If Tomorrow Comes is the story of a woman (Tracy Whitney) so scarred by the hands of misfortune that she is driven to the path taken by a con man.
She is wrongly accused of attempting to murder a man whose schemes had driven her mother to suicide. Her greatest fault is having no inkling that the he is part of the mafia circle, and what was supposed to be a short jail sentence promised by her unknowingly mafia lawyer turns into a 15 year sentence to the state penitentiary for women where she experiences sexual abuse by female convicts. By the hand of fate, she is released earlier than she had to and swears to have her revenge on the man who destroyed her mother and nearly her.
She sets out to start over, but no one will hire an ex-convict. That’s when she fully decides to take on the role that she has been accused of – a criminal and an excellent one at that. She soon enters a world of dazzling wealth and daring exploits.
Something to be of note in this novel is that it is absolutely jam-packed with action especially after Tracy realizes her new found skill. The schemes and rip offs by the crying, innocent-pleading woman turned vengeful, witty conman are very brilliant.
Needless to say, Mr. Sheldon is so brilliant in his plot that it’s a wonder if he hadn’t taken some time talking to some convicts about their schemes and incorporated them into his story. They definitely kept me in awe.
