Billionaire Maximilian West's perfect existence is dramatically changed by gunfire, exposed secrets, scandals and sorrows. Which of the women clustered around his hospital bed can help him put his life back together? Sweet-voiced Juliet Prague gives a well-paced and wonderfully varied performance. Facile with European and American dialects, she deftly portrays Max's mother, his German nanny, his wife, mistress, and Woman Friday, and a large supporting cast. Even the narrative passages simmer with emotion--Prague makes it sound like the author is as much in love with Max as everybody in the book. Barbara Taylor Bradford's page-turners are always bestselling choices for beach, bus and rainy-day reading. S.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
