Anti-establishment. Womanizer. Wanderer. Iconoclast. Meet Largo Winch – the man who, at 26, just inherited the W Group – a multi-national corporation that’s worth well over $10 Billion. That’s the character Jean Van Hamme created to be the starring hero of a series that takes readers into the dangerously seductive world of corporate boardrooms and unscrupulous men who play for the highest stakes.
It’s no surprise then, that the books inspired a video game, a TV series and two movies – one of which starred Sharon Stone.
