About the Author

Born in New York in 1916, Harold Robbins grew up during the Depression. He left school at fifteen-and-a-half to go to work, and by the time he was twenty-one had made his first fortune and lost it. When he was thirty, Harold Robbins began to write. NEVER LOVE A STRANGER became an immediate bestseller. He then became the world's bestselling writer, many of his novels were filmed, and his books translated into almost every language. He died in 1998.

This is one of my favorite Harold Robbins books, as it was one of his favorites. Crazy, wonderful story of a complete sociopath - an international Ferrari-driving, high-stakes gambling, jet-setting playboy who just happens to be one of the Mafia's highly-trained killers. When he is asked to eliminate 4 witnesses set to testify against the Mob in the US, Cesare completes his task in a skilled (but balls-to-the-wall) manner. And you see this is a man who enjoys his job. Something to be done, without remorse...killing without a conscience. Very Bond-like.

But when he realizes that he has become a "loose-end" for his employers, he uses his skills to stay alive and turn the tables on his benefactor.

Easy to see why Robbins loved this book. He should've used it as a launching pad for an entire series of books based on Cesare!!

It is a few decades since I read anything by Harold Robbins and, when I saw this on offer as a Kindle Deal, I thought I would give my 99p to find out what made me such an avid (but furtive) reader of Harold Robbins when I was a teenager. It is easy reading, with sex, a little bit of suspense, sex, violence, sex, a straightforward plot and sex. I found that, over the years, Harold Robbins books had not changed (every time, you get exactly what you expect) but I had changed and, whilst it was an okay read, it was overshadowed by many, if not most, of the hundreds of books I have read in recent years. I was unable to put my finger on what had drawn me in, when I was a teenager, so I tried the same experiment, on the same basis, with The Pirate and still did not get a firm result - there are no Harold Robbins books on my very lengthy Wish List.

A classic. Read this years ago and when my partner was ill in bed got it again for him to read. He thoroughly enjoyed it as did my son after he was then given it. Too good to be made into a film (although it might have been as its by Harold Robbins) which wouldn't do it justice.

A good but not exceptional story. Well worth a read for just a couple of quid. Very good value for money.

I love Harrold Robbins usually but found this story line predictable and the ending dissapointing.

Format: Paperback
Cesare Cardinale is a rich businessman and race driver who also works as a hitman for the Mafia, because he enjoys killing. But after killing four would-be-witnesses, the Mafia bosses are afraid he might talk, so they want him dead.

The plot is a standard hitman story without any surprises. The focus is more on Cesare's romantic affairs than on the actual Mafia/hitman story. The book also spends quite long parts on background stories on the two female characters. "Stiletto" is a quick read, but not very interesting.
