bestseller Sidney Sheldon's Mistress of the Game, this
sweeping tale of love and betrayal, vengeance and
redemption, will leave you racing to its shocking,
What happens when a woman who has everything loses
And when a woman who has nothing realizes she has nothing
Blessed with the face of an angel and the guileless,
trusting nature of a child, Grace Brookstein is the prized
wife of the king of Wall Street, Lenny Brookstein. A
billionaire many times over, with estates around the world,
a fleet of yachts, and a life that is the stuff of
fantasies, the revered financial wizard made his fortune
tending the nest eggs of ordinary peopleâ€”the elderly, blue-
collar workers, small charities, and working families
struggling to make a better life for themselves and their
children. The embodiment of America itselfâ€”ambitious,
hardworking, generous, and warmheartedâ€”Lenny is a fixture
of the business pages and the society columns, where he and
Grace are celebrated for their philanthropic contributions
and their lavish annual fund-raising ball.
Despite the stock market's terrifying collapse, the
Brooksteins' glamorous lifestyle of Palm Beach polo
tournaments and G5 jets remains untouchedâ€”until the day
Lenny goes sailing from their Nantucket beach estate and
never comes home. When his abandoned yacht is found far out
at sea, Grace is devastated. Lenny was her world. She has
no idea that his disappearance is just the beginning of a
dark, terrifying nightmare of murder, lies, greed, and
betrayal that will shatter her life and destroy everything
she has ever known. . . .
Before she can begin to grieve, the shocking news breaks
that the $75 billion invested in Quorum, Lenny's hedge
fund, is goneâ€”and everyone believes that Grace has stolen
the money. Overnight, the delicate beauty who was once the
toast of moneyed society has become a reviled modern-day
Marie Antoinette, alone and power-less to stop her infamous
Grace is certain someone is framing her, and she'll do
whatever it takes to prove it, even if it means taking the
law into her own hands. Surrounded by enemies, with no one
to turn to, Grace must learn to rely on herselfâ€”a bold,
dangerous journey that will transform her in ways she never
thought possible and lead her to a startling new life.
