4.0 étoiles sur 5 A pageturner 18 février 2009
Par NoWireHangers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The name Harold Robbins brings to mind words such as "trash", "sleaze" and the like. I have only read a couple of his books and they have been of varying quality, from the awful Descent to Xanadu to the not-bad Spellbinder, and the fascinating Blood Royal (although that last one was written by Junius Podrug).

I've heard that "Where Love Has Gone" is regarded as a roman a clef about the Lana Turner/Cheryl Crane/Johnny Stompanato murder scandal. That may be true; I'm sure Robbins was inspired by it when he wrote the book. But he still makes the characters and the story his own. The narrator is Luke Carey, now happily married and expecting a baby with his wife Elizabeth. He learns that his daughter, Danielle, from his previous marriage to rich sculptress Nora Hayden. Luke goes back to San Francisco to help his daughter, whom he hasn't seen in six years. Through flashbacks we get to know the characters and their history, and Luke and Nora's miserable marriage. Luke narrates most of the book, but there are scenes where he's not present that are told in third person. The present-time story works as a frame story for the flashbacks where the real meat of the story is. And Robbins has created a great, three dimensional character in Luke, and he shows a tenderness and insight into the human nature that I haven't noticed in the other books I've read by him.

"Where Love Has Gone" is not a suspense novel, but it's still a page turner. Highly recommended. This deserves to still be in print.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 LOVE GONE WRONG 7 janvier 2011
Par M. B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Based unofficially on the then-Lana Turner/Johnny Stompanato trial that involved a knife and the daughter of the late movie star, this sordid tale follows the same track-type puzzling murder, but goes once step further by including the omitted denouement thought by all regarding the real-life case. Protagonist Luke Lurey is the ex-husband caught in the middle, whose ever-present guidance helps put the pieces back together. And what wicked pieces they end up being. Just like any scandal sheet type magazine of the time, this Harold Robbins offering is pulp fiction at its best. With its effervescent plot scheme and narratively swinging point of view, this "fictional" delivery by the man who once has been hailed as a master storyteller is one addictive read that surely will please fans of the melodrama, and that, despite the toned-down sex scenes of its time (1962).-----Martin Boucher

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Classic Novel 23 octobre 2005
Par cortezhill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Only the author of The Carpetbaggers could have written this explosive novel about the moment of truth for a group of people trapped between a disastrous past and a precarious future.

You will meet Luke Carey, who woke up one night to the telephone call that altered his entire life; Nora, his first wife, who believed that her only responsibility was to her ever hungry body; Dani their daughter, fourteen and rudderless in a glittering adult world; Marguerite Cecilia Hayden, Dani's grandmother, who could manage two huge fortunes but not her amoral daughter; and Elizabeth, Luke's second wife, who took a gamble few women would willing to take. --from book's back cover
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Suspenseful and great ending 4 octobre 2014
Par Becky - Publié sur Amazon.com

Harold Robbins claims he was inspired for this book from the Lana Turner/Johnny Stompanato/Cheryl Crane murder. I am too young to know that story. Luke Carey and his wife Elizabeth are expecting a baby any day now. And then Luke gets a phone call in the middle of the night claiming his daughter Danielle, (Dani), his daughter from his first marriage to the famous artist Nora, has just murdered her mothers live-in lover. Luke hasn't seen Dani in many years after Nora refused him to see her. Now he heads out to California to be with his daughter. Luke is haunted by good and bad memories he had with Nora and Dani. Unfortunately, some people just never change! This book is told in Luke's words yet some is done in third person when he isn't in it. The characters are so well defined and believable. The book is full of mystery and suspense. I was again, very surprised at the ending when it all came together. I love that in Harold Robbins books. I very much enjoyed this one as I did, "Never Love A Stranger." It was a page turner.

Lana Turner, Johnny Stompanato and Cheryl Crane as fiction--and as only HR could tell it. A great drama I've returned to many times.
