Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Straight-from-the-hip dialogue, designer clothing and gangsters are all reliably in place in Collins's fourth novel to feature the Santangelo family, particularly Lucky, who now heads a Hollywood studio. In previous exploits, this multitalented heroine has been married three times, built Vegas hotels, run a shipping empire and killed for revenge (as one character comments, "she's had quite a life"). Along the way, she's made her share of enemies, not least of whom is Donna Landsman?formerly Donatella Bonnatti?who here stages a hostile takeover of Panther Studios, has Santangelo patriarch Gino shot and makes it appear as though Lucky's beloved husband, Lennie Golden, is killed on location in Corsica following a night's indiscretion. Mourning does not become Lucky, however, and all too soon she's involving herself with chauvinistic director Alex Woods (he of the "smile like a crocodile?wide, captivating, and ultimately deadly") even as Lennie is imprisoned in a Sicilian cave. When Lucky learns what she needs to know, however, the novel's subtitle comes into play, brutally. Collins's dialogue strains belief ("Ohmigod! she gasped, clinging to Nona. "Ohmigod! No! No! NOOO!"), and she can express scarcely a sentence, a sentiment or a plot spin without resorting to cliche. As a vision of Hollywood and the mob, this novel is utterly outclassed by Mario Puzo's The Last Don. But its very lack of class and those very cliches make this an easy, nasty read, just the qualities that have previously pushed Collins to the top of the charts and will likely do so again.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read every Jackie Collins book she's written, but this one seems like an imitation of an imitation. Where is the freshness? Hollywood seems old and tired and so do all of the characters. They all still live back in 1975, I guess. Maybe Jackie has changed or maybe I have, but I got so hung up on the awful writing that I couldn't get into the plot, and didn't care about any of the characters who are still thinking about sex just as they did in 1975-- nothing seems to have changed. The characters still "give head" and the men still think the length of their you know what means anything. Whoa, Jackie. It's 1997. People think twice before passing bodily fluids. The Mafia is boring and "Donnatella" (villainess) doesn't light my fire. I certainly don't care whether Lucky prevails or not-- and maybe she should comb her "wild mane" of hair, which is about the only description that Collins bothers to give of her, other than that she's gorgeous, of course. All of Collins' characters each have about 4 characteristics that drive them-- i.e., ambition, greed, lust and sexual attractiveness. That's it. That's all there is. Read carefully and you can see this for yourself-- they do not do one thing that isn't caused by one of those four characteristics the author has given them. Everything they say or do is driven by ambition, lust, etc. etc. This makes for a lot of characters who are like wind-up dolls. I gave this book a generous 4 because some of Jackie's earlier books did give me a lot of enjoyment, but maybe that was because it was back in 1977. Oh, by the way, Jackie still gives good author photo. She looks twice as good as she did on her first books when she was 20 or 25 years younger. Must be something in the water out there..

VENDETTA: LUCKY'S REVENGE, is the 4th in a series of books about Lucky Santangelo, daughter of an italian "businessman" who had ties with the mafia. In this novel, Lucky experiences a series of bad luck, not realizing til much later that this was not bad luck, but an old nemesis Donna Donnatelli Bonnatti taking revenge on the family and on Lucky for murdering Donna's husband Enzio. Lucky's movie studio is taken over by an unknown business woman, and her husband Lennie Goldman is reported missing and dead. It does appear to be bad luck but it takes some heavy duty sleuthing for Lucky to figure out what is really going on. In between this main plot, there are sub plots with various hollywood-type characters. The action never stops, as is typical in any Jackie Collins book.
If you are looking for some fast action, you won't go wrong with LUCKY'S REVENGE.

By A Customer on October 3, 1998
Format: Hardcover
Lucky Santangelo is a woman not to reckon with, and she is back in yet again, another blockbuster from superstar author Jackie Collins. This time, after loosing her husband and her studio, Lucky sets out to rebuilt her life and regain her statut as «Lady Boss».
Bringing back characters from her previous novels, and introducing us to new ones, Collins not only succeeds in penning another blockbuster, but also re-establishes herself as the queen of popular fiction. VENDETTA : Lucky's Revenge is Collins at her best. Well crafted, suspensful, steamy, it keeps the reader glued to the pages and makes you wish Collins would write a fifth book about the Santangelo clan, which, by the way, is exactly what she's doing.

I always enjoy the Santangelo saga! Been a while since I read one but it did not disappoint! Great characters, very, very graphic as usual and lots of twists and turns. Sex and deceit go hand in hand and you find yourself caught up in the story hoping the characters do or don't do certain things! Love it when a story holds my interest like this one did. Very racy so be prepared for that too!

Rereading Jackie Collins' series on the Santangelos has been my guilty pleasure since the summer. Okay, so there has been no guilt whatsoever. It all started when I found out JC had released a new Santangelo book; then I realized that I was three books behind, with Vendetta being the last that I'd read. It had been so long since I read the series that I just decided to start all over, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. At book four, Vendetta, you see a more mature Lucky, one who handles her business by being a corporate tycoon, only going for the menacing threats toward the end as a way to settle feuds permanently. Fans of JC will not be disappointed.
