    Such a disappointment

    I can't believe the number of good reviews because this book was hugely disappointing! The writing style was so simple with the author finding ways to 'tell' the read what was going on instead of the story developing, there was no mystery, and the things happening were not realistic. This is one of the worst books I have ever read!!

    Very Dissappointing.

    I am a Sidney Sheldon fan. But this book was very very dissappointing. It's short, very predictable, contains un necessary vulgarities and obscenities and the plot looks interesting at first but in the end when the main story unfolds, its not anything new or shocking at all. If you are thinking of reading Sheldon for the first time, completely avoid this, try his previous masterpieces, they were great. It looks like he wrote this book in a hurry because he was short on money and just wanted to use his good reputation to make some bucks with this un interesting read. That's just how I felt, not worth the money at all.

    Ouch! Can I get a Refund?

    I bought this book at the bookstore. Remind me to pay attention to reviews! Simple. Predictable. I'm selling my used copy to the first person who offers enough for a cup of coffee.

    Not what I expected

    I was really disappointed with this book. I am a huge fan of Sheldon's other books, but this one was so slow--boring at times and the dialogue between the characters was unrealistic. Its a stinker.

    Disappointing

    I can't believe I actually waited for this book and even finished it! Plot was preditable and slow, characters were one dimensional, and writing style was choppy and simplicitic. Not what I expected from Sheldon.

    Not Up to Par

    This is one of the worst books I have read by Sidney Sheldon. It is certainly not up to par with his other books. It makes me wonder if he even wrote it. The dialogue is 4th grade reading and the plot is poorly constructed. It was very disappointing.
