From the author of The New York Times #1 bestselling novel The Carpetbaggers comes a four-book bundle of Harold Robbins’s best thrillers. His books have long resonated with audiences due to their graphic depictions and complex, multilayered characters, garnering as much acclaim as they did condemnation. Never Leave Me: Ambitious advertising executive Brad Rowan comes to New York with a mission: make it big, and do it fast. Reminiscent of Mad Men, this is a tale of greed, sensuality, and all-consuming ambition.Dreams Die First: Casino mogul and porn pioneer Gareth Brendan has money, fame, drugs, and women at his beck and call. But Gareth’s wealth has a big downside—it makes him a target for a ruthless crime syndicate who will stop at nothing to bring his empire down.The Adventurers: Full of violent revolution, sex, betrayal, greed, and political intrigue, this tale follows the life of Latin American playboy Dax Xenos—from a childhood of poverty and privation to the height of power in a dangerous, unpredictable country.Goodbye, Janette: The indomitable Tanya emerges from the horrors of WWII Europe to take the fashion world by storm—and creates an haute couture empire. One of Robbins’s most controversial and shockingly erotic novels, Goodbye, Janette is a pulp fiction classic—one that’s sure to satisfy.
Harold Robbins (1916–1997) is one of the best-selling American fiction writers of all time, ranking 5th on the World’s Best-Selling Fiction Author List just behind William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. He wrote over 25 best-selling novels, sold more than 750 million copies in 42 languages and spent over 300 weeks combined on <i>The New York Times</i> best sellers list. His books were adapted into 13 commercially successful films and also television series that garnered numerous Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® nominations starring Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones and more.The self-proclaimed "world’s best writer in plain English," Robbins wrote novels that resonated with audiences due to their graphic depictions of sex, violence, power and drugs, and the multilayered complexities of his characters, as evidenced by his best-selling novels <i>Never Love a Stranger</i>, <i>The Carpetbaggers</i>, <i>Where Love Has Gone</i>, and <i>The Adventurers</i>. He once said in an interview: "People make their own choices every day about what they are willing to do. We don’t have the right to judge them or label them. At least walk in their shoes before you do."Robbins’ personal life was as fascinating to the public as his novels. An enthusiastic participant in the social and sexual revolution of the 1960s, Robbins cultivated a "playboy" image and maintained friendships with stars including Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dino De Laurentiis, Robert Evans, Ringo Starr, Barbara Eden, Lena Horne and Quincy Jones, and was one of the first novelists to be prominently featured in gossip magazines, earning him the title of "The World’s First Rock Star Author."
