Deadly Embrace - Jackie Collins

Deadly Embraceis another slice off the huge bland loaf of story that is Jackie Collins' ... more

stock in trade. Madison Castelli--the streetwise
reporter who has featured in five other Collins
novels--is taken hostage in a smart LA restaurant
by three Russian skinheads who seem to have more
plans than is entirely consistent with their gross
stupidity. Meanwhile, her half-brother Vincent is
on the brink of murderous jealousy in Vegas and
her sister Sofia is avoiding rape in Spain; above
all, their father Michael is coping with being
accused of the murder of his wife and is on the
run from the police and his past. Michael Castelli
is the most interesting character here, someone
who has drifted in and out of criminality the same
way he has drifted in and out of love. Collins
writes--not well, but convincingly--about
obsession and vindictiveness; she also has some
sense of how the sheer business of life makes some
people let issues slide for decades at a time.
This is a book which preaches the virtues of
intelligence and emotional control, yet its
story-telling is all over the place--most of the
plot issues stop at a place marker rather than
coming to any conclusion. Collins can do the
glamour of the celebrity culture, but she is
worryingly caught up in its emotional vapidity.
