A luxurious yacht in the Sea of Cortez, a birthday cruise for one of the world's most beautiful women and an invitation no one can refuse.    The Power Trip-- take it if you dare.

From Hollywood icon and mega-seller Jackie Collins comes a thrilling new novel,  The Power Trip , set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas.  A tropical getaway with a cast of global power-hungry elites turns sour when they find out maybe they don't control as much of the world as they thought . . .

In  The Power Trip  you will meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, a billionaire Russian oligarch, as he sets sail on  The Bianca . You'll meet his sexy supermodel girlfriend, whom  The Bianca  is named after, and five dynamic, powerful, and famous couples invited on the yacht's maiden voyage: Hammond Patterson, a driven Senator, and his lovely but unhappy wife, Sierra; Cliff Baxter, a charming, never-married movie star, and his ex-waitress girlfriend, Lori; Taye Sherwin, a famous black UK footballer and his interior designer wife, Ashley; Luca Perez, a male Latin singing sensation with his older decadent English boyfriend, Jeromy; and Flynn, a maverick journalist with his Asian renegade female friend, Xuan.

You will also meet Russian mobster, Sergei Zukov, a man with a grudge against Aleksandr. And Sergei's Mexican beauty queen girlfriend, Ina, whose brother, Cruz, is a master pirate with orders to hold  The Bianca  and its illustrious rota of guests for ransom.

The Power Trip  explorers the decadent playgrounds of the super-rich . . . and leaves you hungry for more.

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.
