Product Description:

If this was a boardroom thriller it would be difficult to believe. But it's the true story of the £25 billion battle for the control of a company. RJR Nabisco became a symbol of the financial greed of the 1980s.

This book reveals the surprising truth behind a Wall Street gamble which sent shock waves through the international business world.

Review:

"The most bizarre financial mock-epic of our age. Read it open-mouthed; wonder and shudder." ( Independent)

"All the suspense of a first-rate thriller - one of the finest, most compelling accounts of what happened to corporate America and Wall Street in the 1980s." ( New York Times Book Review)
