Traces the dubious rise of a chain of lingerie stores, following a colorful cast of hustlers and street people as they remake themselves

McMillan Palgrave
The world's bestselling novelist is back with Secrets, a steamy novel chronicling the rise of a lingerie chain. Jerry Cooper of The Predators is back to launch his new empire of intimate women's apparel. He now has a son, Les Cooper, a streetwise young lawyer who slowly uncovers the family's mob involvement, a secret which Jerry has desperately tried to conceal until he finds himself in need of a lawyer. Combining the grit of his early work with the glamour of his later novels, Robbins once again provides readers with a pantheon of street-raised hustlers and anti-heroes who would use their hard-won knowledge to claw their way up the ladder of success.

In The Secret, a steamy novel chronicling the meteoric rise of a lingerie chain, Jerry Cooper returns, moving from his spring-water success to launch his new empire of intimate women's apparel. Unfortunately, Jerry's operation, unlike companies such as Victoria's Secret, isn't exactly legit. He would desperately like to keep his son, an honest lawyer with street smarts and a code of honor, out of the family business and away from his mob associates. All is well until Jerry needs a good lawyer, and his son insists on getting involved.
