Book Description

n this riveting novel, Danielle Steel reveals the dark side of fame and fortune, when a renowned film director confronts an act of unimaginable treachery.
 
BETRAYAL
 
At thirty-nine, director Tallie Jones is a Hollywood legend, whose award-winning films enjoy both critical and commercial success. With no interest in the glitz of Los Angeles, Tallie centers her life on her work and her devoted inner circle: her family, her producing partner and live-in lover, and her longtime personal assistant and best friend.
 
As Tallie is in the midst of her most ambitious film yet, small disturbances begin to ripple through her world. An audit reveals troubling discrepancies in the records maintained by Tallie’s trusted accountant. Mysterious receipts hint at activities of which she has no knowledge. Soon it becomes clear that someone close to Tallie has been steadily funneling away enormous amounts of her money. After an escalating series of shattering revelations, Tallie must face the harsh truth behind her seemingly perfect life:  that sometimes trust can be the greatest illusion of all.

Includes an excerpt of Danielle Steel’s Until the End of Time

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes Finally a Danielle Steele Novel that is GOOD!!! April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After DS last few books which were terrible, Hotel Vendedome was the worst, Danielle Steele finally writes a good one!!! This was more in line with her earlier works. We has a well thought out plot, and characters that you actually cared about. Talle is a well known director who places her life and money in the hands of two trusted employees. When she finds out that these two trusted "friends" betray her in some horrible acts, Talle must set out to redefine her life. Along the way she must make some decisions to part ways with Hunt and Bridget and that is the heart wrenching part of the story. Without giving away the plot to much, you will find yourself shocked at some of the events that occur along the way. The character development is great and Talle, Max and Jim are three well written characters..that you will actually root for in the end.

Much like Danielle Steels earlier work, this one is a page turner and you wonder did she actually write this one since her last few novels were terrible. I told myself after the last few books that I was done....having read all of her books. However this one intrigued me and I went ahead with it and I am glad I did. I really enjoyed it!!! SHES BACK....DANIELLE STEELE IS BACK!!!!!

By the second chapter the plot became predictable. Steele has become formulaic and she "fills" the verbage with repetition. I am disappointed because she was much better with her earlier novels.

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable book April 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book but I was predicting what will happen and I was right. Nothing great about the plot, a little sappy at times. Not a page turner but it holds your interest. Wish I could give it 3 1/2 stars.

I read this book overnight. I could not put it down. I was sitting on the edge and nearly cheated, although I did not do that. It really is a great novel by this wonderful Author. I have read all Danielle Steel's books and this is my 3rd favorite of all. My first is The House, My second is Hotel Vendone and my third is Betrayal.I am eagerly waiting for her next novel. I wish she would bring out some movies from these novels again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Betrayal May 24, 2012
By JAY
Format:Kindle Edition
It appears DS didn't have enough material for a complete novel. She began repeating her thoughts in the 1st chapter and sometimes in the same paragraph. I felt the writing was very unprofessional.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three and a half stars March 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is hard for me to believe that any halfway intelligent person would hire a slut to be her personal assistant and then be surprised that she has other moral deficiences as well.

Having said that, I feel that Ms. Steel has crafted a novel that is more typical of earlier works. This book has some real heman heart and pathos. I felt myself responding emotionally to the tragedies that occured here and liking the heroine despite her extreme naivete. I enjoyed this book!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not ready for another Danielle Steel book! January 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had not read Danielle Steel in a long time and when I read Betrayal I realized why. Danielle Steel repeats and repeats certain points she is trying to make in her story. I wanted to shout "I get it" when I kept reading about how the main character dressed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh pleeze....... August 20, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I give up on DS books. I don't really need to know how the upper 1% lives. Honestly, this was very predictable. How many times can the words, "sob, sobbed, or cried" be used per page during the first third of the book. For being so smart, the heroine had a few brain cells missing in order for her lover and assistant to fool her for FOUR years. Give me a break.
