Summary
"Max ... owns one of the world's most influential media empires. He holds dark secrets on everyone, and uses his power ruthlessly. His son Caden ... is the youngest ever editor of Max's prized mouthpiece, 'The national.' But Caden is crumbling under the pressure of his father's expectations, numbing his pain with cocaine and sex. When Caden's excesses cause a massive stroke, he's left battling to rebuild his life. For Max's estranged wife Kathryn ... this is a second chance to be a mother to her son. A respected former journalist from a wealthy British family, she's determined to reconnect with the sensitive boy Max ripped away from her. As the family gears up for an incendiary confrontation, another war is brewing that could bring Max's empire crashing down. This is a fight for family, a fight for truth--a fight for the heart of the nation."--
