A strong hard X‐ray luminosity from a blazar flags the presenc e of a very powerful jet. If the jet power is in turn related to the mass accretion rate, the mo st luminous hard X‐ray blazars should pinpoint the largest accretion rates, and thus the la rgest black hole masses. These ideas are confirmed by the Swift satellite observations of the blazar S5 0014+813, at the red shift z = 3.366. Swift detected this source with all its three instruments, from th e optical to the hard X‐rays. Through… Expand
