Sir James Goldsmith was one of the most intriguing figures of the twentieth century but as a billionaire with a taste for litigation he successfully ensured that, for much of his life, his background, methods and ambitions escaped far-reaching investigation. This is the first unauthorised biography of Goldsmith and it deals with every aspect of his complex life. This is a book for anyone interested in how great fortunes are built, the future of Europe, the ongoing controversy over environmental issues and – of course – how a charismatic man can juggle a succession of wives and mistresses. Has he equipped his children to exploit the fortune he has left to build a vast business empire or has he condemned them to gilded obscurity? Goldsmith tells the incredible story of an extraordinary man and the legacy he has left his family and the world.

About the Author

THE writer and broadcaster Chris Hutchins is an established author of highly acclaimed biographies of the rich, the famous and the royals. His first, Fergie Confidential, was an intimate biography of the Duchess of York and chronicled her troubled marriage to the Queen's favourite son, Prince Andrew. He followed this with a revelatory biography of the late Princess of Wales, Diana's Nightmare: The Family, a book which so established him as an authority on the royals that he was invited to cover Prince Charles' subsequent marriage for American television. Books that followed include Elvis Meets the Beatles - a rendezvous he arranged during his close association with all five - ATHINA: The Last Onassis , which probed deeply into the world of the Onassis dynasty and GOLDSMITH: Money, Women and Power, the biography of the late billionaire entrepreneur, Sir James Goldsmith. More recently Hutchins turned his attention to matters Russian with fearless biographies of the country's leader, PUTIN, and best-known oligarch, ABRAMOVICH: The billionaire from nowhere. The author returned to the royal stage with a revealing book about Diana's son, HARRY: The People's Prince Then it was back to rock'n roll with THE BEATLES: Messages from John, Paul George and Ringo which featured on its cover one of the postcards John Lennon sent to the author during his travels.

As Prince Charles' former secretary Mark Bolland says of him: 'Chris Hutchins seems to have seen and done it all . . . '
