Now Richard Desmond has lost his libel case against Tom Bower maybe we will at last see a biography of the controversial Express owner published.
During the case, Bower's legal team suggested that Desmond had taken legal action over the Black book after learning of another, as yet unpublished volume – a biography of Desmond himself, provisionally entitled Rough Trader.
Bower was said to be planning a Desmond biography a few years ago but went on to write his book about Conrad Black, which attracted the writ from Desmond.
You've got to hand it to Bower. He's taken on Robert Maxwell, Conrad Black and Richard Desmond - and won.
