The long-awaited sequel to Sidney Sheldon's #1 New York Times bestselling masterpiece, Master of the Game
In his spellbinding bestseller, beloved author Sidney Sheldon introduced the glamorous, scheming Blackwell family and its unforgettable matriarch, Kate Blackwell. Now a generation has passed, and as the world has changed, so too has America's royal family.
The intervening years have not lessened the Blackwells' talent for manipulation, domination, and passion. The children of Kate's granddaughters are determined to control Kruger-Brent, Ltd., the multibillion-dollar international corporation with holdings in diverse industries around the globe. But only one can reign supreme.
In a family rife with secrets—murder, hidden identities, perversions—and a depraved sense of honor, the player who wins the game may be the only one who can survive.
Gossip Girl meets Dynasty in Bagshawe's compelling sequel to the late Sydney Sheldon's Master of the Game (1982), which chronicled the sticky power struggles of the Maxwells, America's richest family. A new generation of Maxwells includes Eve, an evil temptress brutally scarred by her controlling cosmetic surgeon husband, and her identical twin sister, Alexandra, an angel in comparison. Alexandra dies giving birth to a daughter, Lexi, while Eve survives the birth of her son, Max. Eve plots to take back the family's business empire, rearing Max to hate and, at age 10, kill his father. Lexi's father, Peter, and her big brother, Robbie, surround Lexi with love, but she's traumatized at age eight when she's kidnapped and raped. Years pass as Lexi and Max square off, while across the ocean "the most famous barrister in London" embarks on a quest that will eventually lead him to Lexi, but not without many shocking twists. Bagshawe (Adored) expertly channels Sheldon's lurid, feverish prose.
