It is a story of Hollywood, and movie stars like David Bowie and Tatum O'Neal. It is a story of children's fairytales penned by one of Walt Disney's best-loved animators - the man who created Fantasia. It is a story of the Aga Khan, Robert Sangster, and the battle for control of the world's bloodstock industry. It is a story of men armed with Uzi machine guns, of glittering tax havens and unspeakable wealth. It is a story that begins in New Zealand and encircles the globe. Told by top investigative journalist and #1 bestselling author Ian Wishart, Lawyers, Guns & Money is a gripping legal thriller in the tradition of John Grisham's The Firm - only this one is a true story. 20,000 copy #1 bestseller back in print for the first time since 1997!

"This book traces an investigation into allegations of 'deception' or 'concealment' practised on a group of investors. They are allegations of fraud in the ... civil sense"--P. [2].
