Read full description of the books:
Es ist Montagabend. In dem luxuriösen St. Gregory Hotel in New York herrscht Hochbetrieb. Doch alles klappt wie am Schnürchen: beim Empfang, auf den Etagen, in den weitläufigen Restaurantionsräumen, in der Bar, in Küche und Keller. Man könnte zufrieden sein. Doch unter der gleißenden Oberfläche knistert es, denn das Hotel befindet sich in finanziellen Schwierigkeiten. Nicht nur der Hotelbesitzer Warren Trent ist davon betroffen. Auch seine Assistentin Christine Francis, der tüchtige Geschäftsführer Peter McDermott, der bestechliche Chefportier, der im Trüben fischende Hoteldetektiv und viele andere...
Aber auch Gäste werden davon berührt. Das sind Curtis O'Keefe, Besitzer einer internationalen Kette von Hotels, der zu Kaufverhandlungen ins St. Gregory kommt, der dekadente Herzog von Croydon und seine eiskalte Gattin, der unscheinbare, zurückhaltende Albert Wells und zahlreiche andere, die mit dem Hotel durch unsichtbare und mitunter geheimnisvolle Fäden verbunden sind.

Read information about the authorArthur Hailey was a British/Canadian novelist. After working at a number of jobs and writing part-time, he became a writer full-time during 1956, encouraged by the success of the CBC television drama, Flight into Danger (in print as Runway Zero Eight ). Following the success of Hotel in 1965, he moved to California; followed by a permanent move to the Bahamas in 1969.
Each of his novels has a different industrial or commercial setting and includes, in addition to dramatic human conflict, carefully researched information about the way that particular environment and system functions and how these affect society and its inhabitants.
Critics often dismissed Hailey's success as the result of a formulaic "potboiler" style, in which he caused an ordinary character to become involved in a crisis, then increased the suspense by switching among multiple related plot lines.
Hailey would spend approximately one year researching a subject, followed by six months reviewing his notes and, finally, about 18 months writing the book.
Many of his books reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and more than 170 million copies have been sold worldwide in 40 languages. Many have been made into movies and Hotel was made into a long-running television series. Airport became a successful film with dramatic visual effects.
A Canadian citizen whose children live in Canada and California, Hailey made his home in Lyford Cay, an exclusive residential resort on New Providence Island in the Bahamas with his second wife Sheila.
In 2002, Hailey told John Marquis, editor of the Bahamas' principal daily newspaper The Tribune, that he was lucky in having supportive parents who encouraged him to believe in himself. Brought up in a working-class home, Hailey never lost the common touch following his phenomenal success. 'I have worked hard, but I have also been very lucky,' he said.
