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

From the Back Cover

Robert Maxwell was one of the most flamboyant, complex and – seemingly – the richest self-made men in post-war Britain. The tentacles of his power stretched from newspapers to football, from the boardrooms of his many companies and into the thoughts of the world at large.

'Maxwell: The Final Verdict' is a story of greed and corruption on a truly mammoth scale. Revealing, for the first time, how Maxwell hurtled tumultuously towards disaster, it draws upon an exceptional resource of inside knowledge, such as could only have been assembled by the leading investigative journalist of his generation. Including intimate accounts of Maxwell's lifestyle and personality from his closest associates – from world politicians to girlfriends – answering all the questions surrounding his death and the investigations which follow it, and with full details of the trial of Kevin and Ian Maxwell, this is the most explosive expose of the decade.

'Bower presents a story which everything has: greed, intrigue, fraud, sex, spies, famous names and a mysterious and violent death'.
