#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In Northern California two successful CEOs are both indispensable to their growing companies’ futures. Both are brilliant at the power game. But the difference between them is huge. One is a man, the other a woman. In this riveting novel, Danielle Steel explores what that means as she takes readers into the rarefied world of those at the pinnacle of international business and reveals the irrevocable choices they make, what drives them, and how others perceive them. The heady drug of power impacts everything they do.
 
POWER PLAY
 
Even though Harvard-educated Fiona Carson has proven herself under fire as CEO of National Technology Advancement, a multibillion-dollar high-tech company based in Palo Alto, California, she still has to meet the challenges of her world every day. Devoted single mother, world-class strategist, and tough negotiator, Fiona weighs every move she makes, and reserves any personal time for her children. Isolation and constant pressure are givens for her as a woman in a man’s world.
 
Miles away in Marin County, Marshall Weston basks in the fruits of his achievements. At his side is his wife, Liz, the perfect corporate spouse, who has gladly sacrificed her own law career to raise their three children and support Marshall at every step. Smooth, shrewd, and irreproachable, Marshall is a model chief executive, and the power he wields only enhances his charisma and is his drug of choice. And to maintain his position, he harbors secrets that could destroy his life at any moment. His world is one of high risks.
 
Like many women in her position, Fiona has sacrificed her personal life for her career, while Marshall dances dangerously close to the edge and flirts with scandal every day. Both must face their own demons, and fight off those who are jealous of their success. Their lives as CEOs of major companies come at a high price. And just how high a price are they willing to pay? Who are they willing to sacrifice to stay on top? Those they love, or themselves?
 
Danielle Steel’s gripping, emotionally layered novel explores the seductive and damaging nature of power. Success and greed, trust and deception, love and loss—all come to a head in this compelling drama of family, careers, infidelity, and the sacrifices some people make to hold on to power . . . or to let it go.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Danielle Steel's Prodigal Son.

Praise for Power Play
 
“In peak form, Steel examines the effects of power on the lives of male and female CEOs in this insightful, all-too realistic novel . . . to dramatize just how differently men and women handle corporate power and personal responsibility.”Booklist
 
“Connecting two powerful CEOs through their children’s romantic involvement, the author uses her signature low-key . . . style to examine personal and professional morality. . . . Appealing fare from Steel.”Kirkus Reviews

whatajoke. This was the most ignorant, sexist, misogynistic piece of modern day "literature" I have ever read. I kept thinking that the book was going to stop any second and announce, "just kidding"!! As a young, urban, female professional I found this book entirely insulting and can only wish that I had these hours added back to my lifetime.

Great read!. I really enjoyed reading this book but, the conclusion was a bit unexpected and disappointing.

Power Play. EXCELLENT!!!

Martipoo

Engrossing. I loved this more than any of her other stories. I'm going to go back and re-read some of them after reading this!!!

BJThompson

Incredible. It is truly amazing to me that it have read EVERY book Danielle Steele has written and each one is better than the one prior to it. Again another two-day read that kept me captivated wondering what the next page would bring. Keep on keeping on D.S.

Power Play. I am amazed that a writer as successful as Danielle Steel could write such a dull book. Paragraph after paragraph says the same thing in a simplistic style. The story could be told in ten pages and there is no reason to make it any longer. This was my first novel by Danielle Steel and will be my last.

Close-by

pOwer Play. Just one hit after another!!!! Very good read!

Rose buckner

Really? I now remember why I stopped reading DS. Repetitive and boring! What a waste of time!

Vascman16

Horrible. I could not have been more disappointed in a book. The writing style is pure boredom . Topics are repeated ad nauseum. There is no plot and no ending. This is my first and last book from this author.

Picklob

Good reading. Cxx

The House. Enjoyable

Power Play. Beautiful. As alway.

Everything to love

Power Play. This book was not that great. It had a lot of repeating lines and moved as if the author were searching for more words or information to add. I was disappointed. Why did the author stop writing about this at page 810? It left me hanging and wondering about soo many things.
