The Sky Is Falling

Производитель: "Hachette Livre"

Dana Evans, who made her first appearance in Sidney Sheldon`s The Best Laid Plans, is aspunky, good-looking, young Washington TV journalist who`s recently returned tothe nation`s capital from the Balkans, where she adopted a handicapped warorphan who`s having trouble adjusting to life in America. But that doesn`t keepDana from following a story all over the world, from Washington to Aspen, Nice,Juneau, Dusseldorf, Rome, Brussels, Moscow, and Siberia. Each of these briefvisits is like a postcard--a local landmark or two, an interesting localrestaurant (at least in the European venues), and another piece of the puzzle,which has to do with why every member of a venerable, old Washington dynasty hasdied a violent death in the last year. It seems strange that in a media-savvycity like Washington, no one but Dana has noticed there`s a pattern in the rapidextinction of the Winthrops or even whispered the words family vendetta. But that`s why pretty, young girl TV reporters were invented, at least bySheldon. As Dana sets out to investigate the distinguished career of the Winthrop familypatriarch, her lover Jeff, a sports anchor at her station, is called away toadminister aid and succor to his former wife, a beautiful model who`s realized,too little and too late, that she never should have dumped him. And Kemal, the12-year-old orphan, is being drugged by his baby sitter, who`s in cahoots withat least one set of bad guys. Dana hasn`t noticed how tractable thetemperamental boy has become recently because she`s been dressing up like a two-bit Russian tramp to infiltrate a secret weapons base in Siberia... Do you hearthe words movie locations? But all`s well that ends well, as it usuallydoes for Sheldon`s heroines, and in the meantime you`ve learned where the five-star hotels are and what to order in a famous restaurant in Rome. A slick,commercial, slightly thin tale told by a craftsman of the genre.
