Made homeless by a German bomber, scarred by the horrors of WWII, Eagles survived by instinct alone. And as the penniless orphan became an international tycoon, Eagles approached life with ruthlessness and vengeance - never thinking his empire was built on sand.From the innocent passions of his first true love to the tight embrace of money and power, from the war-torn misery of firebombed Europe to the lavish opulence of Manhattan society, this is the story of a street-wise boy, a reckless gambler, a renowned financier, whose remarkable life was ruled by anguish and ambition, tragedy and triumph.
