ABOUT THE NOVEL
Coming to RAGE OF ANGELS , it is the story of one woman Jennifer Parker, smart and talented young attorney (fresh out of law school) with only the best of intentions as she begins her career as an attorney in the NYC District Attorney's office. And her struggle to survive in the bif bad city of New york despite all odds..Jennifer Parker is a strong woman and she is determined to succeed.
Two men come into Jennifer Parker's Life..Adam who helps her with her career in the beginning and then gets romantically involved with her and becomes the father of her son.Unfortunately he is married .Their romance is doomed, however Jennifer Parker remains devoted to his memory right through....
The other man that comes into her life is Michael Moretti ,a Powerful, Ruthless and highly Manipulative underworld don , with whom she gets involved out of compulsion. He helps her recover her son from the clutches of a kidnapper, and this leads to a torrid affair between the two...And she becomes a pawn , used to his advantage.. Jennifer then gets sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly involved in a dangerous chain of events associated with this top Mafia family..Moretti loves Jennifer and is ready to go to any extent to help her out, that is until he discovers about Adam and her..
The portrayal of a strong woman, and the circumstances and the twists and turns that lead her life to unknown depths and the impending tragedy makes this a powerful portrayal.
One can feel the pain and anguish of Jennifer parker in this brilliantly written fiction.The romance portrayed is touching . I personally like this particular story above all his other writings.
It is the kind of fiction that one can easily identify with and sympathise with. Jennifer Parker comes across as a very sensitive and understanding person who gets a raw deal in life. However she rises above all the tragedies and comes out a stronger but a lonely woman. Brilliant portrayal of a sensitive woman who has to struggle single handed to succeed in the highly competetive and manipulative world of law and crime..
This is probably the only book of Sydney Sheldon that has a tragic ending ...nevertheless it is fascinating and very interesting
It was made into a TV film in 1983 with Jacklyn Smith playing the lead role of Jennifer Parker.....
This is One of Sydney Sheldon's finest books, a must read for all Sydney Sheldon fans...
