This is the incredible suspense novel that inspired the famous movie The Towering Inferno staring Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Faye Dunaway and William Holden. The World Communications Center is a glittering skyscraper that is fatally flawed in its design, compromised through dubious means. On opening night the building s systems fail spectacularly and the structure descends into violence and chaos, trapping the VIP guests of a gala opening celebration. It is up to the assembled governors and mayors, millionaires, government officials and ambassadors to find common cause if they are ever to survive the tower. Master storyteller Richard Martin Stern has crafted a six-hour thrill ride that leaves adrenal glands empty and jaws unhinged The Tower is a suspense classic that is not easily forgotten."
