Yeah. The plot changes even more rapidly than the characters' routine of shediing their clothes. Its like a stale veg fast food, that cant even give you a bad mouth. Worst book I ever read.

link him to the not entirely sucessful crime killed off.

Catherine is currently suffering from amnesia and Constantin can't stop toying with her, as she is basically the only one who knows enough to sink the shipping magnate. I enjoyed this book but found it slightly farfetched. I give it a B+!

Superb!

Memories of Midnight is the sequel to The Other Side of Midnight, written nearly two decades later. The events of this book take place in the late 1940s a little after the finish of Other Side, several main characters carry over - Christine Alexander aka Mrs Larry Douglas, Constantin Demiris

the billionaire schemer and his wife Milena, and Napoleon Chotas the savvy lawyer.

I read this cover to cover in one sitting. Whilst not as long as Other Side, the writing is silky smooth, the story a constant guessing game of who's doing what to whom (or about too) and that ending! Just when you think you have it all figured out... it's a completely different resolution and you can't help but smile as you close the back cover.

I would definitely recommend reading The Other Side of Midnight first for a better understanding of the characters and events however Memories has enough background to stand on its own if you only have it.
