Having had a sociopath in my life for a time, I was excited about the prospect of a novel taking an honest look at one as a main character. Boy was I sorry. Danielle Steel has always been a hit-or-miss author for me and this was a miss by a mile. Repetitive narration, one dimensional characters and a female protagonist I'd have had to smack if I'd met her face to face. The sociopathic male protagonist came off more as a whiner than a menace until things got physical. Then he just became mean. It got so bad I couldn't even finish the story, which is very unlike me as I'll read almost anything to the end just to see if it improves.

Don't bother unless you're a hard core Danielle Steel fan. It's not worth the wasted time.

Not one of her better books. Towards the end I just skimmed to get through it as she refuses to allow her character to evolve. It's more of the same chapter after chapter.

I used to really like Danielle Steele, but this book left me wanting more. I am not sure if it was purposely repeating the same information as part of the story or if she just didn't have enough to fill the book, but I found it very annoying to keep re-reading the same information. I also don't remember any of her books being scary. This one was creepy and unnerved me.

This was a much darker book than the usual Danielle Steel, but one that I couldn't put down. I just kept saying to myself, "Run, Run!". A great read.

I really enjoyed this book. It hooked you into the story early and never let up. Have some kleenex handy.
