Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience of American rocket scientists who always guess that the foreigner is the bad guy in books and who were quite confused to discover that just about all the characters in The Power Trip are foreigners… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!

Go ahead, ask me what most surprised me in reading Jackie Collins’ latest story, The Power Trip.

Nope, not the sex!

It was the sweeping action sequence that brings this wild tale to its conclusion.

I know Ms. Collins has written action before, but this was entirely kick-ass, far more than I would have expected. It changed the complexion of a story baked in privilege, extreme sexuality of many stripes and a load of catty gossip.

JACKIE COLLINS podcast excerpt: “I’m not a ‘literary’ writer and I’ve never pretended to be one.” 

As always, Ms. Collins has packed her story with colorful, powerful, manipulative figures–male and female alike. It seems like everybody has angle, everybody is striving, and everybody is game to climb over anyone they have to in order to be king of some imagined hill.

Quite honestly, there are very few truly likeable characters, although I was charmed by the UK football star Taye Sherwin and the Latin singer Luca Perez. Lori, the movie star’s seemingly interchangeable girlfriend, comes closest among the women to being agreeable, but…

If you want to read a page-turner that will make you lose track of time and space, I can heartily recommend The Power Trip by Jackie Collins.

I also recommend you stick around for this interview because Ms. Collins’ first two visits to Mr. Media were nothing but delightful fun. And this time, we’re also going to impose upon her to read a selection from her new book.
