What begins as a beautiful evening at a party on a yacht ends with attempted murder...and a quest for revenge...

One moment Angie Morse is standing on the deck of a large luxury yacht and the next she feels a stinging blow to her head from a champagne bottle wielded by a beautiful woman. And then a push. She is in the water. She can see people on the yacht, but they don't seem to notice that she is gone, and all seem to have deliberately turned their backs as the yacht begins to slowly pull away from her. These are her friends, and one is her love. Two had a reason for getting rid of her, though she would never have thought it would come to this. Until now.

Revenge burns so deeply inside her that she knows she will survive somehow. She will get them. One way or another.

Told with Elizabeth Adler's trademark attention to luxurious detail of people and places, One Way or Another is a glamorous, twisty novel of vengeance and vindication.

Poorly written, bad plot. Don't waste your time. Garbage - exactly. I didn't even bother to finish.

I took the book out because it was a best seller and the summary seemed interesting. Very disappointed by the tale as it jumped all over the place and the events seemed like they came from the imagination of an adolescent. I kept on reading in the hope that I might be rewarded by a great ending. No way - he kills his accomplice and then seems to commit suicide. Garbage - why did RPL buy 25 copies?

I have to agree with the other comments. This was not a good read. I have a rule that if I'm not engaged in the story after the first 100 pages, I give it up. Hence the book was returned unfinished. There are too many good books out there to waste time on a so so read.

This was a very strange read and I think that's why I hung in there till the end. Would not recommend it but if you have nothing else to read, go ahead. Author jumped everywhere throughout the entire novel. Not a keeper.

This is probably the sloppiest book I have ever read and I am astounded that it was published by St. Martin's Press. This novel has so many problems that I cannot believe that it was even seen by an editor. I hardly know where to start but how about this ".......with birds screeching like Emily Bronte's Mrs. Rochester locked in the attic." p.233 How could a major publishing house let that happen? I'm just getting started. The timeline jumps around all over the place; Lucy is at the house, then Lucy is going to the house -- the continuity is skewed over and over. And how about this for plausability--Ahmet is a multi-BILLIONAIRE (with underworld connections) who lives in a secluded house without guards, without any sort of security system and without night staff (the decorator forgot his notes one evening and just returned to the house and walked through the door) Did I mention that the house was filled with priceless treasures? In chapter 1, Marco was renting his seaside cabin but in chapter 3 he describes how he bought it with one of his early commision cheques. Pizza boy is two credits short of his Oxford degree but later he is described as "Oxford bound."The plot holes are just too numerous to mention. I don't know when I have read such an improbable mess. I just have to write about it because I have noticed alot of books are poorly edited these days (although this is the worst) Last year I read a book where a man jumped on a horse bareback and then he fell off and then he grabbed on to the STIRRUPS to pull himself up off the ground.(same publishers). Elizabeth Adler has thirty published novels so maybe the staff at Minotaur books just could not be bothered doing their jobs...... It seems so strange that with so many independently published novels that it would be the big houses dropping the ball. I have barely touched on the errors and inconsistecies and major plot holes. You could read this just for the fun of picking out mistakes but in my opinion this "thriller" was not the least bit thrilling.
p.s. Mrs. Rochester was a character in CHARLOTTE Bronte's classic novel "Jane Eyre"--a publishing house should just know that.
