A LEGENDARY MASTERPIECE
A STORY OF MONEY AND POWER,
SEX AND DEATH

Jonas Cord coveted his father’s fame, fortune, even his young, beautiful wife. When his father died, Jonas swore to possess them all. But Rina Marlow was the celebrated screen goddess no man could master. Her sizzling sensuality might inflame and enthrall millions, but her personal boudoir was no Hollywood fantasy. She consumed her lovers on the fiery rack of her burning desires.

Rina and Jonas took Hollywood, the airplane industry, America itself by storm. From New York to LA they brawled, lusted, and carved out an empire, blazoned in banner headlines and their enemies’ blood—only to learn that money and power, revenge and renown were not enough. Too much would never be enough—not for Jonas Cord and the relentless Rina Marlowe. The higher they soared, the more their ambition demanded . . . the darker and deadlier their fiery passions grew.

About the Author

Robbins was the world s first playboy author and master of publicity. In March 1965, he had three novels on the British paperback bestseller list Where Love Has Gone at No 1, The Carpetbaggers at No 3 and The Dream Merchants in sixth spot. With reported worldwide sales of 750m, Harold Robbins sold more books than JK Rowling, earned and spent $50m during his lifetime, and was as much a part of the sexual and social revolution as the pill, Playboy and pot.

At the height of his success, Robbins had a mansion in Beverly Hills, a home in the south of France and a house in Acapulco. He owned a fleet of 14 cars, including a white Rolls-Royce and a number of Jensens, an exquisite art collection (Picasso, Chagall, Leger, Bernard Buffet) and two yachts, one moored in Los Angeles, the other in Cannes.

"Robbins dialogue is moving . . . his people have the warmth of life."--"The New York Times"

"Robbins's books are packed with action, sustained by a strong narrative drive, and are given vitality by his own colorful life." "The Wall Street Journal"
