ABOUT THIS BOOK

Through the suites and foyers of the St. Gregory Hotel in New Orleans move a host of vividly drawn characters – the hotel industry tycoons, the guests, the staff, men and women, young and old, the totally dedicated, the utterly amoral. There is robbery and blackmail, a near-disastrous orgy, a take-over battle and a love story that you will never forget. ‘Catches the reader by his lapels and pulls him through to the last page.
