Ships from and sold by fusillyg. Unfortunately, "The Trophy Wife" has NONE of the humor and humanity of Goldsmith's work. This book is a dud - I'm not surprised the author is using a pseudonym. The only reason I finished it was because of the promised explosive "surprise ending," but even that was a letdown (I figured it out partway through the book).

I don't know why 'Diana Diamond' didn't use her real name for this book - unless she feared it might keep us. .

I don't know why 'Diana Diamond' didn't use her real name for this book - unless she feared it might keep us away from her 'real' work. I didn't much care for this book, as I found nothing compelling about any of the characters. In one way or the other, they were all spoiled by their success, money and possessions.

He was a kid in Brooklyn, hitching rides on the back of the old DeKalb Avenue trolley. For an instant, the telephone became the trolley car’s bell. as if it didn’t belong on his night table. Then he lifted the receiver and managed a growl. Well, I’m certainly happy that I didn’t take you up on your offer if this is the way you wake up, Helen Restivo told him. And I’m thrilled you refused my marriage proposal. I’d hate to be living with someone who begins each day with a smile.

I don't know why 'Diana Diamond' didn't use her real name for this book -- unless she feared it might keep us away from her 'real' work.
I didn't much care for this book, as I found nothing compelling about any of the characters. In one way or the other, they were all spoiled by their success, money and possessions. I couldn't even be very sympathetic to Emily, the kidnapped spouse, because she herself was cheating.
One of the characteristics of a crafty mystery writer is his/her ability to keep the reader guessing 'who done it'. In this case, I figured out the 'bad' guy way too soon.
All in all, not a very satisfying read. Too bad, because the premise had promise...just not in THIS author's hands.

I love this book. The copy was used but in good condition. No rips or tears any where just as advertised.

This is a pretty good thriller which is extremely exciting in the scenes with Emily and her tormentors. If the book was all like this it would have been five stars in rating easily but the lengthy scenes with Walter and other secondary characters do drag on from time to time giving the book a slightly less over all rating. Great thriller though, highly recommended. Current edition in Australia has none of thesse numerous typos some reviewers are going on about. If they bought books full of typos why did they not return them as they are obviously cheap rip off copies and not originals.
Emily Childs, wife of Walter a banker who is at the top of his industry and in charge of billions of dollars of accounts is violently kidnapped. The kidnapper wants one hundred million wired to an account in the Cayman Islands by Monday or Emily dies. If Walter tells the police or his employer (they have a strict policy not to negotiate with terrorists or other extortionists) Emily dies.
Even though he was about to dump his wife in favour of his much younger assistant and by following company policy under these circumstances he will more than likely be promoted, guilt and pressure from others plays on Walter's mind to do the right thing and pay off the kidnappers to save his wife's life. Andrew Hogan is an ex cop who left the force because he didn't want to be in anyone's pocket and is the bank's head of security so is the only man Walter can trust to get Emily back. Greed however is creeping into the minds of those holding Emily and she must be found before it is too late.

Emily Childs, the wife of successful bank executive, Walter Childs, is kidnapped and an enormous ransom of $100 million is demanded by a mysterious computerized voice. Of course, the kidnappers order Walter not to involve the police or FBI , or they will kill Emily instantly. Walter, who is in line for the top spot at the bank, seems to care more about his position and his mistress than Emily. And everyone seems to be a suspect in the kidnapping, including Walter, his beautiful young mistress, Angela Hilliard (also a bank executive), the security manager, and other officers at the bank.
Although none of the characters are particularly endearing or easy to identify with, the plot held enough intrigue and strange twists to keep me involved until the bizarre but satisfying ending. Of course, it wasn't particularly realistic or plausible, but that's not necessarily what I look for in a mystery. A mindless, entertaining, quick, easy read.
I read this book because the publicity material compared it to Olivia Goldsmith, one of my all-time favorites. Unfortunately, "The Trophy Wife" has NONE of the humor and humanity of Goldsmith's work. This book is a dud -- I'm not surprised the author is using a pseudonym. The only reason I finished it was because of the promised explosive "surprise ending," but even that was a letdown (I figured it out partway through the book). I love a yummy, trashy summer read, but this book was just a mishmash of unlikable characters and implausible plotting. I must also note that I have never read a book with so many typos; if I'd actually purchased this book instead of borrowing it from the library, I think I would've demanded a refund!
