Born into the torrid milieu of European intrigue in the aftermath of World War II, Rolfe Ritter defies his family and embarks on a lifelong obsession to create the world's finest hotel chain. On the outside, Ritter is the consummate suave global hotelier who is surrounded by beautiful and talented women. On the inside, he is relentlessly tormented by his personal demons.

Rolfe's endless need for more hotels that provide the highest standards and services forces him to survive in an exotic, complex, and tangled web of betrayal.

The lure of international espionage and his voracious appetite for growth drive him to make increasingly creative and dangerous financial deals, and he finds himself embroiled in the deep, sordid underpinnings of the luxury hotel industry. Sexual manipulation, blackmail, betrayal, fraud, corruption, and violence are commonplace in a ruthlessly competitive arena where greed and venality rule and millions of dollars are at stake.

When Rolfe uncovers a shocking family secret, he's alone and trapped by the black consequences of his ambition. Haunted and desperate, Rolfe stands to lose everything, the lives of those he holds dear are at risk--and his death may be the only solution.

I have picked up this book twice to read it. Both times making it through the first two chapters before giving up. I may never pick it up again. It would be a quick read. Might be good for the beach.
