Read full description of the books:
They were two men bound together by their daring, their vision—and their erotic power over women.
Racecar driver Angelo Perino rose from an immigrant family to a life on the razor’s edge, where fast cars and faster women were his for the taking. Loren Hardeman is the titular head of a giant automotive empire—and of a family sliding into decadence, adultery, and destruction. In the face of opposition from Hardeman’s bitter grandson—the current president of the company—the patriarch and the driver conspire to build the world’s most advanced automobile. They call it “The Betsy,” after Hardeman’s great-granddaughter—one of the women who has also caught Perino’s eye.
From Detroit to the lavish estates of Grosse Pointe, Miami, and the Riviera, the pair of men work to create their wonder car. To achieve their dream, they will risk everything they have.
The inspiration for the 1978 film of the same name, The Betsy explores the shocking world of the automobile industry—of savage ambition, searing passion, and breathtaking fortunes won or lost in a desperate struggle for power."

Read information about the authorBorn as Harold Rubin in New York City, he later claimed to be a Jewish orphan who had been raised in a Catholic boys home. In reality he was the son of well-educated Russian and Polish immigrants. He was reared by his pharmacist father and stepmother in Brooklyn.
His first book, Never Love a Stranger (1948), caused controversy with its graphic sexuality. Publisher Pat Knopf reportedly bought Never Love a Stranger because "it was the first time he had ever read a book where on one page you'd have tears and on the next page you'd have a hard-on".
His 1952 novel, A Stone for Danny Fisher, was adapted into a 1958 motion picture King Creole, which starred Elvis Presley.
He would become arguably the world's bestselling author, publishing over 20 books which were translated into 32 languages and sold over 750 million copies. Among his best-known books is The Carpetbaggers, loosely based on the life of Howard Hughes,taking the reader from New York to California, from the prosperity of the aeronautical industry to the glamor of Hollywood.
