“From the provocative opening sentence (“When retired police chief James Scarberry heard in July 2009 that Ben Novack Jr. had been brutally murdered, with his eyes gouged out, he was not surprised.”), true-crime veteran Glatt grabs the reader’s attention. With a perfect amount of detail, he traces the sad life of Novack—whose father, Ben Sr., founded Miami Beach’s legendary Fountainebleau Hotel—from an unhappy childhood to his death in 2009 at the age of 53. . . . This gripping account is proof that truth can be stranger—and far more disturbing—than fiction.” —Publishers Weekly
“One of the finest true crime craftsmen writing today.” —Harold Goldberg, VH1.com
Praise for The Royal House of Monaco:
“How do you say ‘juicy’ in French.” —People Magazine
“A real guilty Pleasure.” —Entertainment Weekly
English-born JOHN GLATT is the author of twenty books, and has over thirty years of experience as an investigative journalist in England and America. He divides his time between New York and London.
