For me this story was far more contrived than it was clever.

This was my second time reading it; I first read it when it was first released in 1997.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, the storyline with Dana Evans was a complete tangent that detracted from the main Leslie Stewart/Oliver Russell plot that was outlined by the synopsis. Dana's character and entire storyline felt like plot bloat. So it could've been woven in a lot better.

The other plot twists were quite predictable for me, and as a huge fan of Sidney Sheldon's earlier works, this read really let me down.

For die hard fans, I'd have to say skip this one. I could really only recommend it for teenagers. C+
