The Predators takes you on a wild odyssey through the gaudy and reckless life of Jerry Cooper: his struggles to survive in depression-hit New York; his years in Europe during the war; his friends, wives and lovers; his life in organised crime, and his entrance into the world of high-powered international business…
Into the world of Plesscassier. The premier purveyor of vintage French spring water, Plesscassier is owned by Jean Pierre Martine, a consummate rogue and
fearless risk-taker, whose all-consuming greed is rivaled only by his unbridled sexual desires. However, for all Jean Pierre’s flair, Plesscassier is not yet the global colossus it may one day become. It will take somebody like Jerry Cooper, with his enormous appetites, financial genius and criminal past, to put Plesscassier at the top of the international market.
But can he make it? There are corporate hustlers who want his money. Mob guys who want his cojones. Women who want both. And enemies from the past who want him dead.
