If Tomorrow Comes perhaps is the most entertaining novel Sheldon has ever written. Of all his usual female main characters, Tracy Whitney is probably the most admirable one. Caught of all kinds of misfortunes, she’s ended up so triumphantly. From learning her mother’s suicide to sexually and physically abused in prison, Tracy Whitney is perhaps Sidney Sheldon‘s ultimate heroine.
The story tells about how a woman despite adversities could survive and succeed. Mastering how to be a con artist, she could outwit even men of great cons, using only but her feminine powers.
It tells about greed, honesty, trust, sincerity, even obsession and insanity that could be found in Daniel Cooper‘s character—an agent assigned to investigate Whitney’s felonies.
The plot is breathtaking. The characters are so real you could smell them. Scenes and nothing but scenes are all in it from the beginning to the end.
The moral is that greed and affluence are vulnerable to deceit, while honesty is impervious to it.
