Descent From Xanadu (Hardcover)
An action-packed tale of sex, power, risk, betrayal, obsession, espionage, and discovery that could only have come from the mind of the one and only Harold Robbins....
Ruthless, unscrupulous, devastatingly handsome, and insatiable, Judd Crane, the richest man in the world, has everything a man could want in life-an endless supply of money, women, power, and sex. But despite his vast riches, he realizes that there is one thing he cannot escape... death.
From the author of The New York Times #1 best-selling novel The Carpetbaggers comes a tale of mankind's fiercest obsession-immortality. Determined to cheat death, Judd embarks on a dangerous trek across the globe, from Yugoslavia to China, from the sheltered paradise of a lush private island to a secret atomic city in the jungles of Brazil. Along the way, he will stop at nothing to find what he's looking for-including chancing death, endangering his fortune, outmaneuvering foreign agents, and, ultimately, risking both his business empire and the woman he loves-until the very last second, when he discovers the most vital secret of all.
With over 16 weeks on The New York Times bestsellers list, this novel of intrigue, decadence, and ruthless determination is pure storytelling-sure to keep you turning pages.
