Thank you to Grey's Promotions for sending me an ebook Advanced Readers Copy of GREED for me to read and review. King of Greed” is a passionate and thought-provoking novel that invites readers to ponder the true meaning of success, the value of love, and the possibility of finding redemption in the most unexpected places. Synopsis Daniela is far from a pampered princess, she has a heart of gold and is passionate and shows kindness to some those some would think are beneath her. She is willing to give her life to protect those she calls her family. She was a beautiful soul and feisty to boot. Daniela faults hum, she is drawn to a dark and dangerous man who holds her captive.

Instead, the woman stubbornly remains alive, Ernst's wife forced to care for the old invalid, a considerably greater burden than anticipated. The novel tells the story of a policeman who kills a 15-year-old girl while she is performing fellatio and then dumps the body in a lake.Certainly not for everyone -- but there's enough to it (as there is arguably too much to it ...) to thoroughly engage the reader willing to go on this long and bumpy ride.

I decided rereading Greed, after being scandalized in a recent conversation by the comparison someone dared make between Jelinek and Herta Mueller. I read Jelinek years ago, and only in German, and I would be ready to give in this much: the English translation doesn’t do her justice (I remember as my one personal literary ambition starting to translate Die Liebhaberinnen into Romanian in 2005, only to be detoured from my project and immensely disappointed by the translation published only months after I started - I don’t think Jelinek’s reputation amongst the Romanian public will soon recover, same for the English translation of Greed) but even so, there’s no comparison between the two. On to the story: I’ll use the book blurb so I don’t give much away (Not that there is much more to the plot than what is here): “Greed is the story of Kurt Janisch, an ambitious but frustrated country policeman, and the lonely women he seduces. It is a thriller set amid the mountains and small towns of southern Austria, where the investigation of a dead girl's body in a lake leads to the discovery of more than a single crime. In her signature style, Jelinek chronicles the exploitative nature of relations between men and women, and the cruelties of everyday life.”She does not drone, but the story only offers loose holds, not least because Janisch is such an elusive character. Antonio Huntsman is the clear winner cause he's the chosen one by Daniela D'Sousa's father on his deathbed.

In a world where ambition threatens to tear them apart, Dominic and Alessandra must confront their own desires and make choices that will define the course of their lives. Will their love prove strong enough to weather the storm of greed, or will it be lost forever in the pursuit of more? Step over steamy reads of 2021, there's a new and hotter man in down and his name is Antonio. And he's about to add fuel to your fires! Die Handlung des Buches war klischeebeladen, zog sich ewig hin und schien mir nur als Rahmen für den Wortwitz zu dienen, aber auch für allerlei sarkastische Bemerkungen über Österreich und Politik. Teilweise handelten die Personen völlig unlogisch. Warum ließ sich der Besitz liebende und Frauen verachtende Protagonist mit einem besitzlosen jungen Mädchen ein? Was sollte der halbe Kriminalfall in dem Buch? Ich fürchte, ich habe es nicht verstanden. Es gab reichlich detaillert und vulgär geschilderte Sexszenen, denen eine furchbares Frauenbild zugrunde lag. Hier bemerkte ich den Sarkasmus hinter der klischeehaften Beziehung, aber es machte die ganze Handlung noch absurder.

When what must have happened becomes all too obvious for her to ignore she does not, however, turn on Janisch but rather on herself; by the end, Janisch has another death on his conscience (or would, if he had much of a conscience). The man really has no grounds to care one way or the other, all he needs is the ground, he can throw the rest away.
