Summary, etc.:
"From award-winning Wall Street Journal reporters Justin Scheck and Bradley Hope (coauthor of Billion Dollar Whale), a revelatory look at the inner workings of the world's most powerful ruling family, the royal family of Saudi Arabia, revealing how a rift within that family produced Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, aka MBS, a charismatic leader with a ruthless streak"-- Provided by publisher.
Mohammed bin Salman convinced the world that his desire to reform the kingdom was sincere. Then he began to betray an erratic interior beneath the polish laid on by scores of consultants and public relations experts. Allegations of his extreme brutality and excess began to slip out, including the brutal assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Hope and Scheck show how MBS' precipitous rise coincided with the fraying of the simple bargain that had been at the head of US-Saudi relations for more than 80 years: oil, for military protection. Saudi Arabia has the potential to become an unstable failed state and a magnet for Islamic extremists. -- adapted from jacket
