About The Book

*Following the 30th Anniversary edition of The Legacy comes the thrilling sequel, The Talisman, from bestselling screenwriter and author of The Dirty Dozen, Lynda La Plante.

The Talisman is the key to a fortune, or so the tradition says. Each new generation can benefit if they remain selfless enough.

Evelyne and Juliana, the fourth generation, are still haunted by the family's past. Edward inherited his father's looks - and his curse - while Alex's quest for revenge will fuel an empire. 

But a fortune can make people ruthless - and a family can hit you where it hurts. 

This is the passionate story of a family's live and fortunes and the curse that forged their names . . .

***Lynda La Plante's Widows is now a major motion picture***
