The last year of Maxwell's life was a hectic struggle for pleasure, power and survival. Within that period all Maxwell's strengths and weakness were exemplified - outwardly his empire was at the height of its glory - but the secrets about fraud and lies were about to be revealed. This is his story.

About the Author:

Tom Bower has a distinguished reputation as an investigative historian, broadcaster and journalist and is the author of several ground-breaking books about tycoons. His most recent works are 'Conrad and Lady Black', 'The Squeeze' and his biographies of Simon Cowell and Bernie Ecclestone. Among his other much-debated biographies are those of Mohammed Fayed, Richard Branson and Robert Maxwell.

Review:

'Bower presents a story which has everything: greed, intrigue, fraud, sex, spies, famous names and a mysterious and violent death' Andy McSmith, Observer 'Why did the Maxwells get off? The answers are in Tom Bower's book. His relentless research has produced something more than an expose of a single rogue' Paul Foot, Spectator 'Bower's portrait of the monster is totally convincing and his grasp of the financial nuts and bolts formidable' Martin Vander Weyer, Sunday Telegraph 'A devastating indictment not only of one man but of human fallibility and the City of London' Roy Greenslade, Sunday Times 'An epic tale of deception and greed... Bower shows absolute mastery of the financial maneouvrings. No one could have too much faith in the capitalist system after reading this gripping book' Richard Ingrams, Evening Standard 'This book is difficult even to review without running into problems of defamation. Bower is quite fearless... excellent' Lynn Barber, Daily Telegraph
