Overview

Continuing the phenomenal story in The Betsy, The Stallion reintroduces the Hardeman family and the cutthroat world of their vast automobile empire, where the stakes are high and every man, and woman, is a gambler.
Loren Hardeman, known as “Number One,” is gradually transferring control of Bethlehem Motors to his grandson, Loren Hardeman III—a man possessed with his father’s cunning, but sadly lacking in his ability to go for the kill. So when Angelo Perino, an outsider previously nurtured by Number One, threatens the position held by Hardeman III, what ensues is a battle of wills in which integrity takes a backseat to animal instinct, and in which there can only be one winner.
Bursting with huge ingredients of lust, greed, sex, and intrigue—and a plot full of twists and double-crosses—this is Harold Robbins at his sizzling best.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Twenty-five years ago, The Betsy, Robbins's bestselling novel about the auto industry, marked the beginning of the author's glory years as the king of commercial fiction. After the success of such titles as The Lonely Lady and Dreams Die First, a subsequent string of tired potboilers (The Piranhas, etc.) saw Robbins's sales skid. Now, in an energetic attempt to reverse that trend, the author has begun to write sequels to his best-known books: first The Raiders, which followed up The Carpetbaggers, and now this robust son of The Betsy, which mimics all the personal vendettas, steamy sex and complex plotting-as well as cardboard characters-of the original. It's 1972, and tyrannical auto tycoon Loren Hardeman has just fired the brilliant Italian-American racecar driver and auto designer, Angelo Perino, despite the fact that Angelo saved the company from being taken over by Hardeman's sinister grandson, Loren III. In revenge for Angelo's interference, Loren III has had the man beaten almost to death by thugs. Now the recuperating Angelo marries the bisexual Cindy, a test driver-turned-art dealer, and vows to even the score by taking the business away from the ruthless Hardemans. The international art world, the Japanese impact on the auto industry and a blood feud provide a fascinating global web of subplots in bedchambers and boardrooms as Robbins spins his lascivious, melodramatic tale. While this novel may not be the powerhouse The Betsy was, it has wheels and is a worthy successor. Doubleday Book Club alternate selection. (Feb.)
