Summary

Owner of the luxurious and exclusive Keys complex in Las Vegas, Lucky Santangelo comes up against Armet Askarani, a ruthless billionaire middle-easterner potentate with three wives, who has little regard for women except as sexual playthings or breeding mares. Armet wishes to purchase the Keys, and is shocked when he hears that Lucky has no desire to sell - whatever the price. That a mere woman would turn him down is insulting and unthinkable. And so the battle for power begins…

Meanwhile, Lucky's hot son, Bobby Santangelo Stanislopoulos is opening a branch of his successful private late night club Mood in Lucky's hotel, and inadvertently becomes involved in his close friend Frankie Romano's gambling and major drug problems, causing much friction between him and his girlfriend, Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney, Denver Jones. Back in L.A., Max, Bobby's wild and gorgeous teenage sister is getting restless. Not interested in college, she fights with Lucky and suddenly takes off for New York and a series of adventures which could become deadly....

Dramatisation spoils it

I have read this book & enjoyed other jacky Collins books, a fun read. However the dramatisation of this book makes it difficult to listen to. The dramatisation is child like, he said ...... She said ...... It makes it difficult to follow the story. If she had just read it herself it would have been enjoyable. Listen before you buy. I would hesitate to recommend this recording, nothing wrong with book, it's how it has been recorded for audible.

Great!

Although this was great piece of fiction, I can't help thinking, there was a gist to this story: Power is an excessive force behind fantasy. Once it gets too much, where do you go from here?
