This is Jackie Collins at her hottest and very best! JC skirts cleverly with the mafia business, never giving too much away, and always leaving the reader wanting more. At times Gino Santangelo is a ruthless, cruel man, then he'll surprise you by acting in complete contradiction, and you find yourself loving him again. The book is far from predictable, and despite some of the least nice events (like murder), it retains a sense of humour that somehow makes you think it was OK to kill that nice guy really. This book is compulsive reading, full of strong characters, lots of action, thrills, and Hollywood gossip. Miss it at your peril, but be warned, you may need heat resistant gloves to turn the pages, because they SIZZLE!
