well, ive read pretty much ever Jackie Collins book written, as my auntie got me into them! so i know a good Collins book when i read one - this was definatly the best!
it doesnt have the classic 'smut' of her usual books, but the excellently gripping story line makes it fantastic! Madison is one of my favourite collins characters, so finding out about her past is the best thing Jackie could have done.
Dont hesitate - buy this book now!

Another great blockbuster from Jackie Collins. This book is well worth the price, a real page turner. The story was before and after sequel to her other blockbuster LETHAL SEDUCTION.
It featured Madison Castelli and her family, how their lives started and how they all ended up.
Right from the start of this book you are hooked and wanting to find out what happens. This is a really raunchy entertaining book just like you would expect from a Jackie Collins novel.
Its a must buy for anyone who likes any of her previous Blockbusters.

Format: Paperback
This is only the second Jackie Collins book i have read. I read lethal seduction ages ago and bought this one and a few others at the same time but then switched to a totally different genre. Felt like a change so finally got around to reading it. It was really enjoyable and fast paced so got through it in a couple of days.
One of the best things about this book is that it switches from different people's points of view and even different decades constantly so you never get bored (makes the book so hard to put down too). It tells the story of Michael Castelli's past alongside his present and that of his 3 children most notably Madison who is being held at gunpoint. The story is very addictive and comes together really well to explain why all the crazy stuff is happening.

However while i really enjoyed it don't know if i would read it again or not(this is important in my opinion - the difference between earning a spot on my overflowing bookcase or being in the next charity bag!). The best bits were all the shocks and twists so now that i know them all i don't think id enjoy it much second time around.

I can't compare how good this is to other Collins books but i really liked it. Its not really my genre anymore but i still got a kick out of it. Definitely worth a read.

Madison Catelli. A woman who's world is shattered when she finds out more than she wanted to know about her family's history and enemies. However, the difficult and complicated life her father has lived comes back to haunt her when she herself is taken hostage in a restaurant by armed gunmen.
This book is fantastic to say the least. It's great how the different parts of the plot, past and present, come together as one and how it ends leaving you wanting more.
A great read.

This book, was brilliant, it was one of the best Jackie Collins I have ever read! The book follows Madison Castelli, who we met previously in Lethal Seduction. It also follows her father Micheal, and it goes back in time following him in his life then swapping to the present. It does sound complicated, but as with all of Collins' books it was a very esay read and I could not put it down, it took me only 2 days to read.
It is a must have for all Jackie Collins fans, as I have seen above, one of the best, it remined me a little bit of American Star.

This is the 2nd Jackie Collins book I have read. My first was Lovers & Players which I enjoyed. However I took Deadly Embrace on holiday and could not put it down. It was a very good read and would recommend it. It was sad in parts of the book but had a good ending. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
