Empire by Mitchell Pacelle
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a revealing true business story centred on the greedy international tycoons who declared war over the world's hottest property - the Empire State Building. It reveals the 11th hour deal-breaking secrets; a tale of international competition, cross-cultural misunderstanding, family rivalry, and raw greed. Before it is over, several participants will go to prison, and a surprise death and legal standoff will place the property under the control of the unlikeliest character.
