The Predators combines in one novel the finest attributes of A Stone for Danny Fisher and The Carpetbaggers. It will take you on a wild odyssey through the gaudy and reckless life of Jerry Cooper--his struggles to survive in Depression-era New York, his years in Europe during the Second World War, his friends, his lovers, his life in organized crime, and his entrance into the world of high-powered international business. The Predators is the defining work of Harold Robbins's spectacular career.

From the Publisher:

Praise for The Predators:

"He was certainly my big inspiration. Really successful writers give their readers a world they know intimately, and Harold certainly knows his world. From his luxurious yachts in the south of France to his lavish jet-set parties, Harold was king. He was larger than life and a real charmer. I will miss him and his ferocious talent. But his books will go on entertaining forever." --Jackie Collins

"This tour de force details the reckless life of Jerry Cooper, an orphan who survives the Depression, World War II, and the world of organized crime." --Cosmopolitan

"Robbins's dialogue is moving...his people have the warmth of life." --The New York Times

"Robbins's books are packed with action, sustained by a strong narrative drive, and given vitality by his own colorful life." --Wall Street Journal

"Robbins grabs the reader and doesn't let go." --Publishers Weekly

"Grabs you hard from page one and never lets go! Over the past fifty years, Harold Robbins has shown two generations of readers and writers 'how it's done.' With The Predators, he's ready to show a third." --Lincoln Child, coauthor of Reliquary

"One hell of a story...Robbins sure has caused a lot of readers a lot of sleepless nights by his compelling tales. He's done it again!" --David Hagberg, author of Assassin

"This no-holds-barred Robbins tale sweeps swiftly across decades and continents to deliver an earthly last hurrah that should please his many fans everywhere." --Walter Wager, author of Die Hard

About the Author:

Born in 1916 in New York City, Harold Robbins was a millionaire by the time he was twenty. He lost his fortune by speculating on the price of sugar before the outbreak of World War II. Later, his fabulously successful career as a novelist, with many of his books turned into movies, would once again make him incredibly wealthy. For many years, Robbins enjoyed the high life among the rich and famous; he owned a huge yacht and had houses on the French Riviera and in Beverly Hills. His novels often mirrored his own experiences and were often people with the characters he had met. He died at the age of eighty-one, survived by his wife, Jann, and his two daughters, Caryn and Andreana.
