Wealth. Influence. Magnetism. Mystery. In twentieth century America, one man alone embodied all these qualities in their purest form. During a life which read like the wildest imaginings of a Hollywood scriptwriter, Howard Hughes - billionaire tycoon, pioneer aviator, playboy, eccentric and movie mogul - became a totem of fascination around the globe. In his twilight years, the mystery surrounding him intensified when he became a total recluse, hiding himself away in shady hotel suites for more than a decade. Some believed him to be dead; others thought he had gone crazy. Few really knew the truth - just as Hughes preferred.The ambiguity surrounding him spawned one of the first modern media obsessions. Speculation abounded, from the business pages of broadsheets through international magazine articles down to the sidewalk opinion-makers. And unsurprisingly there were few books written about Hughes' fascinating life - a life which was rumoured to be on the brink of ruin. So New...

An incredible true tale of espionage and engineering set at the height of the Cold War—a mix between The Hunt for Red October and Argo—about how the CIA, the U.S. Navy, and America’s most eccentric mogul spent six years and nearly a billion dollars to steal the nuclear-armed Soviet submarine K-129 after it had sunk to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean; all while the Russians were watching. In the early hours of February 25, 1968, a Russian submarine armed with three nuclear ballistic missiles set sail from its base in Siberia on a routine combat patrol to Hawaii. Then it vanished. As the Soviet Navy searched in vain for the lost vessel, a small, highly classified American operation using sophisticated deep-sea spy equipment found it—wrecked on the sea floor at a depth of 16,800 feet, far beyond the capabilities of any salvage that existed. But the potential intelligence assets onboard the ship—the nuclear warheads, battle orders, and cryptological machines—justified going to extreme lengths to find a way to raise the submarine. So began Project Azorian, a top-secret mission that took six years, cost an estimated $800 million, and would become the largest and most daring covert operation in CIA history. After the U.S. Navy declared retrieving the sub “impossible,” the mission fell to the CIA's burgeoning Directorate of Science and Technology, the little-known division responsible for the legendary U-2 and SR-71 Blackbird spy planes. Working with Global Marine Systems, the country's foremost maker of exotic, deep-sea drilling vessels, the CIA commissioned the most expensive ship ever built and told the world that it belonged to the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, who would use the mammoth ship to mine rare minerals from the ocean floor. In reality, a complex network of spies, scientists, and politicians attempted a project even crazier than Hughes’s reputation: raising the sub directly under the watchful eyes of the Russians. The Taking of K-129 is a riveting, almost unbelievable true-life tale of military history, engineering genius, and high-stakes spy-craft set during the height of the Cold War, when nuclear annihilation was a constant fear, and the opportunity to gain even the slightest advantage over your enemy was worth massive risk.

Many people know about Howard Hughes, America’s first billionaire. He was an aviation engineer, an Oscar-winning motion picture producer and director, and a hotel and casino owner in Las Vegas and Reno, with seven establishments. He built the biggest airplane in the world at the time—known as the Spruce Goose—and the Glormar Explorer supership for the CIA. He owned RKO Motion Picture Studios in Hollywood, as well as tens of thousands of acres in California, Nevada, and Texas. Fewer people, however, know the Howard Hughes of the neon world of Las Vegas in the 1970s. Reclusive and eccentric, Hughes spent his later years surrounded by Mormon aides who insulated him from outsiders. This collection of biographical anecdotes includes stories of the power players of the time—celebrities, famous actresses, and the Las Vegas Mafia—as well as tales of Hughes’s bevy of less-well-known ladies. Told by an insider who knew Hughes in that era, these stories reveal new aspects of an American icon, set against the background of Sin City, the town he loved so much. “John has captured a fascinating era here; I know ... I was there.” —Alvin Zuckert, Emmy-award winning television director “John’s book caused me to relive an exciting and wonderful time in my life. There were sides of Hughes you never knew existed ... until now!” —Ted West, engineer for Hughes Television, KLAS-TV and FOX-TV, Las Vegas, Nevada “No crapshoot here; John’s got an absolute winner.” —Gary Marlow, technical director for Hughes Television, KLAS-TV, Las Vegas, Nevada

"In December of 1967, two men came together in the loneliness of the Nevada desert. One was a billionaire - the richest man in America at the time - the other was a regular guy, a working stiff. The billionaire was found lying face-down on a dirt road. He had long hair and blood caked on the side of his head and he was dressed like a bum." "As the car's heater warmed, the half-frozen man came alive. The revived vagrant seemed to want to impress his rescuer. He announced that he was Howard Hughes. Melvin Dummar smiled at the man's improbable pronouncement. How could this unkept bum be Howard Hughes? Dummar drove on feeling sympathy for the hobo beside him." "When Hughes died, there was the startling discovery: the Bashful Billionaire had written Melvin Dummar, the Mormon Church, and several other unlikely characters into his will before his death. According to the handwritten will, Dummar was an heir to one sixteenth of the vast Hughes fortune." "A trial to decide the authenticity of the will turned into a media circus - the likes of which this country had never seen before. By the time the judicial fog had lifted, Melvin Dummar, the Good Samaritan in this story, was left broke, his reputation tarnished." "Thirty-eight years later, a 26-year veteran of the FBI revisits the cold case. He takes readers along on an exciting, real-life investigation where new evidence is unearthed and new witnesses uncovered." "Gary Magnesen proves Dummar told the truth, and that he was robbed of $150 million dollars in a probate trial that was wrought with perjury, witness intimidation, jury tampering, and other wrongdoing."--BOOK JACKET.
