Inhaltsangabe

The Empire State Building is an icon as immediately recognizable as the Eiffel Tower or the Taj Mahal. For some of the world's most powerful people, it is the ultimate prize. In a riveting chronicle of betrayal, revenge, family rivalry, and raw greed, award-winning Wall Street Journal columnist Mitchell Pacelle tells the compelling tale of the Empire State Building ownership battle of the 1980s and '90s.

Pacelle brings to life a colorful cast of characters that includes many of the most notorious players in international real estate, including Donald Trump, Leona Helmsley, and the eccentric Japanese billionaire Hideki Yokoi.
