Edward Armstead, son of the richest and most influential media king since William Randolph Hearst, has two great obsessions: his father's mistress Kim Nesbit and the flagship newspaper of the Armstead empire, the New York Record. On his father's death, Armstead 'inherits' both Kim and the Record, but there are strings attached. He accidentally but quickly learns that the one infallible way to untie the knot and keep on top of the newspaper business is to manufacture exclusive news. Fired by his astounding successes and driven by an ever-growing lust for power and possession. Armstead throws all ethical considerations to the wind. Dubbed 'the Almighty' by Time magazine, he secretly organizes his own London terrorist gang to kidnap world leaders...

But Victoria Weston and Nick Ramsay, two investigative journalists on the Record, are dismayed to find themselves repeatedly upstaged by the mysterious 'Mark Bradshaw', a Record reporter who is always first with the big stories. Determined to get to the bottom of 'Bradshaw', Victoria has a series of harrowing brushes with death before the frightening truth dawns. Is it too late to stop Armstead staging his final coup de grâce, his story to end all stories...?

Breathlessly readable, The Almighty is a book about supreme and terrifying power - the power to manipulate people, events, history. Deeply sceptical of the motives of the press, Irving Wallace is convinced that The Almighty not only could happen but will happen.


Very Good (VG): I may show some small signs of wear - but no tears - on either binding or paper.
