In 1989, with his media empire on the brink of collapse, Max Robertson dies mysteriously, apparently committing suicide. Now, six months on, ex-Mossad agent Sam Woolfman is hired to find Robertson's missing 50-million - a job that has already claimed the lives of five men. Using his espionage expertise Sam's investigation takes him throughout Europe, extracting and deciphering what clues he can. As he delves deeper into the dark underbelly of Robertson's murky business dealings, he discovers that Robertson's death may have been more sinister than it first appeared. In a web of intrigue, betrayal and deceit Sam's loyalty and allegiance are tested. Unsure of who he can really trust he sets out to discover the truth.

From the Publisher

First in a series of explosive thrillers with a series hero, Max is based on the mysterious death of Robert Maxwell.

From the Back Cover

One man’s journey to the heart of the greatest conspiracy of the twentieth century.

Sam Woolfman has spent five years as a top assassin for The Mossad, Israel's feared secret service.

Max Robertson is a billionaire media tycoon, who mysteriously drowns whilst his commercial empire collapses around him.

When Sam leaves the Mossad, he is left alone, a broken and hunted man. In one last throw of the dice, he accepts an assignment to find out the truth behind the death of billionaire media tycoon, Max Robertson.

Slowly, a global conspiracy of terrifying scale starts to unravel. What was the secret of Robertson's fortune? Why were the great powers of the world so keen to protect him? What is the mystery of his death that must never be revealed?

Sam is about to find out -- but as he does so, his own life is put in danger.

'Max' is a shocking, realistic thriller, written with insider knowledge that throws new and piercing light on one of the greatest scandals of the last two decades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Spy Novel 1 Nov 2006
By Simon
Wow! A first rate espionage thriller. The level of detail, the blend of fact and fiction and the larger than life characters make "Max" a great, fun read. I couldn't put it down. I would recommend it to any fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! QUITE THRILLING! 16 Aug 2006
I rarely take the time to write reviews or to comment on fiction, however, I felt that I had to this one time. I picked up a copy of MAX to read while on holiday and finished it in 2 days. It was non-stop excitement and fun. I enjoyed stumbling upon subtle nuggets of reality having read Vengeance by George Jonas and having watched Sword of Gideon years ago. There are direct parallels to be found between all three stories if one takes the time to explore. MAX is the perfect blend between fiction and non-fiction considering the background of the author and the other real-life stories attributed to him. Definitely worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Find! 25 Aug 2009
I bought this book on a whim knowing nothing about Robert Maxwell whom the story is based. The author really knows his stuff. I could not put it down, a thrilling read.
I loved the Mossad angle. Don't be put off by the cover which is reminiscent of many a badly written action/thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Summer Thriller! 26 July 2006
This book was extremely exciting and entertaining. The mix of controversy and the subtle way the author infused his insider knowledge of the case and intelligence matters left me with the feeling that I was reading more than just a work of fiction. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a fast-paced, well-written thriller.
