Waterstones Says

Examining the myriad of deals the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has struck with various US bankers, celebrities and politicians, Blood and Oil is a disturbing examination of absolute wealth and the support it can buy.

Longlisted for the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award 2020

Blood and Oil the explosive untold story of how Mohammed bin Salman and his entourage grabbed power in the Middle East and acquired a network of Western allies - including well-known US bankers, Hollywood figures, and politicians - all eager to help the charming and crafty crown prince.

Through astonishing interviews with powerful insiders, Blood and Oil tells how MBS's cabal played the Saudi economy and capitalised on the omnipotence of feudal power while effectively stamping out dissent, before allegations of his extreme brutality and excess began to slip out. A story of breathtaking dealings that range from Riyadh to London, Paris to America, this is a thrilling and brutal investigation into extreme wealth, one of the world's most decisive and dangerous new leaders, and the bid for Suadi transformation that is reverberating around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hope & Scheck confront us with the conundrum of a young man who is doing good by his Kingdom - brilliantly describing how the enigmatic Crown Prince is bringing progress to Arabia as we would see it in the West - while operating with a ruthlessness and absolutism that make the stomach curl. Blood and Oil is compelling reading. We are challenged and enthralled on every page.' - Robert Lacey, author of The Kingdom and Inside the Kingdom 

'It will leave you with a deep and nuanced understanding of the Crown Prince's thinking and its implications for Saudi Arabia and the entire Middle East' - John Carreyrou, author of Bad Blood 

'If you've ever wondered what would happen if limitless money met limitless power, wonder no longer, it's all here. This book is by turns terrifying, disturbing and ghastly, but written with a light touch that forces you to keep reading' - Oliver Bullough, author of Moneyland
