This was by far one of my favorite reads. Sidney Sheldon has a unique style of writing and eye for detail. The storie held me the entire time and i enjoyed it so much i have read it 2 or 3 times.
Have some time on your hands when you pick this book up. The plot grips you with violence, power, corruption, hate and love. You find it difficult to put the book down. I found myself completely absorbed while reading this book how wonderful is that?
Always looking for a new author I can get behind, I took the advise of many friends and read this book. WOW! Normally I am a "Romantic, man & woman meet fall in love have a problem get back together" sort of story-lover. This is more like a rollercoaster ride of life. For fear of giving anything away if you read the book but wanting anyone who will listen to read this and be inspired to read this book: Sheldon gives you fantastic character developement. You have a heroine who you can't help but want to cheer on, a supporting hero who you want to like but for the fact that he's married, and a lead hero who you want to hate but just can't because he's to dangerously enchanting. The book is about a lady lawyer and the trials (no pun intended) of her life. During the coarse of the story I kept thinking how is Sheldon going to fix "all this" by the end of the book, and the answer is simple: This is not a story where everything gets fixed. When I first read the back of the book the last line was " they find a love that is more destructive than hate". At first my interpretation was that it was a love that could destruct hate, but now after reading the book the hard part to handle was it meant the love itself was more destructive to the characters than hate was. There are a million love stories that are "Happy ever after", I've read hundreds of them, this is love with some twists and turns, but every bit as fantastic.
This book is very worth reading and grips you right from the start. Sheldon has a way with words that allows you to become part of the story. I hope that you give it a go. I look forward to reading more Sheldon novels! : )
He likes to keep you guessing.

A great read. I couldn't put it down!
Like all of Sydney Sheldon's books, this one is an intense, quickly read thriller. Hard to put down once you start reading, therefore the "quick" part!
A memorable, mesmerizing heroine -
JENNIFER - brilliant, beautiful, an attorney on the way up until the Mafia's schemes win her the hatred of an implacable enemy - and love more destructive than hate.
A dangerous, dramatic world -
THE DARK ARENA of organized crime and the flash -bulb lit courtroom where ambitious prosecutors begin their climb to political power.
This is one of my favorite books of all times. It is one of Sheldon's earlier and best novels.
From the rear cover: "A memorable, mesmerizing heroine-Jennifer-brilliant, beautiful, an attorney on the way up until the Mafia's schemes win her the hatred of an implacable enemy-and love more destructive than hate.
A dangerous, dramatic world-The Dark Area of organized crime and the flash-bulb lit courtroom where ambitious prosecutors begin their climb to political power."
Sheldon is a master storyteller and this book is a nationwide bestseller. Good read.
just what you expect from sheldon
This is not Sheldon's best effort, if only because Jennifer Parker, the main character, suffers from a lack of a life. Which is a problem since this is largely her life story. Still, even a book that's not his best is a very good book!
The way Sidney Sheldon goes into the detail of every thought of the characters in "Rage Of Angels" is great, it allows you to capture every thought and feeling. If you like anything to do with the Mafia, New York, and detail, you'll love this book.
ISBN 0446356611 - For me, this is not Sheldon's best effort, if only because Jennifer Parker, the main character, suffers from a lack of a life - and this is largely her life story. Still, even a book that's not his best is a very good book anyway!
Jennifer Parker passed the New York Bar Exam the first time. From there, it was going to be all good. She had a job working for the NY District Attorney, Robert Di Silva, and the idealistic outlook of a go-getter young lawyer. And then, suddenly, it appeared to be over - her law career was finished a mere four hours after it began. She had sat in the courtroom on one case, and that case would define the rest of her life. Jennifer was made a pawn by Michael Moretti, a Mafia don. That earned her the lifelong hatred of D.A. Di Silva and, eventually, the lifelong love of Adam Warner.
The twists and turns Jennifer takes are made plausible, which is a storytelling feat. From defending the poor for nothing to defending the Mafia is a leap, but Sheldon pulled that off. What bothered me is that, as I said before, brilliant and beautiful Jennifer, has no life. She has no family, one friend and a career. This, apparently, explains how this high profile, somewhat notorious lawyer is able to have a child and keep his existence secret from pretty much everyone for seven years. Even less realistic than that is the last chapter, but I hate to spoil it for anyone! I'll just say it's amazing to me that she's living as Jennifer Parker, free woman, anywhere in the U.S. The nitpicking aside, Sheldon is always worth reading!
I completely loved this book and I reccomend it to anyone.
Jennifer Parker is a brilliant, lovely attorney on her way up. But less than 24 hours after joining the district attorney's office in Manhattan, Jennifer finds her career threatened by a Mofia Prince. Michael Moretti is a compelling, charismatic crime lord who seeks to expand his domain. He will let no one stand in his way...no matter her beauty or ambition.
This is an older Sidney Sheldon novel.
It has twists & turns and you won't be able to put it down like all Sheldon's. I loved it.
