Synopses & Reviews
One of the outstanding American crime writers of his generation turns his talents to the dizzying whirlpool of American politics in the Kennedy era, with perhaps his most ambitious novel to date. Three men move just beneath the surface of power; Bondurant, Howard Hughes' right hand man, Boyd, working for the FBI to infiltrate the Kennedys, and Littel, seeking redemption for Bobby Kennedy's drive against organised crime....
Set in America in 1958, this is a story of three men beneath the glossy surface of power, allied to the makers and shakers of the era. As the festering discontent of the age burns in these men's hearts, the Bay of Pigs ends in calamity, the Mob clamours for payback, and Kennedy is assassinated.
