Hollywood Wives

New or Used: 2 copies from $9.53
The fabulous, bestselling Jackie Collins returns to the world of her greatest success in a searing novel of the new - but not necessarily improved - Hollywood. When HOLLYWOOD WIVES was first published more than fifteen years ago, it captivated readers with a decadent combination of suspense, scandal and high glamour, and propelled author Jackie Collins to the top of the nation's bestseller lists. Now she thrills a new generation of readers with a sizzling look at the women of today's Hollywood. Power. Sex. Money. Fame. Today's Hollywood players have it all. If they don't have it, they want it. And what they want they usually get. Ambitious, young, smart and lethal, the Hollywood wives are back with a vengeance, determined to claw their way to the top. Leading the pack is Lissa Roman, a mega movie star and legendary sex symbol, four times married. Lissa is on top of her game - seemingly invincible until Nicci, her wild-child daughter is kidnapped by a crazed psychopath, and suddenly power, sex, money and fame may not be enough. Like the original, HOLLYWOOD WIVES - THE NEW GENERATION will shock and surprise, amuse and startle, taking readers on a roller-coaster ride of fun and suspense they won't soon forget.

In the star-studded publishing cosmos of gossipy fiction, Collins orbits securely between the likes of Dominick Dunne and Danielle Steel. Overlooking the pulpy prose, cardboard characters and soap opera melodrama, her legions of eager faithful will not be disappointed with this newest trendy fable detailing the sleazy sex habits of Hollywood's nouveau riche and infamous. Riding the crest of fame, ageless Hollywood superstar Lissa Roman is fed up with her fourth husband's cheating and has decided to throw him out. Still up for at least one more romance, Lissa gets the hots for the studly PI she hires to evict her slimy spouse. Meanwhile, her gorgeous 19-year-old daughter, Nicci Stone (whose Spanish gigolo father was Lissa's second hubby) is engaged to Evan Richter, the serious-minded half of a team of upstart film writer-producer twin brothers. But like mother, like daughter: why settle for the first guy? Nicci develops a libidinous yen for her fianc's twin. Lost in the mists of lust and expensive living, Nicci fails to notice a suspicious car tracking her every move. Her stalker is murderous ex-con Eric Vernon, who sets in motion his plan to kidnap and ransom Nicci the same night Lissa is scheduled to appear at the opening of a glitzy new Vegas hotel and casino for a record $3 million. All this is set against assorted minor subplots featuring Lissa and Nicci's glamorous inner circles their friends' catty chatter serves as chorus to the central dramedy. With fashions provided by Rodeo Drive and catering by Mister Chow's, this is Collins at her ultra-celeb, super-accessorized, bestselling best. Agent, Morton Janklow.

Almost 20 years ago Collins wrote the best-selling Hollywood Wives, a racy look at Tinseltown's rich and famous that later became a miniseries starring Anthony Hopkins and Candice Bergen. Those wives, living in the shadows of their famous husbands, spent their days shopping on Rodeo Drive and lunching at the trendiest restaurants. While the new generation still indulges in the occasional shopping spree and lunch out, these wives now have careers of their own. Lissa Roman, an ?ber-famous, 40-year-old actress/singer, is getting ready to ditch her fourth cheating husband, while her 19-year-old daughter, Nicci, prepares for her upcoming wedding to a famous film producer. Lissa's best girlfriend, B-movie actress Taylor Singer, is married to Hollywood's top director but can't resist sleeping with a 22-year-old screenwriter. When Nicci is kidnapped and held for ransom, it's a good thing that Lissa is now sleeping with her bodyguard, a private detective and ex-cop. Narrator Michael Brandon offers a strong performance, trying to inject as much drama as possible into this typical Collins melodrama, but, unfortunately, he doesn't have much with which to work. Public libraries should purchase only to satisfy demand.-Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
