First, it must be stated that the author of this book is Tilly Bagshawe. She is writing a sequel to Sidney Sheldon's "Master of the Game". The saga of the infamous Blackwell family is continued with a new generation, Kate Blackwell's granddaughter Lexi Templeton and grandson Max Webster.

I found this story to be pleasantly entertaining, but it did not capture my attention to the point of not being able to set it aside for a day or two. The plot was a typical power struggle between two spoiled rich kids who scheme and connive, at all costs, to get control of the family company, Kruger-Brent. There is romance, intrigue, betrayal, hatred, sex, love and passion - all the ingredients to make for a riveting story, but it falls somewhat short of that mark.

While enjoyable, the story at times becomes too predictable and not convincing in the details. I did not find myself identifying with any of the characters or rooting for their success. Instead, I was thinking, "who would do that in real life?"

I would recommend this as a good, but not great read, especially if you've read previous books by either of these two authors.

A sequel to Sydney Sheldon's Master Of The Game, this left me breathless to the very end. The Blackwell family of children and grandchildren continue to weave a web of suspense unmatched by any other writer. Tilly Bagshawe, the author, was chosen to write this sequel and it was a dead ringer for Sidney Sheldon's style. Family secrets, lies, deceit and one ultimate lone surviving winner. If you miss Mr. Sheldon's books as much as I do----don't miss this wonderful book. Bravo to the author.

This book sort of picks up where "Master of the Game" left off. Adding about 10 years later. It was good, but even if I didn't know it wasn't Sidney Sheldon I would question if he wrote it (I've read most of his books and am a loyal fan). But Tilly Bagshawe did a good job in capturing the drama and suspense found in Master of the Game. But I still felt there was something missing. It was a good read though and I would recommend it.
