Customer Review

on 9 July 1998
Thrill had all of Jackie Collins ingredients--sex, a fast-pace, beautiful movie stars, secrets, a stalker. But the book wasn't as thought out as Jackie Collins's other page-turners. Lara Ivory, a gorgeous movie star was being stalked by Alison Sewell--not giving away any plot here. It was established right away that Alison was keeping tabs on Lara, though Lara was unaware. And a female stalker was fresh! And readers are allowed into Alison's mind. It was rare learning what made a baddie tick. But that alone doesn't save the tome. While Lara was being harassed, she was busy making a movie. She didn't complain to her friends, or go to the police about being stalked. She was rather blase about it. In fact, she spent more time swooning over the dashing, enigmatic Joey Lorenzo. Her thoughts should have been preoccupied with a lunatic keeping her under surveillance. She even went on a nocturnal walk with Joey shortly after meeting him. For all she knew, Joey could have been her stalker! In addition to Lara's disregard for her safety, a child molester was allowed to go free. Hey, revenge is a prevalent them in Jackie Collins novels, so why was this allowed? Geez! The book was flawed, yet, easy to read, but disappointing. Usually, Jackie Collins writes strong women--women who can be role-models--not airheads. And the bad guys usually get their comeuppance. Big time. So, I'd wait for "Thrill" to come out in paper-back. It ain't worth the hard-cover price.
