Synopsis: Money can buy everything. Robert A Maheu was the best former FBI counter intelligence spy that money could buy. And Howard Hughes bought him. Maheu climbed up the power ladder in the Hughes organization, until he became Hughes' alter ego and finally Maheu was running the whole Hughes Nevada Empire. Then Maheu became involved in an ugly corporate struggle within the empire. He was instantly fired from his $520,000 a year post by Hughes aides. But the forces of Howard Hughes didn't reckon on one man telling all - one man who knew all. Maheu fought back - he sued Hughes for $50 Million. MAHEU: Reveals why he was fired. Discloses how his attorney, Morton Galane, forced the Hughes empire to reveal the names of the five mystery men (better known as "The Palace Guard") who constantly surrounded the billionaire and kept him hidden from the outside world. Describes the pressure brought on his family and him. Explains the operations of International Intelligence “Agency” - in the sole employment of Hughes. Brings to light how he discovered there was a price on his head. Discloses why Hughes was a security risk to the United States. Unfolds Hughes' mad craving for power - his belief that he was more powerful than the President - his desire to control history. Tells the functions of the Hughes Tool Company, among other Hughes ventures. Reveals that Howard Hughes was not living in the Bahamas and tells us where . . . and shows us.
About the Author: I WAS A VICTIM OF THE BIGGEST SCAM IN PUBLISHING HISTORY; CLIFFORD IRVING’S HOAX. This book is based on my interviews for The New York Times with Robert Maheu, the man who ran Howard Hughes' Las Vegas Empire for 17 years at a salary of $10,000 a week. There were international book right sales and world wide syndication contracts. The Book of the Month Club was calling. But all came to a stop when Clifford Irving's bogus book was announced. Irving gave back almost a million dollars and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison; his wife was sentenced to two years in Switzerland. And my book of 17 secret years of Howard Hughes in Las Vegas was cast aside. Now Howard Hughes is more famous than ever because of movies such as the Aviator. And Richard Gere's movie HOAX is becoming a hit. “So I now bring you my book on one of the greatest men who ever lived from my recorded interviews with Howard Hughes' Robert Maheu. Included in this book is the last 2.5 hour recorded interview with Howard Hughes.” RL Ron Laytner has long been known as one the most widely syndicated photojournalists of modern times.

He started at the Toronto Star newspaper in Canada and soon was doing stories for Life Magazine, Paris Match, The London Sunday Times and hundreds of other publications around the world. Recently The London Sunday Times Magazine did a three part series on the ‘Greatest Photographs Ever Taken’. The section on ‘Conflict’ began with a photograph Laytner took at the beginning of his career and which was featured in 'The Best of Life’. To see some of his work go to www.editinternational.com.
