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
