New York Times Bestselling Author
Sidney Sheldon’s most popular and enduring heroine—Tracy Whitney of If Tomorrow Comes—returns in a sensational sequel full of passion, suspense, and breathtaking twists.
Tracy Whitney never wanted to settle down. Responsible for some of the world’s most astounding heists with her brilliant, charming partner Jeff Stevens, she's enjoyed the danger and relished the intensity of life on the wild side. But she’s had enough of conning the rich and corrupt out of their ill-gotten fortunes. The one thing that would make her life complete now is marriage and a child with Jeff.
But first, Tracy must finish one last job. An unexpected encounter with an old enemy triggers a series of disturbing events that Tracy never anticipated, raising terrifying ghosts she thought were dead and buried. Once again, this clever woman finds herself out on the edge, playing the odds in a desperate game of roulette.
The stakes have always been high. But with her life and her future on the line, Tracy needs to dig deeper than she’s ever gone before, and find the strength and courage to trump her rivals, no matter what the cost.
Tomorrow has come at last. But it isn’t the future Tracy bargained for . . .
Praise for Tilly Bagshawe as Sidney Sheldon:
‘ Suspense could hardly be greater’ Daily Telegraph
‘ What a pleasure to have Papa’s books live on through Tilly Bagshawe. How he would have delighted in her plot twists and characters. And she’s young and beautiful to boot – a Sidney Sheldon heroine come to life!’ Mary Sheldon
‘ She seemed to catch that inner voice… she was one of his characters. I could feel Sidney smiling down on me, saying “this is perfect”.’ Alexandra Sheldon
About the author
Tilly Bagshawe is the internationally bestselling author of three previous novels. A teenage single mother at 17, Tilly won a place at Cambridge University and took her baby daughter with her. She went on to enjoy a successful career in The City before becoming a writer. As a journalist, Tilly contributed regularly to the Sunday Times, Daily Mail and Evening Standard before following in the footsteps of her sister Louise and turning her hand to novels.
Tilly's first book, Adored, was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic and she hasn't looked back since. She is married to Robin Nydes, an American businessman and former investment banker, and the couple have two young sons as well as Tilly's daughter Sefi. The family divide their time between their home in Los Angeles and their beach house on Nantucket Island.
This outlandish romantic thriller from Bagshawe (Sidney Sheldon's Angel of the Dark) picks up where the late Sheldon left off with 1985's If Tomorrow Comes. Tracy Whitney and Jeff Stevens, a pair of attractive con artists, have spent their careers pulling off lucrative jewel heists around the globe. Now, they're ready to tie the knot and settle down into wedded bliss and gender stereotypes: Jeff gets a job as a curator of antiquities at the British Museum, while Tracy pins her hopes on pregnancy. Enter a sultry third wheel, who shatters the couple's happiness, and a deranged serial killer, whose murders are mysteriously tied to Tracy's previous thefts. Descriptions of an international world of luxury contrast with the lives of lowbrow victims and villains who are stuck with bad accommodation and economy-class travel. Just when the absurdity of it all reaches its highest ebb, the book teeters to its preposterous climax.
