This is Sidney Sheldon we're talking about. His books need no reviews! ( )

Another excellent Sheldon novel; in Rage of Angels we follow the story of young idealistic lawyer Jennifer Parker who is starting out in her career and then receives a set back when she is tricked into delivering a threatening parcel to a witness in a mafia case. From here the story follows her building of a law practice, affair with a politician that leaves her pregnant and hurt laying the groundwork for her to be drawn into the murky world of the mafia.

It's quite a captivating story and the story line keeps your attention glued to the book as you wonder where events are heading. There's a few surprises and plenty to keep you turning page after page to follow Jennifer's story.

I'd say it's one of his best books. ( )

This book stands out as one of the top that pissed me off more than any other. The writer is talented but there were so many slap in the face moments from the plot that I can't even...I was depressed for days after reading this one. ( )

The story of Jennifer Parker, a successful lawyer who is loved by two men, one a politician, the other, a mafia don. Probably my favourite Sidney Sheldon. Like all of them a fast, easy read. ( )

So I apparently picked this up as a Kindle freebie in May 2010 -- since it was first published in 1980, I'm guessing it was maybe a 30-year anniversary celebration freebie or something. Not being very familiar with novels written shortly before I was born, I had no idea how old the book was.

On the whole, it's aged very well. It reads a lot like a combination of John Grisham's best legal thrillers with some Mario Puzo's Godfather thrown in. The storyline had several major twists, basically all of which succeeded in surprising me.

I even enjoyed the parts of the book that were a little dated -- references to national heroes whose names I didn't recognize piqued my curiosity, and a scene where the main character is trying to complete the "nearly impossible" task of winning a paternity suit made me chuckle. But the dated parts were fewer than you might think... the main character even turns to Lexis and Westlaw for her legal research, just like I do! ( )
