Summary On December 8, 2014, the body of property tycoon Scot Young was found impaled on the railings three floors below his £3million Marylebone penthouse. The police verdict was: no foul play. Apparently by coincidence, five of his inner circle also recently met with untimely demise. In this "Ring of Death," three also suffered mysterious falls. Russian billionaire Boris Berezovksy, adversary of Vladimir Putin, was found hanged in his Berkshire home. Word has it that all the men who died lost huge money in a poorly judged secret property scheme in Russia, code named "Project Moscow" and masterminded by Berezovsky. Young was engaged in a court battle with his ex-wife over money, and she challenged him weeks before he died by his ex-wife over ties to the notorious Adams family, linked to 25 global murders, for money laundering services. It was also said that the Russian mafia had dangled him over a balcony at the Dorchester after he had fallen foul of them. Doubtless, Young was a man mixing in bad circles. In this brilliantly researched book, author Gordon Bowers uncovers and discusses the facts behind the shocking theories surrounding Scot Young and the horrific, yet officially coincidental, "Ring of Death."
