Continuing the phenomenal story in The Betsy, The Stallion reintroduces the Hardeman family and the cut-throat world of their vast automobile empire, where the stakes are high and every man, and woman, is a gambler. Loren Hardeman, known as 'Number One', is gradually transferring control of Bethlehem Motors to his grandson, Loren Hardeman III - a man possessed with his father's cunning, but sadly lacking in his ability to go for the kill. So when Angelo Perino, an outsider previously nurtured by 'Number One', threatens the position held by Hardeman III, what ensues is a battle of wills in which integrity takes a backseat to animal instinct, and in which there can only be one winner. Bursting with huge ingredients of lust, greed, sex and intrigue - and a plot full of twists and double-crosses - this is Harold Robbins at his sizzling best.
As a teenager, Danny Fisher had all he ever wanted -- a dog, a grown-up summer job, flirtatious relationships with older women -- and a talent for ruthless boxing that quickly made him a star in the amateur sporting world. But when Danny's family falls on hard times, moving from their comfortable home in Brooklyn to Manhattan's squalid Lower East Side, he is forced to leave his carefree childhood behind. Facing poverty and daily encounters with his violent, anti-Semitic neighbors, Danny must fight both inside and outside the ring just to survive.
As his boxing becomes legendary in the city's seedy underworld, packed with wiseguys and loose women, everyone seems to want a hand in Danny's success. Robbins's colorful, fast-talking characters evoke the rough streets of Depression-era New York City. Ronnie, a prostitute ashamed of how far she's fallen and desperately in need of friendship; Sam, a slick bookie who wants to profit from Danny's boxing talent; and Nellie, a beautiful but lonely girl who refuses to believe Danny is beyond redemption -- each of whom has a different vision of Danny's future -- will help steer his rocky course.
Gritty, compelling, and groundbreaking for its time, "A Stone for Danny Fisher" is a tale of ambition, hope, and violence set in a distinct and dangerous period of American history. A classic, sexy bestseller by Harold Robbins, reintroduced to a whole new generation of readers.
Attacked, damned, praised and read around the world, THE CARPETBAGGERS was first published in 1961 and shelved high enough that the kids couldn't get their hands on it. Set in the aviation industry and Hollywood in the 1930s, it is said the lead protaganist Jonas Cord is based on Bill Lear and Howard Hughes. It is the original sex and money blockbuster: a cracking story driven relentlessly forward by the sheer power and boldness of Robbins' writing.
"Justice, as well as Mercy, is an attribute to God Himself, and His Church is its Dispenser... And if Justice, then Social Justice." So begins Harold Robbins' essay on Catholic Social Teaching. With clarity and erudition Robbins draws from various sources in the Christian tradition to distill his principles, principles which were to serve as the foundation for the school of economic thought known as Distributism. The success of his effort was affirmed by none other than Dorothy Day, who claimed that The Sun of Justice "contains the best thinking ever done on Distributism." Originally published in 1938, this edition represents an effort to restore this long-lost treasure to contemporary audiences.
Nick Cutter--starting with nothing--crosses oceans and continents

Win Liberte has it all. He prides himself on never having worked a
day in his life. He has everything he wants-fast cars, beautiful

eleven, Win inherited an international diamond business that is
managed by his uncle.
Art investigator Madison Dupre knows a fake when she sees it. When the mysterious Dr. Kaseem offers to pay her a handsome sum to "ransom" a scarab stolen from the tomb of King Tut, her gut tells her to walk away. Since she still needs to pay the rent, Madison throws caution to wind and prepares to search for the Heart of Egypt.
Before she can pack a suitcase, she finds herself framed for murder and on the run. Her leads take her to Stonehenge, England, where a Druid sex cult worships a "goddess of love," a woman with enough personal wealth to buy a host of admirers. Madison finds an admirer of her own in Rafi al-Din, an Egyptian antiquities investigator she knows she can't trust, but who arouses her passions.
Drawn to Egypt in search of the scarab, Madison is trapped in the land of the Pharaohs when her passport is seized at the airport. She knows she is being played by Kaseem, who believes the Heart has the power to galvanize the masses to support his secret cause.
From the famed Khan marketplace, to the Valley of the Kings and the incredible colossi at Abu Simbel, Madison treads a careful path among tomb robbers, assassins, and political fanatics. She must dodge curses both ancient and modern to stay alive.
