"Bloodline" is a 1977 novel by Sidney Sheldon.

Roffe and Sons is a family firm, an international empire filled with desperate, cash-hungry family members. At its head was one of the wealthiest men in the world, a man who has just died in a mysterious accident and left his only daughter, Elizabeth, in control of the company. Now as this intelligent, tough, and beautiful young woman dares to save - not sell - Roffe and Sons, she will have to outwit those who secretly want her power, and the unknown assassin who wants her life.

Film, TV or theatrical adaptations

In 1979, a motion picture adaptation of "Bloodline" was released starring Audrey Hepburn as Elizabeth. Since the 50 year old Hepburn was considerably older than Sheldon's character, Sheldon revised his novel to place the literary version of Elizabeth into the same age range as the actress. The film adaptation was a critical and box office failure.
