Publisher's Summary

Sidney Sheldon introduced the glamorous, scheming Blackwell family and its unforgettable matriarch, Kate Blackwell, in his worldwide best seller Master of the Game. Now a generation has passed, and as the world has changed, so too has America's own royal family. Yet the intervening years have not lessened the Blackwells' drama or talent for manipulation, domination, and passion.

Though Kate is long gone, the children of her beloved granddaughters, Eve and Alexandra, battle to carry on her powerful legacy. Each is determined to control Kruger-Brent, Ltd., the multibillion-dollar international corporation with holdings in diverse industries around the globe. But only one can reign supreme. . . . Lexi Templeton is a ruthless competitor with the brains and beauty to match. Raised by her psychiatrist father, Lexi burns to follow in her great-grandmother's footsteps and become her own Mistress of the Game. She is not alone in her ambitions. Her handsome and nefarious cousin, Max Webster, the son of Eve, will stop at nothing to own the prize of Kruger-Brent. Driven by hatred, jealousy, and blinding devotion to his bitter and twisted mother, he will seduce, betray, and even kill to succeed. And there is another player with plans of his own: a little-known descendant of Kate's great-grandfather. Growing up in poverty in Aberdeen, Scotland, handsome and cunning Gabriel McGregor is determined to fulfill his destiny . . a quest that will lead him deep into the heart of the Kruger-Brent empire.

In a family rife with secrets - murder, hidden identities, perversions - and a depraved sense of honor, the player who wins the game may be the only one who will survive.

Full of the late master's trademark elements - remarkable characters, dazzling plotting, and a page-turning narrative style - this sizzling sequel vividly captures the master's voice and irresistible magic. Vintage Sheldon, Mistress of the Game will enthrall loyal fans and introduce his enduring...

    Story
    "Sidney would turn over in his grave."
    What would have made Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game better?

    I read Master of the Game years ago and literally could not put the book down. I stayed up all night and read it. This book by Tilly Bagshawe is trash. The characters are petty and irredeemably broken, psychotic, sociopathic, neurotic. The story was anarchistic. The writing is awful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sidney Sheldon and Tilly Bagshawe again?

    Not anything by Tilly Bagshawe. I used to read quite a bit of Sidney.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She read too fast, like she was in a terrible hurry to get through the terrible writing. I guess I don't blame her.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game?

    The rape and murder scene in South Africa was totally unnecessary. Obviously it was the only thing the author could think of to get her two heroes together. Actually I thought I was listening to an abridged version of the book, since there was really no development of much of anything, just jumping from one fortune made and lost to the next.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time.

    "Excellant! Sheldon does it again."
    What did you love best about Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game?

    Sydney Sheldon is one of my favorite authors. He keeps you captivated.
    This book is no different. I love his writing style. I haven't finished the book yet due to my busy schedule so I can't honestly give a favorite part yet. But I have enjoyed what I have listened to so far.
