Kurzbeschreibung

From the author of The New York Times #1 best-selling novel The Carpetbaggers comes a story of a tragic love triangle between Marja Fluudjincki (aka Maryann Flood), an ambitious and sensual young woman from the slums who is forced into prostitution, but reinvents herself as an elegant Park Avenue madam; Mike Keyes, a hardworking, honest man who works his way up to Assistant District Attorney and is the only man Marja ever loved; and Ross Drego, who introduces her to money and the gambler’s world of Joker Martin, and is willing to pay any price for her. And does.

79 Park Avenue starts on the seedy streets of inner NYC and ends on luxurious Park Avenue. Over time, Marja claws her way from street urchin to stripper—ultimately becoming the madam of a Mob-owned pleasure empire. Marja—now known as Maryann—provides access to the city’s most exciting and sensual “escorts.” But when Maryann runs afoul of the law, endangering her empire and angering the Mob, she must face an ambitious prosecutor who stands to benefit by bringing down the call girl ring. However, unbeknownst to the indefatigable ADA Mike Keyes, fate has dealt him a devastating blow. The madam he’s been chasing, Maryann Flood, is none other than the love of his life who has repeatedly broken his heart, Marja Fluudjincki.

Does he set aside his personal feelings for the sake of justice, or fall under Maryann’s seductive spell, betraying his life’s work? Knowing that Maryann is unafraid to use seduction to get what she wants, will Mike fall prey to her charm and violate his solid sense of justice?

Harold Robbins presents a vision of post-WWII New York that is as common now in shows like Revenge as it was then—a stark reminder that corruption, greed, and vengeance are timeless. Spending 12 weeks on The New York Times best sellers list, this novel tells a sizzling story of sexuality, power, and lust that inspired the 1977 Golden Globe®-winning miniseries of the same name.

About the Author


Harold Robbins (1916–1997) is one of the best-selling American fiction writers of all time, ranking 5th on the World’s Best-Selling Fiction Author List just behind William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. He wrote over 25 best-selling novels, sold more than 750 million copies in 42 languages and spent over 300 weeks combined on The New York Times best sellers list. His books were adapted into 13 commercially successful films and also television series that garnered numerous Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Primetime Emmy® nominations starring Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis, Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones and more.

The self-proclaimed “world’s best writer in plain English,” Robbins wrote novels that resonated with audiences due to their graphic depictions of sex, violence, power and drugs, and the multilayered complexities of his characters, as evidenced by his best-selling novels Never Love a Stranger, The Carpetbaggers, Where Love Has Gone, and The Adventurers. He once said in an interview: “People make their own choices every day about what they are willing to do. We don’t have the right to judge them or label them. At least walk in their shoes before you do.”

Robbins’ personal life was as fascinating to the public as his novels. An enthusiastic participant in the social and sexual revolution of the 1960s, Robbins cultivated a “playboy” image and maintained friendships with stars including Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dino De Laurentiis, Robert Evans, Ringo Starr, Barbara Eden, Lena Horne and Quincy Jones, and was one of the first novelists to be prominently featured in gossip magazines, earning him the title of “The World’s First Rock Star Author.”

Synopsis

Behind this memorable story of the turning point in the lives of two lovers, one risen from the gutter and the other unashamedly drifting towards it, lies the ugly background of the seamy side of New York life. Maryann Flood, a 'model' at 79 Park Avenue, has been arrested on charges of procurement, bribery and blackmail. Mike Keynes is conducting the prosecution but fate seems to have played against him in offering the long sought-after chance of advancement in his career, through the trial of the woman he loves and who loves him. A harrowing story of the love of two people trying to bridge the gap between the law and the New York underworld, under the shadow of the sordid reign of prostitution.

5.0 von 5 Sternen coming of age book for a majority of the 60's youth. 31. Juli 2004
Von Dasrite Jack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Story line is following the complicated life of a hooker in the NYC redlight district (Murry Hill neighborhood has changed considerably.)

I read this book 35 years ago. I was only 15 and I had to read it a paragraph at a time as I sneaked it out from under my brother's mattress. Spell bound and eyes gluded to the pages, I made it to the end. Thus, my first experience with a truly erotic story.

I later found out that EVERYONE had or eventually would read this book. It had only been out about 9 years at that time (1970) and had already shaped -- or rather open the eyes of American Youth more than the Kinsey Report.

This book is a classic (even though purists may label it trash.) It is well written, sensitive and highly erotic, even compared with today's explicit standards. I recommond it to anyone wanting to enjoy a good read or delve into the history of what helped cause a generation to change it's intire code of morals in one direction while moveing ethics in the opposite. It is books like this; aimed at the masses - that move people to revolution, change, and growth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Robbins' transition novel is an entertaining read 11. Dezember 2013
Von Charles Castel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
79 Park Avenue is the fast moving tale of Marja Flood who rises from poverty in Depression era New York City to become the mob backed successful madame in post WWII NYC. The novel is a transition work for Harold Robbins who in his early works focused on the struggles of growing up in Depression NYC to later on dealing more overtly with sexual themes with characters that are composites of famous individuals. In 79 Park Avenue, one character, Ross, can be seen as being based, in part, on famous mobster and founder of Las Vegas, Bugsy Siegel. Story is fast moving and you can't put the book down until it's done. While the story doesn't have the emotional depth and impact as his previous novel, A Stone for Danny Fisher, 79 Park Avenue is one entertaining read and a fine way to close what the author would later call his "Depression in New York Trilogy".

5.0 von 5 Sternen As excellent as I remember 11. August 2012
Von Shako - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read a Harold Robins novel after probably 25+ years. I remember, as a teenager how enthralled I was with his writing and the sex in them. 25 years later his novel is even better than I can recollect. No doubt he is a master story-teller and the oozing sexuality is still there. A breath-taking novel. I am awaiting more of his titles in the kindle format.
