Sidney Sheldon's The Tides of Memory

Sidney Sheldon & Tilly Bagshawe

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


An addictive, edge-of-your-seat thriller filled with the hallmark elements that made New York Times bestselling author Sidney Sheldon—"the master of the story-telling game" (People)—an international legend: shocking twists, money, power, and betrayal involving an influential family and the beautiful and formidable woman at its center whose dark secrets can destroy them all.

The conservative party's newest superstar, Alexia De Vere has worked hard to realize her political ambitions. The brilliant and ruthless wife of wealthy aristocrat Teddy De Vere, Alexia relishes her power and the control it gives her to shape and destroy lives.

Yet success has also demanded sacrifice. Her daughter, Roxie, a bitter young woman confined to a wheelchair after a failed suicide attempt, blames Alexia for ruining her life. Alexia's dashing son, Michael, is risking the family's good name to jump-start his entre-preneurial dreams. Thankfully, Alexia has Teddy, her devoted husband who will stop at nothing to protect her.

But beneath Alexia De Vere's gilded life and formidable facade lie secrets that are ugly, dirty, and deadly. When long-buried mistakes of her youth begin to resurface, old hatreds are rekindled and Alexia finds herself on the brink of losing everything—her power, her family, and even her own life. Now the woman who rose so high is on the brink of a perilous fall. For when the tides of memory rise, the only thing that might save her is the truth. . . .

Publishers Weekly Review

May 13, 2013 – Death by drowning, secret pasts, dirty politics, beautiful, ambitious women, and ice-cold killers distinguish Bagshawe's dynamic novel, commissioned by the late Sheldon's family and written in his style. As counselors at the tony Kennebunkport camp, privileged party-girl Toni Gilletti and her blue-color lover Billy Hamlin are present during a young camper's tragic drowning. Trumped-up charges lead to Billy's conviction for murder. Racked with guilt, Toni leaves home, reinventing and sanitizing her past. Years later in England, Alexia De Vere's surprise appointment as Home Secretary shakes up Parliament's old boys' club. As the second most powerful politician in England, Alexia must battle daily with myriad enemies: jealous colleagues, rowdy protesters, a mysterious stalker, a threat from her past, ruthless Russian oligarchs, and the unknown person who poisoned her dog. Rattled by escalating events aimed at derailing her career, yet bolstered by the support of her aristocratic husband, Teddy De Vere, and her best friend, Lucy Meyer, Alexia continues her work, even as she struggles with the tragic circumstances of her children, Roxie and Michael. Bagshawe (Mistress of the Game) keeps the action refreshingly unpredictable, revealing key connections and duplicity in delicious "aha!" moments.

Tides of Memor

Excellent book, gripping with several twists and turns. Just when I thought I had read the best book I read one that is better than the last. An exceptional piece of work! Can't wait for the next one.

A good read

A great story.....there were a few holes but non the less satisfying.

Predictable Twists!

In typical Sidney Sheldon fashion, just when you think you have it all figured out, the predictable becomes another twisting turn to the plot. A great read.
