9780007304516: Master of the Game

WHO IS KATE BLACKWELL? She is the symbol of success, the beautiful woman who parlayed her inheritance into an international conglomerate. Winner of a unique position among the wealthy and world-renowned. And she's a survivor, indomitable as her father, the man who returned from the edge of death to wrench a fortune in diamonds from the bleak South African earth. Now, celebrating her ninetieth birthday, Kate surveys the family she has manipulated, dominated, and loved: the fair and the grotesque, the mad and the mild, the good and the evil -- her winnings in life. Is she the... MASTER OF THE GAME?

About the Author:

As a legendary storyteller, novelist, and screenwriter, Sidney Sheldon remains one of the world's top bestselling authors and is the only writer to have won an Oscar, a Tony, and an Edgar. He was also the recipient of the prestigious French Prix Littraire de Deauville award. All eighteen of Sheldon's novels reigned at the top of the "New York Times" bestseller list. His second, "The Other Side of Midnight", held the "Times"'s then-record of fifty-two weeks on the list. Sheldon was the creator of TV's classic hit programs "The Patty Duke Show", "I Dream of Jeannie", and "Hart to Hart". Additionally, he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer" starring Cary Grant and Myrna Loy. He twice won the Screenwriters Guild Award for Best Musical--for "Easter Parade" and "Annie Get Your Gun". "The Guinness World Records 2004" heralded him as the most translated author in the world.
