In Danielle Steel’s thrilling new novel, a successful woman’s seemingly perfect world is shattered when she faces embezzlement by the last person she would ever suspect.

 

BETRAYAL

 

At thirty-nine, Tallie Jones is a Hollywood legend. Her work as a film director is her passion and the center of her life; one after another, her award-winning productions achieve the rare combination of critical and commercial success. With no interest in the perks of her profession or the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles, Tallie maintains close and loving relationships with her college-age daughter and her aging father, and has a happy collaboration with Hunter Lloyd, her respected producing partner, confidant, and live-in lover. Rounding out the circle and making it all work is Brigitte Parker, Tallie’s devoted personal assistant. Friends since film school, they are a study in contrasts, with Brigitte’s polished glamour balancing Tallie’s artless natural beauty, and her hard-driving, highly organized style a protective shield for Tallie’s casual, down-to-earth approach.

 

As Tallie is in the midst of directing the most ambitious film she has yet undertaken, small disturbances begin to ripple through her well-ordered world. An outside audit reveals troubling discrepancies in the financial records maintained by Victor Carson, Tallie’s longtime, 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. In the wake of an escalating series of shattering revelations, Tallie will find herself playing the most dangerous game of all—to trap a predator stalking her in plain sight.

 

In this riveting novel, Danielle Steel reveals the dark side of fame and fortune. At the same time, she brilliantly captures a woman’s will to navigate a minefield of hurt and loss—toward a new beginning.

Review:

"Tallie Jones is a wildly successful Hollywood director with a loving college-aged daughter, Max, and a devoted boyfriend/producer, Hunt. Her assistant, Brigitte, also happens to be her best friend. However, in the course of a routine audit, it becomes clear that Tallie's fortune is being embezzled by someone close to her. As the FBI investigates, she learns that she's also being cheated on. In order to trap the people responsible, she must keep them closer than ever, but by then it may cost someone their life. Steele's newest (after 44 Charles Street) is as absurd as her previous novels; the glitzy world of Hollywood privilege and cardboard characters offers little in the way of suspense, surprise, or nuance. Existing fans may enjoy it but there's nothing here that would win over new readers. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

The Book has a good plot and good characterization. Unfortunately, Steel repeats herself Ad nauseum in describing Tallie; it almost seems to insult the reader's intelligence. Tallie is heartbroken at the betrayal she suffers from those closest to her and really the novel could have been much better with half the pages. It is Steel's consummate skill which will keep this book at the top of the charts.
