TOM BOWER has become one of the doyens of investigative journalism.

He has already produced a book uncovering the workings of Robert Maxwell and his running of the Daily Mirror and tycoon Tiny Rowlands's takeover of The Observer.

Here in a meticulously researched piece of work he looks at the life Conrad Black. The man who ­purchased The Daily ­Telegraph and then, as we know from the subsequent criminal trial, taking millions of pounds for his own use.

Bower has a way of getting to the truth and in spite of the obstacles in his path he has produced a story that shows that power does indeed ­corrupt.
