One of Katie Agnew's favourite books.
The Queen of Glitz comes up trumps – she brings Lucky Santangelo back with a fistful of problems, both emotional and lethal. Jackie Collins no longer produces just glitz-filled glamour of old but has dished up a tale with real tension and drama. It is glorious stuff.
November 2009 Guest Editor Katie Agnew on JACKIE COLLINS
My absolute heroine! When I grow up I want to be Jackie Collins. Snobs may mock, but the woman is a literary genius. When I finished my English MA I was so tired of reading heavy, thought-provoking tombs. I'd just read all 643 page of Ulysses, and much as I'd appreciated Modernism, I needed a fix of Bonkbuster. Fast! I spent the summer after my Finals devouring every book she'd ever written and I've been an avid fan ever since. No irony. For me, she's right up there with Dickens and Austen. That's why Jackie has sold more than 400 million books!
The bestselling author of Lovers & Players returns with her twenty-fifth dynamic new novel and her best-loved character, Lucky Santangelo...so get ready for a scandalously wild ride!
Lucky is back with a vengeance - every bit as strong, sexy and seductive as ever. But Lucky is older and wiser now - and she's hot to reclaim her power position in Las Vegas by building a magnificent billion dollar hotel complex.
Max, Lucky's rebellious teenage daughter, is every bit as outrageous as Lucky herself. Max is hard to control, especially when she takes off to rendezvouz with a stranger she meets on the internet.
While Lucky is busy building her hotel, she is unaware that a deadly enemy from her past has surfaced. A person determined to take everything from her, including the family she holds so dear.
Internationally bestselling author Jackie Collins marks her twenty-fifth novel with another dazzling page-turner, packed with desire, sex, revenge and love.
