"Disgracefully entertaining" -- Daily Mail In 1970, an American calling himself Bay Radisson arrived in London with no place to live and no place to go back to. Twenty years later, he was riding the crest of a wave, as one of Britain's brightest and most successful "risk takers." With charm, cunning and humor, he and his partner had built themselves a minor empire - conquering gladiators in an arena where money was the only way to keep score. But then Robert Maxwell dies, and that inadvertently sets off a chain of events that sends Bay's world into a crashing nose-dive. Facing ruin, he finds himself caught in a ruthless battle against the establishment to save his life. Set against the backdrop of the City of London, The Margin of the Bulls documents an era when the wheeling and dealing of the 1980s became the crimes of the 1990s. "Robinson has taken stories that the libel laws would not allow him to tell as fiction." -- Sunday Times "Fiction and reality enjoy a less than platoinic relationship." -- The Guardian "A topical, gripping marriage of fact and fiction." -- Evening Post Newspapers "Robinson is a rather good fiction writer, with a breezy writing style and a smoothly flowing plot." -- South China Morning Post "Just the sort of book you would expect from someone in the know." -- The Times =========== JEFFREY ROBINSON is the international best-selling author of 28 titles. This was his third novel. Written in the mid-1990s, THE MARGIN OF THE BULLS is an insider’s look into the world of business during the “Wild West” years in the City of London. It was a time when the only thing that mattered was making money, because that’s how you kept score. "Jeffrey Robinson's books are eye-opening studies of worldwide organized crime" - CNN "Robinson is highly readable and entertaining" - Boston Globe "Robinson is an expert story teller whose clear, lively prose is lent force by a sharp sense of irony" - Toronto Globe and Mail "Robinson is a witty and cynical writer" - Sydney Sun Herald "With the vividness of Mario Puzo and a touch of humor, Robinson writes with verve, a keen sense of anecdote, and an authoritative command of the facts" - Quill & Quire "If you were looking for the financial equivalent of a renaissance man, Jeffrey Robinson would fit the bill perfectly. The late 20th century demands volumes and volubility, both of which Robinson possesses in abundance" - Sunday Business
