Set in the aviation industry and Hollywood in the 1930s, it is said the lead protaganist Jonas Cord is based on Bill Lear and Howard Hughes. It is the original sex and money blockbuster: a cracking story driven relentlessly forward by the sheer power and boldness of Robbins' writing.Hide synopsis

This is a book loosely based on the tycoon Howard Hughes whose excesses can make an incorrigible womanizer blush.
This book weaves together a story of avaricious businessmen, promiscuous women, ruthless criminals competing in a jungle where the shrewd and robust predators vanquish the hapless prey.
This book can be consigned to the trash heap of popular fiction. This book is a stigma in the world of literature. Indecency has crossed the threshold and reached its nadir.
This is the worst Harold Robbins book i have ever come across which has the sole effect of stirring up the concupiscence and baser primal instincts of human beings.
In my opinion it is tragic that this book was ever published.
Never read such perversely prurient literature.
