Here's a first look at Jackie Collins's new Santangelo novel in hardcover or digital from St. Martin's Press called, well, THE SANTANGELOS.
"A vicious hit, a vengeful enemy, a drug addled Colombian club owner and a sex crazed Italian family ...the ever powerful Lucky Santangelo has to deal with them all. Meanwhile Max - her teenage daughter - is becoming the "It" girl in Europe's modeling world. And her Kennedyesque son, Bobby, is being set up for a murder he didn't commit. But Lucky can deal. Always strong and unpredictable, with her husband Lennie by her side, she lives up to the family motto - Never fuck with a Santangelo. Lucky rules ...the Santangelos always come out on top. The Santangelos is an epic family saga filled with love, lust, revenge and passion."
Though I'm a little behind on my Collins reading (shame on me!) I expect nothing but great things from this big-ass sizzler (500 + pages). U.S. release date: June 16 2015. U.K. readers get it two weeks earlier. Also, St. Martin's Press will release in May an omnibus of two Lucky Santangelo earlier novels, THE GODDESS OF VENGEANCE (2011) and DROP DEAD BEAUTIFUL (2007) in paperback or digital, just to get us in the mood.
Lastly, just got word that Jackie's next novel will be called THE BITCHES OF BEVERLY HILLS. Again, an eye-catching title. More on that one later.
UPDATE: Looks like UK readers will have to wait a little longer for the release of THE SANTANGELOS. It has been pushed back to September 10/'15.
