Subtlety is not Sheldon's strong suit, but rarely has it been so utterly absent from his character development and plotting as in this crudely carved sequel to The Other Side of Midnight , which reprises Catherine Douglas's earlier role as a pretty patsy. Greek tycoon Constantin Demiris likes his plate of revenge ice-cold. Many months after he maneuvered to have Catherine, his mistress, and the lover she betrayed him with executed, he decides to tie up a few loose ends by ordering the death of anyone who can prove he engineered that heinous--and not entirely successful--crime. But like a cat with a juicy mouse, he keeps toying with Catherine, who, though suffering from amnesia, is the only person who could actually sink the billionaire ship owner. Fluttering in her orbit are the world's most thickheaded lawyer and an inexplicable office-mate named Wim, a misanthrope who reels off dates and numbers like an automaton. The final chapters are totally farfetched: one character commits suicide in an especially difficult way and another turns out to be a cold-blooded killer. Yet despite clunky dialogue and gargantuan lapses of logic, the bloody action and sweet turnaround in the final payback are likely to net Sheldon his usual spot on the bestseller list.
About the Author Sidney Sheldon remains one of the world's handful of top bestselling authors, having sold more than 250 million books. Best Laid Plans was his most recent in a long line of New York Times bestsellers. He is also the only writer to have won an Oscar, a Tony, and an Edgar, and the latest Guinness Book of Records heralds him as the most translated writer in the world. Mr. Sheldon resides with his wife, Alexandra, in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, and London.
