the heiress’ unbreakable bond with her childhood friend and her emotional journey back to life. A subject matter that Zarah herself knows all too well, after losing her late husband Eugene Maillard, once a Grammy executive whose life’s work was about championing children’s cause, during the COVID-19 pandemic. She struggled to complete her book and screenplay, but is now making headway as she gains positive reviews and plans “The Diamonds are For Cocktails VIP Tour with a Cause” in elegant cities to help celebrate and support youth and children around the world in diverse communities, including those who are affected from the war in Ukraine partnering with organizations of similar causes.
Imagine you had all money in the world.
Only to get haunted by your dark past.
An adopted Monégasque diamond heiress becomes the envy of all.
Her only refuge is her childhood companion in a world of excess and indulgence.
Victims mysteriously disappear and nobody knows who’s next; FBI is on a hunt.
Wealth. Glamour. Privilege. Power. Murder. French Riviera.
Welcome to the world of Camille and James.

Mysteries are to be uncovered, but for readers, it’s all part of the escapade – one that doesn’t require renting a yacht.” — Stephanie Nelasco, Fox News

“Writing Diamonds are For Cocktails has allowed me to enter into a life-saving world of fantasy and illusion. When reading the book, I had just written, it was like I was watching a movie; I couldn’t look away.” — Zarah, Author of Diamonds are For Cocktails
