In THE STARS SHINE DOWN, Sidney Sheldon returns to the powerful and classic themes that have made him one of the world’s most popular bestselling authors. And in Lara Cameron, he has created his most memorable, richly drawn heroine to date.
Lara is America’s Princess, the power behind the tallest building on earth, a self-made billionaire who towers over a traditionally male domain, an icon of glamour and accomplishment to men and women everywhere. Beautiful but insecure, ruthless yet vulnerable, Lara has struggled brutally to achieve it all — yet still wants more.
And in a dazzling global setting from London to New York, from Reno to Rome, she will find everything she has ever desired and won — her fortune, her fame, the man she loves — swiftly and shockingly imperiled.
