The Winner Stands Alone


Product Description
Product Details


Russian telecommunications tycoon Igor will do anything to get his ex-wife, Eva, back-even committing serial murder. Eva's new husband, a fashion couturier interested in branching into film production, has brought her to the Cannes Film Festival, where the killings begin to gain her attention. In his 12th novel, internationally best-selling author Coelho (The Alchemist) offers a timely critique of the degeneration of the world's societal mores. Through his complex characters, Coelho illustrates the absurdity of the false dreams we are fed through the strong influences of the fashion and moviemaking industries. He also touches on the intricate connections of major global crises like the Rwandan genocide and money laundering by drug cartels to show how greed can manipulate and destroy. Recommended for popular fiction collections.-Joy St. John, Henderson Dist. P.L., NV Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Spanning 24 hours during the Cannes Film Festival, this scintillating parable about shallowness, greed and celebrity worship from international bestseller Coelho (The Alchemist) unsparingly examines the Superclass, the elite's elite, whose members' dependence on luxury corrupts. Wealthy Russian businessman Igor Malev, who's obsessed with his ex-wife, Ewa, now married to a fashion designer turned producer, morphs into a serial killer to get Ewa's attention. No one is immune as Igor targets a comely street vendor, an influential movie distributor and a big-name actor. The power plays among the various directors, movie stars, starlets and producers make Igor's antics appear almost banal in comparison. Coelho's trademark mysticism and spiritual messages provide an extra boost to the thriller plot. (Apr.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
