Review of "Rage of Angels - Sidney Sheldon"
I love books of all types but I like them well written and when it comes to thrillers I like a well constructed plot with strong characters - and this book has it all.The lawyer is Jennifer Parker who is a bright young lawyer, beautiful with a very good legal brain. A simple mistake at the beginning of her career brings her to the notice of the Mafia.
The Politician is destined for the very top - the Presidency is not out of the question - and he is married. His meeting with Jennifer and their subsequent relationship is at the heart of this book.
The Mafia boss is also married - but totally besotted with the lawyer and wants to bring her totally under his control. His jealousy and her aloofness create unbearable tensions.
The book follows Jennifers rise in her profession and her growing reliance on the mob, while her attachment to the politician gets ever stronger.Strongly written with well developed characters you can believe and a powerful storyline this book is very hard to put down. Jennifer is highly believable and very easy to identify with. Its quite unusual for the main character is a thriller of this kind to be a woman unless she is a secret agent or super policewoman. Jennifer is very feminine and very intelligent and emotionally strong as well - independant as well.
The strong sexual undertones are well written as are the more explicit scenes - earthy, and basic and to the point, so to speak.The politician vacillating between his duty and his feelings for Jennifer struck a chord, bearing in mind what appears daily in the press regarding politicians and their private lives. I felt that he really did have a dilemma, rather than just wanting his cake and eating it.
I enjoyed the mobster with his certainty about himself and his ability to get his own way - he is a great foil for the conscience ridden politican.I rate it as one of Sheldon's best. I will defintely reread it several times.
