"Robbins grabs the reader and doesn't let go " Publishers Weekly "His characters are compelling, his dialogue is dramatic, and his style is simple and straightforward." The LA Times From the depths of the poverty-stricken West Virginia coal mines to the heights of power as one of the nation's most prominent and feared labor organizers, "Big Dan" Huggins is a hero worthy of Harold Robbins' attention. After its release in 1979, Memories of Another Day spent 24 weeks on The New York Times best sellers list, topping the list at #1 and now it's available for digital download. Recognized as one of the world's most captivating storytellers, Robbins has written what is arguably the most significant book ever published about the rise of the labor unions in America. Born to a life of violence and tragedy, Dan becomes one of the most powerful and dangerous labor organizers in the country at the expense of his personal relationships. He's a man who embraced violence, fierce ambition, lust and a deep hunger for justice even as he accumulated personal wealth, fame and power. The novel opens at Dan's funeral, where his estranged son Jonathan is relieved by his father's death. But Jonathan is quickly thrust into his father's role and must return to his father's origins to better understand the man who shaped his past and continues to shape his future. Looking into the lives and childhoods of both father and son, Memories of Another Day gives a close look into the perks and costs of power. Robbins' gift for combining popular fiction with the most pertinent subjects of the twentieth century allowed him to create a snapshot in time. In this novel, Robbins creates a magnificent epic portrait of fifty years of the bitter birth and tarnished maturity of American labor. Relevant, respectful, and engaging, Memories of Another Day proves once again why Harold Robbins' books have sold more copies than almost any other American writer in history

Cesare Cardinale is an amoral, aristocratic Italian playboy an entrepreneur and race car driver who wants for nothing whether it's fast cars, beautiful women, or orgies of debauchery. Cesare, however, has two dirty secrets: First, he has a penchant for violence that borders on the sadistic and sociopathic; second, he owes his extravagant life to a Sicilian Mafia don, creating a seemingly perfect relationship as he leads a double life as a Mafia assassin. But when Cesare is ordered to murder four U.S. government witnesses in protective custody, he attracts the attention of a mysterious special agent who will stop at nothing to bring the crime syndicate down. Soon Cesare is engaged in a lethal game of cat-and-mouse against both an adversary who is more than his match, as he understands what makes Cesare tick, and the Mafia, who fears he might talk. From the author of The New York Times #1 best-selling novel The Carpetbaggers comes a story about the Mafia, written when American leaders like J. Edgar Hoover were still skeptical about the existence of an Italian-American organized crime network or the Cosa Nostra . Published a decade earlier, this novel inspired books like Mario Puzo's The Godfather and helped ignite American pop culture's insatiable fascination with the Mafia that continues today

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. In this book, Harold Robbins tells of the trial of Maryann Flood, a 'model' at 79 Park Avenue, who has been arrested on charges of procurement, bribery and blackmail; and of the dilemma of Mike Keyes, who is conducting the prosecution. For fate seems to have played against Mike in offering him a chance of advancement in his career, which he would dearly like to take, through the trial of the woman he loves and who loves him. Here is a brilliantly-told 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
A stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins( Book )
122 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A stone for Danny Fisher is the story of a young man who did not start at the bottom. Born into a family of modest means and respectability, Danny Fisher was gradually driven downward into the world of crime, racketeering and poverty. His bitterness, his homesickness over the loss of the house in Brooklyn that was given to him for his eighth birthday, and his feud with his harsh father, pulled him one way; his natural decency and his love for a sweet Italian girl, Nellie Petito, pulled him another. Danny was a boxer--a sensational amateur and potential champion--and he might have gone straight had the fight promoters not tried to exert pressure. He could not escape the gangsters, and later he became deeply involved in the black market and then in slot-machine rackets. Nevertheless, the driving force behind Danny's actions was always his sustaining love for Nellie. In a story that is harsh yet tender, realistic and yet compassionate, Harold Robbins reveals what makes the Danny Fishers what they are
