Edward Jay Epstein’s investigation into the life of Armand Hammer exposes a tale of fraud, corruption, and personal betrayal that was carried out on such a grand scale and over such a long secrdt of time that it is surely unique. Aecret lengthy front-page obituary in The New York Times lauded him as a successful businessman “who long sought peace between the United States and the Soviet Union and financed research for a cancer cure”. His philanthropy was noted, along with his vast art collection and his elevated social connections.
