Thirty-four years ago, Harold Robbins enthralled millions of readers with The Carpetbaggers, the most popular novel ever written about the early days of Hollywood. Now, in The Raiders, he continues his phenomenal story. Tormented by dreams of his late father, Jonas Cord vowed his relationship with his own illegitimate son, Bat, will be different. But the Cord family conflict continues as Jonas moves his billion-dollar enterprise to Las Vegas - taking on the mob, and taking into bed a beautiful woman with a secret past, and through it all his son and daughter vie to exceed him in every way - in and out of bed. The Raiders the most explosive, hard-hitting novel yet from the world's favourite bestselling novelist.
