Beschreibung des Verlags
In the deliciously shocking, wickedly funny, and highly absorbing wild ride, master storyteller Jackie Collins delivers a decadent and compulsive account of sex, ambition, and deadly revenge centered around a group of over-indulged Hollywood offspring about to discover themselves—in some cases, with grave consequences. . .
The Hollywood Five are the kids of privilege—a clique of jaded twenty-somethings trying to find their own footing in the glitzed-out world of their parents’ making. One may imagine that having everything you’ve ever wanted handed to you makes for quite the satisfying life, and maybe it does. . .until murder shatters their idyllic existence for good.
Coltish bad-girl Jordanna Levitt is the daughter of a powerful producer and legendary movie star mother, who craves more from life than velvet-rope premiers and all-night parties but can’t seem to find that missing thing that makes her tick. Sassy, leggy, shopping-obsessed redhead Cheryl Landers has little perception of life beyond the shops on Rodeo Drive until she makes the acquaintance of a Hollywood madam and discovers a lucrative new pastime to keep her busy.
Junior agent Grant Lennon, Jr. has an insatiable need to bed starlets and is more than happy to audition “actresses” for Cheryl’s new enterprise. Munchausen headcase Marjory Sanderson is the queen of inventing illnesses and phobias to try and get her father’s attention, failing each and every time. And gorgeous Shep Worth does whatever he can to keep his sexual proclivities private.
But everything’s about to come to a head when a recently released psycho-killer emerges, hellbent on getting revenge against the gang. Add to the mix an ex-NYPD detective searching for his kidnapped daughter and a brilliant, beautiful journalist way ahead of the cops in putting the pieces of solving the crime together and you get the kind of multilayered, richly faceted, and high-octane thrill ride that only Jackie Collins can deliver!

Collins (Hollywood Wives; Hollywood Husbands) grabs fans with a no-holds-barred (and no subtlety shown) surefire bestseller spun around the disaffected children of Hollywood moguls. Tired of club-hopping and sexual flings, 24-year-old Jordanna Levitt is immobilized by ennui when a massive fight with her father-a famed producer married to a woman younger than his daughter-forces her out of her cushy nest. She lands a gofer job with Bobby Rush, the hot-ticket son of an ungracefully aging movie star, then quickly makes her mark as an actress. Her best friend Cheryl Landers deigns to try working, too, and becomes a successful Hollywood madam. On the periphery are Grant Lemon Jr., the dissolute son of a celluloid icon; anorectic Marjory Sanderson, the whiny, daughter of a TV magnate; and Zane Ricca, a movie-star wannabe and Mafia boss's nephew jailed for seven years for murdering a young actress and now stalking the women who testified against him. Collins festoons her pulp sundae with dollops of hot sex in cars, beds and driveways; Fatal Attraction-like trysts between stars and a cascade of trademark names. Overlapping plot lines are propelled by rude energy and blazing tabloid-style tales of suicide, substance abuse, towering egos, dubious parentage and truly star-crossed lovers. 500,000 first printing; major ad/promo; audio rights to Simon & Schuster; Literary Guild main selection.
