Sidney Sheldon is a very popular author and his books are a great read during
the lazy days of summer. These stories do not require much commitment from
the reader beyond the time investment. Relax by the pool or on the beach and
remember these books are like a soap opera...you don't need to pay too much
attention to get the idea.

altar only to marry within a few weeks...a marriage that greatly enhances his
political future. There is a dark side to Oliver and death follows
woman in his life throughout his career. But again everything may not be what
