Season 5, Episode 4: "Where Love Has Gone", by Harold Robbins

  • New York Public Library Picture Collection

    Harold Robbins once said, "For me, the goal is always to make the page disappear and speak to my reader face to face as each character comes to life." The 1962 novel that rocked Hollywood to its core is finally back in print. Ripped from the headlines, Where Love Has Gone is inspired by the real-life murder of Johnny Stompanato, Lana Turner's lover, who was allegedly stabbed by the actress' daughter. Luke Carey has a wife and a baby on the way. His future looks bright . . . until his past catches up with him unexpectedly. A phone call in the dead of night summons him back to San Francisco to help his fourteen-year-old daughter Danielle, whom he hasn't seen in six years. But helping Danielle means he may have to face his ex-wife Nora-a prospect Luke is none too eager to explore. The inspiration for the 1964 blockbuster film starring Bette Davis.
