OK ,but not the Harold Robbins i know!,
You have your guilty pleasure books, and then you have your embarrassed-to-read books. This book falls under the latter category. I remember enjoying The Carpetbaggers, but this was just lazy writing. The book was full of unnecessary descriptions of things/events that didn't go anywhere, and was surprisingly lacking in further explanations of things that were important to the story. The phrases "You're crazy", "a man of honor", "we're family", and "Peruvian pussy" were overused to the point of p ...more

Este libro lo tiene todo. ¿La escena donde unas pirañas le comen las piernas y área genital al hermano del protagonista? Claro. ¿La escena donde explican MUY explicitamente como el protagonista tiene sexo anal con la novia de su hermano muerto? ¡Por supuesto! ¿Una historia que intenta mostrar la crueza del mundo de la mafia en los ochentas?

Bad read. This is an adventure book with great potential but the writer, for lack of a better word, sucks. Rather than using descriptive words or a larger variety of words he goes straight for the f's & p's which is fine, but I noticed in place of great writing he goes for vulgarity. I finished the book and as far as an adventure novel this is fine. Literary genius, I think not.
Book is divided into two parts..with no connection to one another,except for the fact that the protagonist making some contacts by which part 2 continues.The author brought about bitchy part in evry female character.last but not least,i learnt that peruvian pussy is the best in the world

Very much written by a man. The love sences were horrible. The words.. not so great. In the end I liked it.. but will not read more of his work.
I've read much better books by Robbins. Seemed as though he was just looking for a paycheck.

Short and very readable book of money, sex and greed.......a beautiful combination!

Didn't like it -- Only read half. All about corruption and crime.
