What can I tell you about CHANCES? Well first off, I loved writing this book. It was a total joy from start to finish, but worth every hard working day. In CHANCES you get to meet Gino 'The Ram,' who was one of my most favorite characters to write. And of course the crazy, wild, fiercely independent Lucky, Gino's irascible daughter. CHANCES ranges in time from 1921 to 1977, so expect to take quite a trip! CNN called CHANCES - "The Godfather goes to bed." Love it!
A private jet begins its descent towards JFK, bringing home Gino Santangelo, self-made millionaire and self-exiled mob boss.
A green Cadillac heads into Harlem, driven by Carrie Berkeley, a society wife with a hidden past which needs to stay hidden.
In an office building, a young prosecuting attorney, Steven Berkeley, is putting the finishing touches to an intricate, career-defining case. Tired and exhilarated, he rides the elevator down.
Also in the elevator is Lucky Santangelo, firebrand daughter of Gino and substitute head of the crime family.
And then the power cuts out, plunging New York City into darkness.
And so begins CHANCES, the steamy epic which introduces us to one of Jackie Collins' greatest heroines, Lucky Santangelo.
