NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE from director Ridley Scott, starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver

The sensational true story of murder, madness, glamour, and greed that shook the Gucci dynasty, now fully updated with a new afterword

On the morning of March 27, 1995, four quick shots cracked through Milan’s elegant streets. Maurizio Gucci, heir to the fabulous fashion dynasty, had been ambushed, slain on the steps to his office by an unknown gunman. Two years later, Milan’s chief of police entered the sumptuous palazzo of Maurizio’s ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani—nicknamed “the Black Widow” by the press—and arrested her for the murder.

Did Patrizia kill her ex-husband because his spending was wildly out of control? Did she do it because he was preparing to marry his mistress? Or is it possible Patrizia didn’t do it at all?

The Gucci story is one of glitz, glamour, and intrigue—a chronicle of the rise, near fall, and subsequent resurgence of a fashion dynasty. Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and widely acclaimed, The House of Gucci is a page-turning account of high fashion, high finance, and heartrending personal tragedy.

Kind of boring

Too much focus on details of all the deals between banks, corporations, percentages, throwing millions around back and forth, and little about the actual cast of characters. I suppose if you’re a banker or corporate CEO you might find this exciting but I found it very boring.

Greed, murder, wealth and Tom Ford

I really couldn't put this book down, it's so twisted and chaotic! It's a fantastic and fun read that is over the top. Who knew Gucci was so dark and on the verge of a downfall. Tom Ford saves the day.

Ugh

Too long and boring. Reads like a documentary not a novel.
