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.
