About the Book

Sheer Madness picks up where its prequel Sheer Pressure leaves off, only on higher octane and with higher life-and-death stakes. It follows the evolution of Alex and Emily as their once scandalous love affair feathers its way into the Upper East Side Manhattan mainstream jungle. That is where their lives really begin and where the reader learns who they really are and what they’re made of. A gripping 20-year family saga, Sheer Madness takes the reader to unexpected realms, as a couple with its roots in idealistic love endures a slew of harrowing experiences in schools and boardrooms, hospitals and cafés, courtrooms and prison—all under the shadow of a well-financed black magic curse. All these venues are captured by Greg Abbott with a true savant’s perspective, in a fast-paced, highly readable tale that nonetheless fits together like a grand jigsaw puzzle. Challenges, tragedies, and surprises abound in marriage, education, high finance, child rearing, near-death illness, the occult, rap music, the media, and prison. As the characters develop in fascinating, unforeseen directions and discover their true destinies, for better or for worse, the reader is treated to a large and delectable story chock full of tragedy, intrigue, humor, injustice, vengeance, betrayal, redemption, and always the unexpected. In the end, through all the breathless tribulations, Sheer Madness is about the triumph of love and the human spirit.
