Please note, the ISBN brings this book up as a hardcover, but in fact it is a softcover book. I have TRIPLE checked the book and it always comes up this way.
Take the Mob, Howard Hughes, the CIA, J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI, Fidel Castro and the Cuban Exiles, the Kennedys (the father and 2 sons) and three indelible characters -- Kemper Boyd, Pete Bondurant, and Ward Littel -- toss them all together into a tightly woven narrative that reads like real American History even though it purports to be a novel, and you get a fast-paced, violent, gut-wrenching story of crime, conspiracy, and betrayal that begs to be believed as fact. James Ellroy pulls no punches and he throws quite a few. Whew! This one will wring you out and you'll love it.
