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.Published on Oct. 20 1999
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 happenedPublished on July 13 1999
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.Published on April 17 1999
I wish I would have read the other reader reviews before I bought this awful book. I could not believe it was written by the same Lawrence Sanders who gave us the McNally books. Read morePublished on Jan. 21 1999 by D. Evans
I was shocked and dismayed at the subplots of this novel, as well as the characters. Not one of them was remotely likeable and the author did not persue any of them in depth for a... Read morePublished on Dec 13 1998 by JRidgeAMF@aol.com
In most Lawrence Sanders novels -- and I've read most -- the reader can connect in one way or another with the main characters. Read morePublished on Oct. 21 1998
