Jennifer's strength and beauty win the love of two powerful men but earn her the implacable hatred of a third. Adam Warner, man of integrity, born to lead his country, is tied by honor and obligation to his wife. Michael Moretti, compelling Mafia boss, nearly destroys Jennifer's career before it begins. Robert DiSilva, the DA who fought his way to the top, neither forgets nor forgives those who cross him. This title is also available in Spanish as Venganza de Angeles.

"Sheldon's best by far...tense, exciting courtroom drama...poignant love story...suspense and terror." (Dallas Morning News)
Love to read and audible is a great way to do that almost any place. Retired Computer Analyst living on the beach.
A Good Book
A better reader that did not stop for 45 seconds between words and paragraphs. More than once I turn my phone on and off thinking it had stopped working.
I read this book years and years (and years) ago and enjoyed revisiting it in audio version. I would recommended it for its fast pace and interesting (although pretty predictable) story lines.
Takes you on a pretty interesting ride, but the end sucks... rather ride somewhere else.
Just depressing most of the way through... kept hoping it would be worth it.
Riveted, but depressed.
this was a fun and entertaining ride

I only listen when I am driving
I love this story. I wanted a drama with a touch of romance. This delivered. The narration was very good but the long pauses and silences were very distracting. I kept having to see if my device had stopped only to learn they inserted an unusually long pause in the production. If you get past that then I highly recommend this book.
Not really, but I read it years ago
Several, check my library
Remove chapter 48, which is repeated twice
"A thrilling read"
Lorelei King's portrayal of all the characters was so spot on you could see their facial expressions in your mind. The book had several twists and turns and gave you so much insight in to the height of corruption in the judicial system, and in to the way organized crime works.
I think I liked Michael Moretti. The power he had is rather intoxicating.
I'd say Michael Moreti's goons Vito, Salvetore and Karlala. They gave the book so much comedy.
Yes but if I was to tell you, I'd give the game away. suffice it to say that it happened near the end two the two major characters.
Read this book. you won't regret it but I'll warn you, don't read it if you can't deal with the violence, suspence and danger involved.
"The Cosa Nostra...."
Lorelei King brought Sidney Sheldon's book to life wonderfully for me. I didn't have any problem finishing it. I think that Sidney Sheldon has a deft hand at painting his picture with words, he described several foreign cities that I have yet to visit in concise but evocative detail, putting me right into the scene. I finally looked Lorelei King up on the internet and now I understand why she has such good diction, and such accurate mimicry - she's an American born British actress - I could listen to her reciting the phone book and still enjoy it.
"struggled to finish"
Did not enjoy voice of narrator will try taster next time I purchase a book
I love Sidney Sheldons books .... And this Did not disappoint ...... Twists and turns and I live the story line
