The Carpetbaggers (Mass Market Paperback)
A LEGENDARY MASTERPIECE
A STORY OF MONEY AND POWER,
SEX AND DEATH
Jonas Cord coveted his father's fame, fortune, even his young, beautiful wife. When his father died, Jonas swore to possess them all. But Rina Marlow was the celebrated screen goddess no man could master. Her sizzling sensuality might inflame and enthrall millions, but her personal boudoir was no Hollywood fantasy. She consumed her lovers on the fiery rack of her burning desires.
Rina and Jonas took Hollywood, the airplane industry, America itself by storm. From New York to LA they brawled, lusted, and carved out an empire, blazoned in banner headlines and their enemies' blood--only to learn that money and power, revenge and renown were not enough. Too much would never be enough--not for Jonas Cord and the relentless Rina Marlowe. The higher they soared, the more their ambition demanded . . . the darker and deadlier their fiery passions grew.

This book is SO amazing! A beautifully written scientific and personal memoir that is informative, touching, heart-breaking, and inspiring. Jahren’s descriptions of her life and scientific research into the intricacies of the plant world are as poetic and poignant as it gets. The story weaves through her early upbringing in Minnesota, her education, starting her lab with her lovable and eccentric lab partner Bill. It then follows her finding love, motherhood, and her ground-breaking geobiology research. Reading this is like taking a walk through the forest with a friend. Every word is filled with authenticity and a fervent passion for science and this book makes me proud to be studying to become a scientist. It’s a must read for those interested in the natural world or any human who has ever had feelings. - Linnea
