In addition, he penned six other Broadway hits and created three long-running television series, including Hart to Hart and I Dream of Jeannie, which he also produced.

Sheldon knows how to write breezy page-turners, and Rage of Angels is no exception. His characters are absorbing and the action never stops. Susannah York was not a good choice to read this story, however. Her upper class British accent sounded silly when she did the voices of low-life street hoodlums, and she read so quickly, I often had to rewind the tape and listen again. I gave the story 5 stars and the audio cassette version 3 stars.
This book is very worth reading and grips you right from the start. Sheldon has a way with words that allows you to become part of the story. I hope that you give it a go. I look forward to reading more Sheldon novels! : )
Jennifer Parker passed the New York Bar Exam the first time. From there, it was going to be all good. She had a job working for the NY District Attorney, Robert Di Silva, and the idealistic outlook of a go-getter young lawyer. And then, suddenly, it appeared to be over - her law career was finished a mere four hours after it began. She had sat in the courtroom on one case, and that case would define the rest of her life. Jennifer was made a pawn by Michael Moretti, a Mafia don. That earned her the lifelong hatred of D.A. Di Silva and, eventually, the lifelong love of Adam Warner.
The twists and turns Jennifer takes are made plausible, which is a storytelling feat. From defending the poor for nothing to defending the Mafia is a leap, but Sheldon pulled that off. What bothered me is that, as I said before, brilliant and beautiful Jennifer, has no life. She has no family, one friend and a career. This, apparently, explains how this high profile, somewhat notorious lawyer is able to have a child and keep his existence secret from pretty much everyone for seven years. Even less realistic than that is the last chapter, but I hate to spoil it for anyone! I'll just say it's amazing to me that she's living as Jennifer Parker, free woman, anywhere in the U.S. The nitpicking aside, Sheldon is always worth reading!

Very interesting novel. Once you start, it's hard to put it down. The end is quite sad - Adam knew nothing about his son and even after the kidnap of Jennifer's son was mentioned... Read morePublished 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
