I can not believe that I am this disappointed in a book by Sheldon. The plot was predictable and ridiculous and the ending was just way to happily ever after. I did not connect with any of the characters. This book stunk.

Dana Evans, who made her first appearance in Sidney Sheldon's The Best Laid Plans, is a spunky, good-looking, young Washington TV journalist who's recently returned to the nation's capital from the Balkans, where she adopted a handicapped war orphan who's having trouble adjusting to life in America. But that doesn't keep Dana from following a story all over the world, from Washington to Aspen, Nice, Juneau, Dusseldorf, Rome, Brussels, Moscow, and Siberia. Each of these brief visits is like a postcard--a local landmark or two, an interesting local restaurant (at least in the European venues), and another piece of the puzzle, which has to do with why every member of a venerable, old Washington dynasty has died a violent death in the last year. It seems strange that in a media-savvy city like Washington, no one but Dana has noticed there's a pattern in the rapid extinction of the Winthrops or even whispered the words family vendetta. But that's why pretty, young girl TV reporters were invented, at least by Sheldon.
As Dana sets out to investigate the distinguished career of the Winthrop family patriarch, her lover Jeff, a sports anchor at her station, is called away to administer aid and succor to his former wife, a beautiful model who's realized, too little and too late, that she never should have dumped him. And Kemal, the 12-year-old orphan, is being drugged by his baby sitter, who's in cahoots with at least one set of bad guys. Dana hasn't noticed how tractable the temperamental boy has become recently because she's been dressing up like a two-bit Russian tramp to infiltrate a secret weapons base in Siberia... Do you hear the words movie locations? But all's well that ends well, as it usually does for Sheldon's heroines, and in the meantime you've learned where the five-star hotels are and what to order in a famous restaurant in Rome. A slick, commercial, slightly thin tale told by a craftsman of the genre.

My favorite author of all time. Sidney Sheldon who I mourn in his passing, because I thoroughly enjoyed his books and he could not write them as fast as I read them.

This is quite a short book for Sidney Sheldon. It is a thriller and without so much of his usual sexual situations. I enjoyed this book; it is a quick read, and the subject was interesting. I would recommend it. Genny

If America were to have a royal family, the Winthrops would wear the crown. The popular, charismatic Winthrops have captured the imagination of the entire nation, as well as the world with their public service, their myriad acts of altruistic charity, and their glamorous lives. But in a single year, all five members of the family were killed in a series of unexplained accidents.

Dana Evans, a beautiful young anchorwoman with a Washington television network, believes there is a more sinister motive behind their deaths. She begins an investigation and starts uncovering compelling evidence that she can hardly believe.

In Dana's determined pursuit of the truth, she never anticipated the cat-and-mouse chase that would ultimately lead her through a half dozen countries on the trail of a remorseless killer. As she closes in on her suspect, the shocking secrets Dana then unearths place both herself and her young son in dire jeopardy. In an unexpected turn of events, Dana soon becomes the hunted.

Will Dana be able to outwit her pursuers and finally expose the truth that will astound the world? Readers should prepare themselves for skillful twists and turns in the plot of a dynamite thriller that has become Sidney's Sheldon's hallmark.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. According to Shelfari's synopsis of The Sky is Falling: A Novel by Sidney Sheldon, the character of Dana Evans made her first appearance in The Best Laid Plans. However, this book can be read on its own. I give The Sky is Falling: A Novel an A!
