Friction.  Mafia turmoil.  Hollywood snakes and Wall Street vipers.  That’s what Jed Stephens has got.  And a body.  …Or, he would, if a certain species of vicious little fish couldn’t strip a corpse bare in under a minute.    

Jed should have known better when his shady cousin insisted they take a trip down the Amazon, to see the sights and check out the local color…  Jed can’t say he’s surprised when their scenic Amazonian vacation turns into an enormous coca leaf buy. 

And that’s just the beginning.

About the author (2010)

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.
