Publisher's Summary

Kate Blackwell is the symbol of success, the beautiful woman who parlayed her inheritance into an international conglomerate. Winner of a unique position among the wealthy and world-renowned, she is also a survivor as indomitable as her father, who returned from the edge of death to wrench a fortune in diamonds from the hard South African soil. Kate surveys the family she has manipulated, dominated and loved; the fair and the grotesque, the mad and the mild, the good and the evil - her winnings in life. Is she the master of the game?
Sidney Sheldon was a masterful storyteller, who during his lifetime penned over 200 television scripts, 25 major motion pictures, six Broadway plays, and 17 novels, including The Naked Face, The Other Side of Midnight, The Sands of Time, Memories of Midnight, and The Stars Shine Down, together selling over 300 million copies, making him one of the world's most prolific authors.

Narrator was terrible

Would you try another book written by Sidney Sheldon or narrated by Shannon Engemann?

Would like to listen to this story and others by the author but NOT BY THIS NARRATOR. Narrator rushed and as a result little pauses or drama. Was so off-putting I couldn't listen any more.

What will your next listen be?

Not sure

What didn’t you like about Shannon Engemann’s performance?

Felt like the reading was rushed, little in the way of pauses, Drama and accents were poor. Very off-putting.

Terrific story. Awful narrator.

The story line is fast moving & very interesting. However, this has to be the worst narrative I have ever listened to. There are pauses in all the wrong places & this took a while to get used to. Nothing wrong with the readers voice just the way the book was read aloud. Never heard anything as bad before & hope this is just a one off.
Still the book is very good. I got to know & understand the characters. If you can overlook the narration it still is a good tale.
