Publisher's Summary

Harry Stanford, one of the world's wealthiest man, dies mysteriously while cruising his yacht along the rugged coast of Corsica. Immediately following Stanford's funeral in Boston, a lovely young woman identifies herself as the tycoon's daughter and heir to a share of his estate. When the well-respected Stanford family looks into the identity of the unexpected heiress, they uncover a world of blackmail, drugs, and murder that leads them through the Italian Riviera, the fashion salons of Paris and New York, and the social register of Florida's Hobe Sound. Actor David Ackroyd narrates Sidney Sheldon's masterful series of events that lead to an explosive and surprise ending.

FANTASTIC!!

This was a compelling tale, that left you asking for more at the end of each chapter. Filled with suspence and a clever uniqueness, as does all Sheldons books. He is a wonderful storyteller. I would highly recommend all of his writtings.

Great book!! Hated the narrator.

His voice grated on me. Sounded like he was talking from inside a box. I almost got used to it by the time it was over.
