Sidney Sheldon introduced the glamorous, scheming Blackwell family and its unforgettable matriarch, Kate Blackwell, in his worldwide best seller Master of the Game. Now a generation has passed, and as the world has changed, so too has America's own royal family. Yet the intervening years have not lessened the Blackwells' drama or talent for manipulation, domination, and passion.

Though Kate is long gone, the children of her beloved granddaughters, Eve and Alexandra, battle to carry on her powerful legacy. Each is determined to control Kruger-Brent, Ltd., the multibillion-dollar international corporation with holdings in diverse industries around the globe. But only one can reign supreme. . . . Lexi Templeton is a ruthless competitor with the brains and beauty to match. Raised by her psychiatrist father, Lexi burns to follow in her great-grandmother's footsteps and become her own Mistress of the Game. She is not alone in her ambitions. Her handsome and nefarious cousin, Max Webster, the son of Eve, will stop at nothing to own the prize of Kruger-Brent. Driven by hatred, jealousy, and blinding devotion to his bitter and twisted mother, he will seduce, betray, and even kill to succeed. And there is another player with plans of his own: a little-known descendant of Kate's great-grandfather. Growing up in poverty in Aberdeen, Scotland, handsome and cunning Gabriel McGregor is determined to fulfill his destiny . . a quest that will lead him deep into the heart of the Kruger-Brent empire.

In a family rife with secrets - murder, hidden identities, perversions - and a depraved sense of honor, the player who wins the game may be the only one who will survive.

Full of the late master's trademark elements - remarkable characters, dazzling plotting, and a page-turning narrative style - this sizzling sequel vividly captures the master's voice and irresistible magic. Vintage Sheldon, Mistress of the Game will enthrall loyal fans and introduce his enduring... Download and start listening now!

    " Lexi was no Kate Blackwell but still a good book. master of the game is one of my favorite books of all time. This book was a bit disturbing in parts, I felt unnecessarily but a pretty fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abishag | 2/19/2014

    " Such scandallllll. I swear. Fast paced and un-put-downable. If that's a word. Its a good story follow up to Sidney Sheldon's Master of the Game. Tho I wonder how Sheldon himself would have wrote the sequel, I can say that I still enjoyed Bagshawe's follow up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 2/18/2014

    " It is what it is. A story of money and lust. Capitalizing off of the Sydney Sheldon book "Master of the Game". It is a guilty pleasure and a good read for pure enjoyment. The story moves fast with one chapter often leaping ahead 3-5 years from the previous chapter. Personally, I like hti sas it keeps the story moving. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rashmi Rahagude | 2/12/2014

    " well, even though this is a sequel it keeps u glued till the end...... Considering that a writer of sidney sheldon's calibre has a tremendous legacy, tilly has done a quite gud job to bring it sumwhere to his level "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moleculaaburrida | 2/8/2014

    " I enjoyed better than the first book (from Sidney Sheldon) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/29/2014

    " An engaging read, but the ending will make you want to chuck the book across the room. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krisi Kranz | 1/26/2014

    " Loved this book. Made me want to go back and read Master of the Game again. Tilly Bagshawe did an excellent job of living up to Sidney Sheldon's standards. It was a book that I hated to finish because I knew the next book I read would not be as good! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maan Beltran | 1/25/2014

    " Sidney Sheldon was and probably is (even if he's gone already) my favorite author. So imagine my excitement when I saw this book years ago at our local bookstore. I was so excited I immediately read the book when I got home. Only to get disappointed in the end. I didn't feel the can't-put-down-need-to-finish urge just like when i was reading Sheldon's work. I got bored and gave up reading. Sorry to say this but Tilly just ruined it. "

    " the book had all the elements of Sidney Sheldon, the only thing being it was a lengthy!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kishore | 1/18/2014

    " Not even close to Sidney Sheldon, or Master of the Game, but good on an absolute scale. "

    " Good sequel to Sidney Sheldon's "Master of the Game". Bagshawe captures Sheldon's style quite well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keshav Bhaskar | 12/27/2013

    " This comes after the Master of the game.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dushyant Thadani | 12/14/2013

    " Not the best sequel one could think to Master of the Game. It wasn't the way the story should have gone for me. It strayed from its path and the ending of the book just left me confused. All in all, an average book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nance | 12/7/2013

    " a classic sydney with globe trotting thrills and unprdedictable plots. lexie was as good as any blackwell...loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glenissa | 10/3/2013

    " I haven't read the prequel, but this book surely was worth the read. Now I'd like to read the famous Master of the Game :) "

    " A very good book, couldn't put it down until it was finished. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Isabel | 12/6/2012

    " I have never read a book with so many unlikeable characters. Disappointed in Sidney Sheldon "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 9/7/2012

    " having read master of the games years ago I was curious to see what had happened to the character. Sidney Sheldon along with Tilly does not disappoint.. However it did lack a certain ruthlessness that Sheldon was famous for... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Anderson | 6/27/2012

    " A very good follow up to Sidney Sheldons "Master Of the Game". Where Master Of The Game finishes Mistress Of The Game starts and brings the story up to the present day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Snezhana | 4/12/2012

    " great impression. this is not just a must-read, it's a must-re-read book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmaculate | 2/26/2012

    " wonderful, couldn't put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodie | 1/20/2012

    " Loved the sequel. But like everyone else, I'm not crazy about ghost writers. Clearly this wasn't Mr. Sheldon's style, but I thought she did a good job with the sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeniffer | 1/12/2012

    " Not as good as the original "Master of the Game" and also Sidney Sheldon died before finishing this book so it was actually finished by someone else. It is only worth reading if you hunger for more Blackwell Family drama! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blossom | 1/7/2012

    " Gabe McGregor's character is more enticing than Lexi's... hhmmm... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/13/2011

    " i like to see what happens to characters, this was pretty cheesy. "

    " Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Had to try and recall the original book, but then once the story got going it all fell into place. Quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra | 3/24/2011

    " This was pretty good. I haven't read Master of the Game, so I can't really appreciate the story line as much as someone who knows the background. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tanya | 2/8/2011

    " No. Just. No.

    Tilly, I am sure you are a decent enough writer in your own right, but you are not Sidney and by trying to be Sidney, if you ask me, you are tarnishing his legacy.

    Step. Away. From. The. Sidney. "

    " I have read all of Sydney Sheldon's books as he is my all time favorite author-- Tilly almost captures it but not quite. But it will do for me.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 7/1/2010

    " I was quite disappointed with the ending. Why didn't they live happily ever after? Lexi could've just paid the detectives. Does this means there is another installment? :| "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 6/30/2010

    " It has been years since I read Sheldon's Master of the Game but love how Bagshawe wrote using Sheldon's style to continue the story! "
