This book is a waste of time, trite, predictable and sorid. Shame on the author for throwing many of life's ugly aspects into one book. You can't help but think he had a contract for a book and simply looked for the easiest way to compile titilating issues; homosexuality, aids, incest, biracial relationships, infidelity, illness, back stabbing greed, etc. Nothing redeems this book.

I enjoy and look forward to any Lawrence Sanders book. This was unlike like anything I have ever read from him. I don't object to how he paces the book, with years of gaps in the storyline. But this is beyond disjointed. There is no logic or motive behind the characters, except sickness perhaps. And there is no satifactory conclusion to any of the multiple storylines, with the ending being the most inconclusive part of the book. If you want to be disgusted, confused and disappointed in an otherwise good author, then this is the book for you. I won't even put in on a garage sale, I don't want anyone to know that I wasted my time reading it.

There are alot of odd families in this world. Alot of odd families with secrets. However this book was disgusting. This book is just like those comic books, movies, or television shows that have extreme nudity and violence just so they can shock people. You can add this book to that list.
I threw away this book after reading the first couple of chapters.
Do not buy this book!!!!!!!!!!

Guilty pleasures by Lawrence Sanders G.P. Putman's Sons 1998
Sanders has a number of novels to his credit and on the whole, those I have read, have given pleasure, although personally I find the McNally series weaker than the "Sin" and "Commandment" series. This book seems to fit with the McNallys.
The story revolves around Emmet Folsby, the owner of a wealthy publishing company, his dying wife Constance and his two children Barbara Ann and Brett. Emmet and his daughter Barbara have an incestuous relationship of long standing which has been kept secret from Constance. Barbara is also having affair with a young Noah, being sponsored at Harvard Law School by their neighbor, retired Judge Hampton, who is sleeping with Noah's mother. Brett, who is bi-sexual, decides to marry and have a child to enhance his chances of inheriting the business. All except Constance are very sexually active. You get the picture - not much to the story and not one that I would recommend.

The book never developed into - anything. It's like a Seinfeld episode...only without the humor.

Usually Sanders keeps you riveted, this was a book that left you hanging. The ending was really disappointing. You kept waiting for a plot that never happened

Contrary to popular opinion, I really enjoyed this book. The plot and characters were twisted enough to keep my interest throughout. As always, I look forward to the next one.

Format: Hardcover
To Sanders fans and casual readers, this novel is a major disappointment. Still, I must admit to some amusement at the intensity with which other reviewers here are attacking this weak effort. It should be noted that this novel was published just after Sanders' death, and it is possible that he intended to work on it more but was prevented from doing so by ill health. Alternately it's conceivable that his declining health may have kept him from tapping some of his usually delicious ideas and left him with a potboiler that rarely bubbles. The Sanders style is here, but muted. A final McNally novel is scheduled for this summer, so let's keep our fingers crossed and hope that this one is closer to Sanders' usual standard. As for all those folks who exclaim that they won't read another one --- well, this is the last one. Too bad he couldn't have departed on a more graceful note.
