Nach russischer Kriegsgefangenschaft gelangt Abel Rosnovski, unehelicher Sohn eines polnischen Adligen, mit einem Auswandererschiff nach Amerika. Dort arbeitet er sich zum Hotelmanager hoch. Sein Schicksal kreuzt sich dramatisch mit dem von William Lowell Kane, Erbe eines gigantischen Vermögens, der zum Bankpräsidenten werden soll. Abel hatte ihn einst bewundert - doch dann nimmt, zurzeit der großen Wirtschaftskrise, ein lebenslänglicher Hass seinen Anfang. »Kain und Abel war der große Durchbruch in meiner Karriere als Schriftsteller. Bis heute ist es vielleicht das beliebteste meiner Bücher, überall auf der Welt. Aus diesem Grund ich mich entschlossen, meinen Roman ›Kain und Abel‹ (der 1979 zum ersten Mal erschien) noch einmal zu überarbeiten und so zu gestalten, wie er in meiner Vision schon immer hätte sein sollen. Ich hoffe, meine alten und zukünftigen Leser freuen sich darauf, William Lowell Kane und Abel Rosnovski wieder (oder auch zum ersten Mal) zu begegnen.« Jeffrey Archer

Living the so-called American dream, Delilah is proof that all good things come to those who wait. But when this pop phenom is found dead, she only proves that all good things come to an end. There are too many whispering rumors and circumstances surrounding her death, and too little time to determine the facts. Was it an accident? Was it murder? The list of suspects grows as Delilah's gangster rapper boyfriend is one of the first to be blamed. But, then there is her incarcerated jealous ex-boyfriend. Could he have anything to do with it? Not to mention her envious former group members that she had left behind to become a solo act. Last, but not least, there is her cruel record executive who couldn't stand to see her in the arms of another man. Just when it seems as though the case is about to turn as cold as the dead diva's body, her grieving grandmother stumbles upon her diary. The pages of Delilah's intimate thoughts are just as intriguing and suspenseful as the pages of this explosive novel. Diva gives readers an eye-opening glimpse into the lavish world of a music megastar. It proves, as the old saying goes, that everything that glitters ain't gold.

Florentyna Kane, die Tochter des legendären Hotelmagnaten Abel Rosnovski, hat es in einer beispiellosen Karriere bis zum Weißen Haus geschafft. Sie ist die erste amerikanische Präsidentin und fest entschlossen, die Welt zu einem besseren Ort zu machen. Doch das Schicksal hält schwere Prüfungen bereit. Durch puren Zufall erfährt das FBI von einem perfiden Mordanschlag auf Florentyna Kane. Fünf Personen wissen alle Details – eine Stunde später sind vier von ihnen tot. Nur der Agent Mark Andrews bleibt übrig. Er hat sieben Tage Zeit, das Attentat zu verhindern. Andrews kann sich niemandem anvertrauen ... und die Frau, die er liebt, ist die Tochter des hauptverdächtigen Senators. »Als ich diesen Roman vor langer Zeit schrieb, verlegte ich die Handlung sechs oder sieben Jahre in die Zukunft. Später wurde mir klar. dass ich meine Geschichte umschreiben musste. In dem Roman ›Abels Tochter‹, den ich in der Zwischenzeit als Fortsetzung zu ›Kain und Abel‹ geschrieben hatte, wird die Hauptfigur Florentyna Kane der erste weibliche Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Es erschien mir daher nur logisch, die Neufassung ›Kains Erbe‹ um meine erfundene Präsidentin Florentyna Kane kreisen zu lassen und eine Verbindung zu ›Kain und Abel‹ und ›Abels Tochter‹ zu schaffen – und meine Familiensaga damit abzuschließen. Die wesentlichen Handlungselemente der ersten Fassung habe ich in dieser überarbeiteten Version beibehalten, jedoch einige Änderungen – bedeutende wie auch geringfügige – durchgeführt.« Jeffrey Archer
