Thatcher's Fortunes by Mark Hollingsworth

Book Description

When Mark Thatcher was arrested for helping to fund a plot to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang of the oil-rich African state of Equatorial Guinea, the spotlight was suddenly back on the controversial multimillionaire son of the former prime minister and his dubious business ventures. And the scandal revived an even more enticing mystery: just how has Mark Thatcher accumulated his large pot of gold? "Thatcher's Fortunes" reveals that while she was prime minister, Lady Thatcher was active in lobbying for contracts in which her son had a commercial interest. Despite the potential damage to her government, she allowed him to use her office to enrich himself through arms deals in the Middle East, construction contracts in the Gulf and oil ventures in Africa. After his mother was ousted from Downing Street, and while personally dogged by lawsuits and tax investigations, Mark Thatcher moved to South Africa. It was here that his association with gun-runners and mercenaries led to his involvement in the dramatic attempt to topple the president of Equatorial Guinea. Packed with new revelations about Mark and Lady Thatcher's commercial and financial affairs, "Thatcher's Fortunes" is an insider's account of one of the world's most famous political dynasties.
