GRAND OPENING by Bernard Glemser


Email this review


Remember the building of The 60th Monarch (1974)--the latest addition to a large chain of luxury hotels in the East, a jewel now threatened by the Chinese Mafia. From one day to the harried next its senior executives leave; Paul Ashby, Monarch's vice-president, finds that the hotel's been infiltrated with lovegirls; and there's sabotage, fire, and the ghost of a faceless woman which makes the theft of two dozen pink bidets pale in significance. But particularly with the help of Sharifah Shaari, the new young program coordinator with whom Ashby falls in love, the gala opening is achieved where everything tinkles under the imported Italian chandeliers. Hush stush.
