Jackie Collins, international best-selling author, returns with another fast-paced and unforgettable tale of dangerous passion and suspense, both prequel and sequel to her New York Times best seller Lethal Seduction.
Madison Castelli - the beautiful, talented, and street-smart journalist first introduced in the L.A. Connections series and Lethal Seduction - is distraught after finding out her father has been keeping secrets from her (and is possibly involved with the mob). Madison flies from New York to L.A. to visit her best friend, Natalie De Barge, a gorgeous black radio personality, but within hours they find themselves caught in a restaurant hold-up, where they are trapped in a life-or-death situation.
Meanwhile, Michael Castelli, Madison's outrageously handsome father, has been accused of two murders and flees to Las Vegas to be with Dani, the ex-showgirl mother of his other two children: Vincent, a Las Vegas hotel and casino owner, and Sofia, a wild 18-year-old.
Michael is determined to find the people who set him up and exact his revenge. And, as Madison knows, what Michael Castelli wants, Michael Castelli gets.
Deadly Embrace is full of surprises, excitement, passion and intrigue; it's a wickedly entertaining listen, brimming with the memorably raunchy characters and glamorous settings that readers and listeners have come to expect from Jackie Collins.

I have read a bunch of Ms Collins books more as a quick read, and what I call a garbage book. I do have to read a garbage book now and then and I do enjoy them but these are generally books that are a little trashy, easy to get into and easy to follow so you can read quickly and have your quick fun. This book was hard to follow as I was listening to it. Ms Collins jumps around in time and frankly she is NOT a good narrator. This was one of my least favorite books by her. It did FINALLY come together at the end but it just was not written well in my opinion.
