Publisher's Summary

Paris, Washington, a peaceful Midwestern campus, and a fabulous villa in Greece are all part of a terrifying web of treachery. These diverse locales serve as the backdrop for a ruthless trio - a beautiful film star, a legendary Greek tycoon, and a womanizing international adventurer - to wage a desperate war of vengeance and betrayal, love and lust, life and death. The pawn in this deadly game is Catherine Douglas, an innocent American girl. Jenny Agutter, star of theater, film and television, narrates this suspenseful and unforgettable drama.

    I love to listen and read books. Harry Bosch is my number one. I'm a wannabe detective. I love Audible!

    "Mr Sheldon does not Disappoint"
    What made the experience of listening to The Other Side of Midnight the most enjoyable?

    The narration is exquisite. Switching between the French, German , Greek American accents takes great skill and Steven Pacy has mastery over them all.

    The story line is gripping.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Other Side of Midnight?

    The development of the two storylines which were bound to be merged kept me in eager anticipation of how/when the characters' paths would eventually collide.

    And of course the ending was magnificent!


    Which character – as performed by Steven Pacey – was your favorite?

    All the characters were adequately covered


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Vengeance doesn't always pay.

    I've been reading Reacher and Bosch for the past few months. I needed a break. I had read a lot of Sidney Sheldon a long time ago. I realized I had read this but had mostly forgotten. Well written and narration was good too. Enjoyed the story and liked a break from my usual.

    "Best Book by Sheldon you can Buy from Audible"

    The only better Sheldon book than this is "A Stranger in the Mirror," and Audible hasn't got it.
    So this is his best work that Audible has.
    Sheldon does what John D. MacDonald also excelled at-drawing highly unlikable characters and filling you with desire to see how low they can sink into the quagmire of human depravity.
    Noe!l Page is a spoilt French girl. She runs away from an arrangement her father made for her-straight into the arms of the worst sort of man a girl can find.
    Larry Douglas is a beast no one girl can tame.
    Meantime, Katherine Alexander is a Chicago beauty and intellectual. But she is an emotional cripple.
    She finds the right man in Washington, DC-then leaves him in a minute when she meets Larry Douglas.
    But Noe!l Page has been keeping notes on Larry, no matter that he's across the Atlantic, and she has a plan for him.
    The narration is terrific. The reader is an Englishman with a rare gift for voices.
    I am particularly impressed that he can do American accents-usually a reach for even great British actors.
    This is a very adult book. As in every Sheldon book, the sex is rendered in gasping (unrealistic) detail.
    It travels effortlessly from Chicago to France, back to the States, then to a frenetic finish in Greece.
    The time is before, during and just after World War II, a time frame Sheldon made his own in "Stranger in the Mirror," as well as this book.

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "Culture Shlock"

    I am not a woman. I'm thinking you should be to enjoy this book. Instead, I studied it. See, I was expecting a puzzling murder mystery, what I got, I think, was a romance novel. Um, since I've never before experienced a romance novel - well this is what I was told they're supposed to be like, and so.... once starting it I decided to finish it so that I could claim an open-minded tour through a different culture.

    Tour's over, I shall not return.

    What I learned was that sex drives everything except when longing for sex is in charge. That the most successful people in the world are driven by their sexual fantasies and controlled by them. And that absolute female beauty might be the same thing as absolute power... Since absolute power corrupts... absolutely - we'll you sort of get the story arc here, right?

    The reader was as good as the novel. Perhaps that is Steven Pacey's talent, and so I shall not avoid him as a result of this experience. Neither will I give him more than an additional strike.

    Any additional comments?

    I read this book in the 1980's and loved it but for some reason just wasn't as much into it this time.

    "Cost less than $10.00"

    This book wasn't worth a credit, but it was cheap and the American accents were good for a laugh.
