Publisher's Summary

This number-one New York Times best-selling novel is Sidney Sheldon at his best...a novel complete with tortured romantic entanglements, reverses of fortune, thrilling suspense, and ultimate justice.
In Paris, in Washington, and in Greece in a fabulous villa, an innocent American becomes a bewildered, horror-stricken pawn in a game of vengeance and betrayal. She is Catherine Douglas, a woman caught in a web of four lives intertwined by passion as her handsome husband pursues an incredibly beautiful film star...and as Constantin Demeris, a legendary Greek tycoon, tightens the strands that control them all.

Forget the movie. Read the book.

I saw this movie back in 1977. Thought it was great but it made me want to read the book. The book was better. Fast forward 35 years and there's an audiobook. Why not and guess what, the audiobook was even better than the print copy! and that made me want to go back and watch the movie again. This is where the love story ends. Watching the movie today after listening to the book, was pathetic.
Steven Pacey's reading is great and Sidney Sheldon's story holds up. It kept me awake until 5am.

Entertaining

I had good memories from having read this book a long time ago. This time the plot seemed a little too much convenient at times, and more linear and obvious than I remembered. The narrator was very good, not excellent, but overall it was an enjoyable experience. Not all readings are masterpieces, right?

The danger creeps up on you.

I like all books by this author and was especially excited when I found more titles available on audible. This story is not on like a lot of Sidney Sheldon's books in that it has a lot of twists and turns. It is a little less graphic in its description of violent scenes. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters and even started to to empathise with the antagonist. I like the way he is able to get you to see what goes on in the minds of all the characters. It's really interesting read if you like adventure. The only thing I would like to add is that it could be a little more descriptive of the outfits Noelle wore during grand occasions. You sort of had an idea but not a great picture of everything. I would strongly recommend that you never cross Constantine Demires 😨😰
