Engrossing and addictive, No.1 Bestseller Jeffrey Archer’s The Fourth Estate sees two newspaper barons in a battle for supremacy and power.

Two men who seem to have little in common aside from their desire to stay at the top of their game.

One, Richard Armstrong, born in poverty, survived the Second World War through luck, guts and being ruthless before buying a failing German newspaper while putting his competitors out of business.

The other, Keith Townsend, raised in wealth, took over his family’s business, his brilliance soon making him the most successful newspaper publisher in Australia.

Now their ambitions are about to collide as each find themselves threated by financial disaster. In a race to save their crumbling empires, each man must find a way to remain on top and take control of the greatest media conglomerate in the world.

Only one can triumph. Which one will it be?

With Archer’s trademark twists and turns, this is a powerful tale set in the newspaper world of wealth and corruption, desire and destruction.
