The world's bestselling novelist is back with Never Enough, a new novel of fast and loose trading, of stocks as well as sexual partners, following the rise and fall of New York power broker David Shea. When David Shea, a high powered Wall Street investment banker blows off his twenty-fifth high school reunion, he essentially turns his back on his past. David was shielded from a horrific crime he committed in his youth by his father's power and prestige, going on to great success while managing to avoid every bad break. But in a life of big money payoffs, potentially lethal pitfalls, and legal wrangling, fate is bound to get the upper hand at least once.
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.
