Summary

Elizabeth Roffe, only child of one of the world's richest men, has it all; beauty, intelligence, innocence and youth. But when her father dies, she discovers that she has inherited not only his vast pharmaceutical company, with offices and factories all over the world, but also an unspeakable terror that threatens to destroy the business. As she struggles to save the company that took her family four generations to build, she realizes that she herself is the target of an unknown assassin.

Master storyteller Sidney Sheldon has crafted a tale rich in love, suspense, and financial intrigue on three continents.

The reader did not pause sufficiently between para

The reader did not pause sufficiently between paragraphs for the listener to recognise the chages in the plot.

Not the best book

Reader rushed on without any explanation of the story. Me and my husband were confused with the story line a few times. I wouldn't recommend.

Awful, I want my credit back.

I've read this book more than once, alot of it was left out. Just pathetic. I thought audible was supposed to be the whole version of the story. Boy was I completely mistaken. Y'all need to be more careful when passing off crap like this, sad...

I disappointing at best.

Bad enough the story was predictable, but the actor Who was “reading“ the story sounded forced and clipped. I was tempted to stop listening several times.

OVER ABRIDGED! Book lost great deal of impact

I read this book almost 40 years ago and I decided to read (listen) to it again. As I listened to the book it was suddenly finished. And I realized that something was wrong. I had bought the abridged version on audible. I got the book from the library and compared to the audible version. Dismal comparision. The abridged version is a dreadful version of a great early writing of Sidney Sheldon. I reread the book and it was just as good as it had been years earlier. This abridged version is pathetic. I don't know who is responsible for that, but I will be more careful.

Savored the Suspense

Sidney Sheldon is one of my favorite authors. I didn't want this story to end. I savored the suspense until the last minute! The narration was great!
