The newly elected president decides he wants to develop a better relationship with countries of the old cold war, Romania especially. Instead of a trained person for the ambassador job, he picks a teacher from a Kansas school, who specializes in that area in her studies. He read an article she had written and since what she had written was also his views, he asks her to take the job. At first she declines because of her family and her husband's commitments to his patients (he is a doctor), but after he dies in a mysterious car accident, she decides to take the job. There are many who don't like the idea of Romania and the U.S. getting buddy buddy and a secret group from around the world, including those in the U.S., work to sabotage the presidents efforts. They hire an assassin, who has never been defeated to take out several key people. Mary Ashley, the ambassador, is turning out to be quite successful at her job, and is the target of an assassination. She doesn't know who to trust. This was the first Sydney Sheldon book I ever read. I had my appendix removed at age 33 and my colleagues from work gave me a book to pass time. It was what the doctor order: superficial, mindless but additively fun.

I have always been a fan of his books since i first read "if tomorrow comes" and he never ceaze to amaze me. At 13 it may b difficult to underdtand the political sense in this book,but the overall story is great.

This one took a bit to get going and once it did, it was written in true Sheldon style. Although not my fave of his, I would still recommend it. Far better than the new stuff that's out there these days.

I read this book when I was about 13. I didn't understand most of it, especially the politics, how everything fit together. Nonetheless, it was exciting, and I enjoyed reading it. Now I am 16 and a few weeks ago, I found my tattered copy and reread it. And now I understand that the book I read three years ago and three weeks ago were two completely different works in terms of how I perceived it. Simply put, it was a thousand times better the second time around. I fully understood even the most insignificant details and storylines, was touched by most of them and came to admire the intricacy. Sheldon leaves no loose ends hanging, and with simple, yet understandable, characters the story truly comes alive. Not having any particular respect for the thriller genre, I can honestly call this book a notable and admirable exception.

It was an okay book compared to his other books. It was a little more predictable and not as exciting. But i guess it was better than a lot of other books out there. Sheldon is the best author ever!

I read this book roughly when I was about 15 or 16, I am now 25 and I have been looking for this book to add to my library. I must say this story is both exciting and suspenseful. I reccomend this book for people who like to be entertained by books.

I'm reading this book for English 12. I think it's pretty good and I'm only 1/2 way through. At first, it was boring and now I want to know if Ashley is going to be killed. Hopefully I'll like it and will understand it.
