This book tells the story of Calouste Gul­benkian, who was known as ‘Mr Five Per Cent’ for his per­sonal share of Mid­dle East oil. When Gul­benkian died in 1955 at the age of 86, he was the rich­est man in the world, hav­ing bro­kered top-level — and of­ten mys­te­ri­ous — oil deals in a ca­reer span­ning half a cen­tury.
