Summary
  • This is a book about the twilight of an empire. A media empire unique in the history of the English-language as it spreads its international dominance into television, film and newspapers, books and the electronic media. Ultimately all power in this mighty empire is in the hands of the man who started it - Rupert Murdoch
  • At the age of 82, Rupert Murdoch is divorcing his third wife Wendi Deng and gearing up for the toughest challenge of his life: to hand his empire on to his children. But is this the end of the Murdoch dynasty? Lachlan doesn't want to succeed him. James is in disgrace. And Elisabeth is not a serious contender. His grip on the group has also been weakened by scandal. His British tabloids have been caught hacking phones and bribing officials on an industrial scale. At least twenty journalists will soon face trial for hacking and corruption and could be jailed. But Rupert thrives on crisis. He has recently split News Corp in two, doubled his fortune to 9 billion dollars US, and is bouncing around like a man in his prime. So can he win this one last battle and keep it all in the family?
