#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Bringing together a cast of fascinating characters in a riveting tale of ambition and corruption, politics, passion, and ultimate justice, Dangerous Games is a thrilling drama from Danielle Steel.
Television correspondent Alix Phillips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world—from riots in America to protests on the streets of Tehran. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, a deeply private ex–Navy SEAL, Alix revels in the risks and whirlwind pace of her work. But her latest assignment puts her at the center of an explosive story that will reshape many lives, including her own: investigating damning allegations involving the Vice President of the United States, Tony Clark.
Alix begins with a nationally revered woman who may be the key to exposing frightening secrets. Olympia Foster is the fragile, reclusive widow of America’s most admired senator, who had been destined for the presidency before an assassin’s bullet felled him. Since then, Olympia has found emotional support in Clark, who once wanted her as his wife and now stands as her protector and confidant. When Alix digs deeper, federal agents pick up the trail. Then the threats start.
As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben’s help as never before. And soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined.

Customer ReviewsSee All
It was very interesting for the majority of the book but it seemed like the climax happened too early and too quickly. As I kept reading I was waiting for something else to happen but nothing did.
Poor plot, poor book, poor editing
I have enjoyed Danielle Steel books before, so I purchased this one in hopes of reading a great romantic suspense book. Did I find that? Absolutely not. What a poorly written book. This could’ve been a great book but seemed rushed and not very well thought out. I wish I could show a picture of some of the sentence structure that was used...here is a small blurb: “‘I hope I’m like him one day,’ Darcy said in admiration of her grandfather, and then Olympia went back to the city for some meetings with Bill’s attorney’s about the estate...” It just seemed all together rushed and not very well thought out.
Interesting look at reporting and personal information about the characters. Great book - thanks.
