Harold Robbins, the godfather of the airport novel, changed the face of publishing with classics such as "The Carpetbaggers", "The Dream Merchants" and "The Lonely Lady". His readers loved his steamy tales of money, soft porn, drugs, corruption, greed and, just sometimes, redemption. The world's first playboy writer, Robbins reportedly frittered away $50 million on fast cars, loose women and high living. But obsessed with fame and fortune, Robbins was a deeply complex and often controversial man, and even his closest friends and lovers could only guess at the past of the man behind the perma-tanned mask and gigantic mirrored sunglasses. This is the fascinating story of his extraordinary life.

'A fascinating portrait of a remarkable man' The Times 'A hugely enjoyable biography of a scurrilous life' Observer 'Makes a fascinating cautionary tale, and Wilson tells it with wit and concision' Blake Morrison, Guardian 'Wilson's biography is utterly mesmerising, the story of a life which combines elements of comedy and sheer horror to keep the reader turning the pages with eager anticipation' Daily Express
