The sweeping story of passion, power, greed an betrayal spans over 40 years from the tough streets of depression-hit New York to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and Las Vegas. For the first time Jackie Collins has been closely involved in the adaptation of her own novels. After the brutal murder of her mother, the wild and headstrong teenage Lucky Santangelo is packed off to an elite Swiss finishing school by her heavy-handed father, Gino. Self-destructive and frustrated by her over-protective father, Lucky always wants to live life in the fast lane and soon skips school to go thrill-seeking in Europe's glittering hot-spots. The exasperated Gino is not to be denied, however, and Lucky is married off to a powerful senator's son to try and break her wild spirit. But Lucky is the mirror-image of her ruthless father and is never afraid to take chances to get what she wants in a male-dominated world. Her impetuous ways and smart mouth are matched by an even smarter mind and a burning ambition to win her father's love by taking over his empire when he is forced to flee the country. But dangerous enemies from their past are about to bring fear and heartbreak to them both.
