9780007288106: Confessions of a Fake Sheik: The King of the Sting Reveals All

Jaw-dropping insider's revelations from the world's number one investigative journalist. Meeting a supermodel who secretly doubles up as the world's most expensive hooker, encountering a doctor who wants to murder his mistress, coming face to face with famous celebrities dealing cocaine, or enjoying a cozy dinner with members of the Royal family—it's all in a day's work for an investigative reporter like the News of the World's Mazher Mahmood. A Who's Who of the rich and famous have fallen prey to his disguise as the Fake Sheik. For the first time the full truth is revealed behind these amazing stories, the story of a lifetime in and out of the Arab robes—exposing corrupt officials, drug dealers, pedophiles, people traffickers, and Islamic terrorists. Sometimes humorous, often frightening, but always sensational, this is a gripping account of a life behind the headlines. A long list of politicians, celebrities, officials, and athletes have blamed the Fake Sheik for their downfall. He is also the scourge of the criminal world with his work having led to more than 230 convictions. A Russian mafia boss has put a GBP30,000 price-tag on his head. Now in, his sensational book, the man dubbed "the King of the Sting" details his methods as well as the secret deals that led to several stories being toned down to save careers and marriages. He also exposes celebrities and politicians who until now thought they had gotten away with it.
