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...

    "I second the "Disaster" comment"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is the best sort of book to read in paperback on an airplane. If it's left behind, it won't matter. No one would miss the writing and the story is one we've all read before. The story recalls any of twenty other books written - and written better - by anyone from Jeffrey Archer to Danielle Steele. No one expects Sheldon to be dense, provocative, or philosophical. Readers do, however, expect a Sheldon book to be accurate and well-plotted enough to lead readers to suspend disbelief, and never look back. A Sheldon book is written to convey to readers a palpable degree of tension, and an engrossing story. This book is none of these. I agree with the other reviewer that the author seems not to have done enough research into any of the subjects he/she was writing about. This is a superficial read with a contrived plot and forgettable characters. I wouldn't bother.


    Has Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Reading this has certainly turned me off anything co-written by Tilly Bagshawe.

    "Yuk, I wish I could give -stars"

    There is not a character here I can stand. No one I would waste my time with. Just weird motivations for actions that I just can't relate to at all. Glad I got it on sale.

    "Disaster!"

    Totally disappointing! No consistency, no logic, no follow ups on some would-be-good ideas; it seems like the author did not do his homework and demonstrated very poor knowledge of almost all of the subjects he was writing about; his vocabulary is very poor too; some ideas that could have developed into interesting plots had never been elaborated. All in all the novel gives an impression of being written by an amateur, or by a professional who's either become overly confident and lazy, or impotent... In brief, this book is a waste of time and money

    Good Story, not great, but good. I won't listen again, but it was worth the money.

    "Thouroughly Enjoyable"

    Having rated Master of the Game as my favourite book by Sidney Sheldon, I found this to be a well constructed sequal. I enjoyed every minute of it!

    "Good job"

    It's been so long since I've heard anything from Sheldon. It was a pleasant experience..not quite "Master of the Game", but that's just my opinion. This was well worth the listen.

    Good story. I liked the story and the suspense. The narator was okay but not great.

    "Mistress of the Game/Sidney Sheldon"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game to be better than the print version?

    No, not at all, Part 2 is a repeat of Part 1, so I'm waiting for Part 2. I read these books many years ago and they were great, now I'm really unhappy.


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

    Yes, I already have.


    What does Karen Ziemba bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not much.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Part 2 would have been great, now I have to wait for you to record it. I'm very unhappy.


    Any additional comments?

    Send part 2 as soon as possible, please.
