Harold Robbins once said, "For me, the goal is always to make the page disappear and speak to my reader face to face as each character comes to life." The 1962 novel that rocked Hollywood to its core is finally back in print. Ripped from the headlines, Where Love Has Gone is inspired by the real-life murder of Johnny Stompanato, Lana Turner's lover, who was allegedly stabbed by the actress' daughter. Luke Carey has a wife and a baby on the way. His future looks bright ... until his past catches up with him unexpectedly. A phone call in the dead of night summons him back to San Francisco to help his fourteen-year-old daughter Danielle, whom he hasn't seen in six years. But helping Danielle means he may have to face his ex-wife Nora-a prospect Luke is none too eager to explore.The inspiration for the 1964 blockbuster film starring Bette Davis.

About the author (2010)

Harold Robbins was born in New York City on May 21, 1916. He later claimed to be a Jewish orphan who had been raised in a Catholic boys' home, but in reality he was raised in Brooklyn by his father and stepmother. He made his first million at the age of twenty by selling sugar for wholesale trade. By the beginning of World War II, he lost all his fortunes. He eventually moved to Hollywood and worked for Universal Pictures. His first book, Never Love a Stranger, was published in 1948. He began writing full time in 1957. He published more than 20 books during his lifetime including The Dream Merchants (1949), The Betsy (1971), The Storyteller (1982), and The Carpetbaggers (1961). His novel, A Stone for Danny Fisher (1951), was adapted into a 1958 motion picture King Creole starring Elvis Presley. He died from respiratory heart failure on October 14, 1997 at the age of 81. Since his death, several new books have been published, written by ghostwriters and based on his notes and unfinished stories.
