Book Description

6 Nov 1992
A portrait of Robert Maxwell by the Foreign Editor of the "Daily Mirror", who was also one of Maxwell's few companions and confidantes outside the immediate family. The author was party to extraordinary events and conversations and provides a dimension to Maxwell's life which is unknown. The author presents Maxwell's life as one of greed, self-indulgence and a ruthless determination to succeed. There were also intense love affairs, set against appalling maltreatment of his long-suffering wife and family. His capacity for extortion, theft and utter ruthlessness was even greater than imagined. The author has also written "Diana: A Princess and her Troubled Marriage".

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable but maybe useful for research 6 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This autobiographical account by the former Daily Mirror foreign editor, Nicholas Davies is almost unreadable due to its poor story structure and a lack of real detail.
It feels untruthful and padded.
By definition, arms dealer Davies who is said to have been an Israeli intelligence operative, has to withhold the real stories. Instead he offers us petty, insignificant little stories designed to vindicate himself regarding a love affair with Maxwell's secretary.
Maybe of interest to specialist investigators and biographers who can read between the lines though.
Like other Maxwell biographers, he insinuates that Maxwell did not commit suicide but was murdered. However, he points the finger at some unlikely suspects, which like everything else in this book has a false ring to it.
