Poor little bitch girl [sound recording]
Jackie Collins
Adult Fiction COLLINS

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

At 72, with 26 bestsellers under her belt, Collins (Drop Dead Beautiful) prowls familiar terrain with this overheated tale of the filthy rich, nasty poor, and cravenly ambitious. Collins picks up the saga of the Santangelos with spoiled-brat Annabelle Maestro, the daughter of two Tinseltown icons, who runs a high-priced call-girl ring in New York with her coke-sniffing nogoodnik boyfriend, Frankie. Annabelle's mom's murder brings the black sheep home to L.A. to mourn for a parent she never loved-and to lean on the adventurous Denver, a quick-witted, sex-starved lawyer who's defending the No. 1 suspect in the murder, Annabelle's dad, film legend Ralph Maestro. But Denver also juggles the rescue of his missing best friend, Carolyn, who's fooling around with a horn dog U.S. senator, and a few hot one-night stands. For all the convoluted connections, mismatches, and throw-away references to ripped-from-the-headlines news and celebrities, Collins is at her seasoned best with this raunchy, retro hot-sheets romance. "It's men, dollface," one brassy Hollywood agent muses. "They all spew forth the same tired old lines." As does Collins. And it's impossible not to fall for it. Again. (Feb.)

From Library Journal:

Collins's ( 27th novel follows Married Lovers (2008), also available from Macmillan Audio and BBC Audiobooks America. Here, four old acquaintances-L.A.-based attorney Denver Jones; Carolyn Henderson, personal assistant and mistress to a married senator in Washington; New York madame-to-the-stars Annabelle Maestro; and Greek shipping heir Bobby Santangelo (son of Lucky)-are unexpectedly reunited when Annabelle's movie-star mother is found murdered. Collins herself reads, along with Allison Daugherty, Lara Hirner, and John Bedford Lloyd; all do a bang-up job with this classic Collins material rife with romance and intrigue. The voice of Denver, from whose point of view the story is narrated, is especially effective. Collins's many fans will not be dis-appointed. [Includes a bonus interview with the author; see Prepub Alert, LJ 10/15/09; the St. Martin's hc, which published in February, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Mary Knapp, Madison P.L., WI (c) Copyright 2010.
