    Kate Blackwell is the symbol of success, the beautiful woman who parlayed her inheritance into an international conglomerate.

Now the story passes to the next generation. Spanning the decades and picking up exactly where Sidney Sheldon's bestselling Master of the Game finished, Mistress of the Game follows the Blackwell family as they love, lose, scheme and murder through the 80s up until the present day.

    Good narration but the story has no purpose

    Good narration but the story has no purpose and too much negativity. There is no ending as well
