Publisher's Summary

The dangerously beautiful Lucky Santangelo, star of two of Jackie Collins' previous international number-one best-sellers, returns in Lady Boss. In Chances, Lucky grew up in a top crime family. In Lucky, she was married three times. And now, in Lady Boss, she takes on Hollywood and wins!

Panther Studios is the prize and Lucky wants it. In her quest for power she meets adversaries and enemies, friends and betrayers. And her relationship with her husband, charismatic comedian and movie star Lennie Golden, is put to the test.

Lucky's first challenge is to buy the only movie studio still not controlled by a powerful conglomerate: Panther Studios, owned by the retired, irascible, Abe Panther. But Abe won't sell his beloved studio to Lucky until she proves she has the guts to make it in Hollywood. It's his idea that she disguise herself as a secretary and go in undercover to find out what's really going on. It's a challenge that also satisfies Lucky's passion for adventure - and her desire to take chances. In the process, Lucky uncovers a world of financial scheming, big-time betrayal, and bizarre sex.

When Lucky makes her final move, assuming the role of Lady Boss at Panther Studios, she stuns the entire industry and sets off a series of shock waves, not only threatening her marriage to Lennie but bringing down on her head the hatred of crime boss Carlos Bonnatti - a hatred that goes back generations, putting in peril her life and the lives of everyone close to her.

With Lady Boss, Jackie Collins brings back one of her most intriguing and endearing characters. She also proves once again that she is the unquestioned queen of glamorous fiction.

Critic Reviews

"Collins's raunchy effervescence has a moral edge, making butts of male arrogance and vanity, and urging Hollywood to say no to films that hawk sexism and brutality." ( Publishers Weekly)
