2. Sheldon, Sidney: Master of the Game (0446355453)
WHO IS KATE BLACKWELL?
The symbol of success, the beautiful woman who parlayed her inheritance into an international conglomerate. Winner of a unique position among the wealthy and world-renowned.
A survivor, indomitable as her father, the man who returned from the edge of death to wrench a fortune in diamonds from the bleak South African earth. Now, celebrating her ninetieth birthday, Kate surveys the family she has manipulated, dominated and loved: the fair and the grotesque, the mad and the mild, the good and the evil--her winnings in life.
Is she Master of the Game?
3. Sheldon, Sidney: Sands of Time, The (0446356832)
Spain. A land of eternal passion and unceasing bloodshed. From the vengeance of a pitiless tyrant, four women flee the sacred, once-safe walls of a convent: Lucia, the proud survivor harboring a murderous secret from the savage clan wars of Sicily...Graciella, the beauty still unpurged of guilt from one reckless, youthful sin...Megan, the orphan seeking perilous refuge in the arms of a defiant Basque rebel...and Teresa, the believer haunted by a faith that mocks her with silence. Leaving innocence but not hope behind, they venture into an alien, dazzling world, where each will encounter an unexpected destiny--and the truth about herself.
4. Sheldon, Sidney: Windmills of the Gods (0446350109)
She's on the glinting edge of East-West confrontation, a beautiful and accomplished scholar who has suddenly become our newest ambassador to an Iron Curtain country, a woman who is about to dramatically change the course of world events--if she lives. For Mary Ashley has been marked for death by the world's most proficient and mysterious assassin, and plunged into a nightmare of espionage, kidnapping, and terror. Here, only two people--both powerfully attractive and ultimately enigmatic men--can offer her help. And one of them wants to kill her.
5. Smith, Wilbur: River God (0330331973)
Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on god. And a legend shattered by greed.
At the festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. Only Taita--a wise and formidably gifted eunuch slave--sees him as a symbol of a kingdom's fading glory.
Danger surrounds all those who oppose the ruling elite. But together with his proteges, Lostris, beautiful fourteen-year-old daughter of his master Lord Inef, and the proud young army officer Tanus, Taita begins the long and dangerous journey towards his own glorious dream--to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the Nile.
Returning to the splendour of Ancient Egypt, Wilbur Smith draws the reader into a magnificent, richly imagined saga that explodes with all the drama, mystery and rage of a bygone time. River God is a masterpiece from a storyteller at the height of his powers.
