Scarcely a single aspect of human frailty and degradation is absent from this stark tale. From the moment the tragic childhood of an unwanted orphan ended, a life on unceasing crime began - motivated always by the hungry lust for power that drives men to violent death. Here is a brilliant expose of a city strangled by the every-reaching tentacles of vicious gangsters and corrupt politicians. But throughout this saga of violence runs the redeeming thread of a harsh yet tender passion for a woman whose love for Frankie never ceased.Read Less

I read this book several years ago. I remember that I enjoyed it very much. A friend and I recently discussed books written by Harold Robbins, and I mentioned "Never Love A Stranger" to her. She had never read it. The copy that I owned was very yellow and a few pages are loose. Since the story was so good, I think that I would like to read it again one day, which is why I looked to Alibris to find a good copy of it for me. I will give my friend the old copy to read and dispose of when she is finished.
I know that this is not a typical "review," but wanted you to know that it is an excellent story.

Great story - not what you would expect from Harold Robbins. If you liked Stone for Danny Fisher, you will like this one. Highly recommended for anyone interested in WWII and pre WWII era fiction.
