Publisher's Summary

Jamie McGregor founded a family empire on diamonds stolen from South Africa - and a ruthless need for revenge. As control of McGregor's fortune falls into the capable hands of his granddaughter Kate, his business expands into a worldwide conglomerate. The cunning Kate proves herself a true master, using her own son and granddaughters as pawns in a game where the stakes are bigger than life or death. Roddy McDowall captures the suspense and surprise in this story of lust for wealth and power - and the price that people pay to get it. This title is also available in Spanish as El Amo del Juego.

Terrible Abridgement

I am not the type of person that is pretty easy to please so I rarely complain or write negative reviews. However, in this situation I feel it is necessary to warn potential buyers.

I have read and enjoyed Master of the Game many times in the past. To this day it is one of my favorite novels. Sadly, this abridged version of the story completely brutalizes both the plot and character development of an excellent story. Many major events, conversations, and even characters were cut out of whole parts of the novel. In many situations the conversations that were omitted were later referenced. This would have created a great deal of confusion for me if I had not read the book.

If you are a fan of this novel and simply want a quick recap or summary of the main events then this book might suit you. I would recommend that Sidney Sheldon fans that have never read Master of the Game not waste their time or money on this horrible abridgment.

Not Worth it- Too Abridged

The book covers several generations of a family in less than 3 hours. Missing important plot details.
