Jennifer and Catherine-sisters who have inherited equal shares of power in Pegasus Satellite Services, one of the biggest communications empires in the world-could not be more different. While Catherine is an extraordinary beauty whose looks attract the most handsome and powerful men, her sister is a plain-Jane, no-nonsense gal who prefers running the company to walking the red carpet.

But Jennifer's aversion to the spotlight becomes secondary after the successful launch of the Pegasus III satellite, her newest technological masterpiece. The company needs someone to explain the revolutionary communications tool to potential clients and Jennifer is forced to make the awkward transition from playing scientist in the laboratory to playing hostess at the most lavish party in Cannes.

That's where she meets Padraig, a major film star with enough Irish charm and celebrity cache to make the move to power producer. But when he marries Jennifer, Catherine's protective instincts are triggered: is the playboy actor only after Jennifer's money and connections? When Jennifer is almost killed in a car accident on her honeymoon, Catherine feels she must intervene in her sister's relationship. But Jennifer begins to suspect that Catherine is jealous of the wallflower sister's new romance, and possibly of her power within the company. Was the accident Catherine's murderous attempt to win complete control of Pegasus? Suddenly, neither sister can trust the other in a game that has their love, fortune, and even their lives hanging in the balance.

What begins as a rivalry between sisters becomes a chilling novel of psychological suspense in which one sister find herself alone on a yacht at sea, forced to defend herself from a terrifying killer in league with her sister. But which sister?

"A gripping page-turner."--People Magazine, A Beach Book of the Week

"[A] flawless gem...sharp, brilliant, and strong, the novel is sure to be a girl's best friend-and maybe even a boy's...[Diamond's] convincing action scenes are real enough to leave readers breathless...a clever and genuinely surprising ending tops off a superb thriller." -Booklist (starred review)

"Vivid...thoughtful exposition and careful plotting...Diamond alternates laughs with chills in this tale of marriage, kidnapping, and high finance in the Susan Isaacs/Olivia Goldsmith school of social satire...a strong climax and satisfying epilogue conclude a smart, suspense-packed novel."--Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover:

"Diana Diamond's gripping thriller takes sibling rivaly to a whole new level." --Marie Claire, 10 Best To Do for The Good Sister

One is sugar, the other spice...
To the world, the privileged Pegan sisters are the ideal complement to each other: one sweet-tempered and reserved; the other vibrant and willful. Together they both are determined to lead their global communications empire into daring new territory. As brilliant Jennifer engineers the launch of the world's first private satellite into outer space, glamorous Catherine is drawn to the limelight of Hollywood's movie industry. Each is in her element-and each has captured the attention of two enigmatic men.

But which conceals a soul of ice?
Nobody would ever guess that behind one sister's charming facade lies the bitter resentment born of years of living in her sibling's shadow. Nobody would suspect that soon jealousy will turn to vengeance-and vengeance to murderous rage. Nobody would dream that the woman who possesses everything wants only what her sister has and is bent on evening the score once and for all. But which one is the good sister?

"Imaginative...satisfying...grips the reader and doesn't let go." --Mary Jane Clark, New York Times bestselling author of Nobody Knows
