Set on a luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, this tropical getaway with a cast of power-hungry elites turns sour when they find out maybe they don't control as much of the world as they thought. Aleksandr Kasianenko is a billionaire Russian oligarch and Bianca is his sexy supermodel girlfriend, and the yacht's namesake. Five powerful and famous couples are invited on the yacht's maiden voyage: a senator and his lovely but unhappy wife, a very attractive movie star and his needy ex-waitress girlfriend, a famous black footballer and his interior designer wife, a male Latin singing sensation and his older English boyfriend, and a maverick writer with his Asian journalist female friend. Russian mobster Sergei Zukov is a man with a grudge against Aleksandr. And the brother of Ina, Sergei's Mexican beauty queen girlfriend, is a master pirate with orders to hold The Bianca and its illustrious guests for ransom

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: Another fun summer read from Jackie Collins. Interesting characters who like a puzzle all seem to fit together at the end! Good modern story which moves along quickly.

This is only my 2nd Jackie Collins book. I loved it. She introduced me to the characters as if I was standing next to her. I loved the diversity! She was my luxury vacation. I read this book in two days. Could not put it down!!

Was not impressed with this book. The action didn't take place till the last 4 chapters which was fast - glad i didn't buy it - certainly not worth the money.
