This review is from: Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson III (Vintage) (Paperback)
Caro really deserves recognition for a weighty but extraordinarily detailed account of Johnston's years in the Senate. Occasionally the minute detail which Caro deploys chafes but the story itself is compelling. Johnston is both ogre and saint. He is presented as so self serving, ambitious and ruthless in pursuit of his goals that the notion that he might have been involved in the assasination of John F Kennedy in order to achieve his long held ambition of becoming President can not be overlooked. A thoroughly enjoyable and very well written book.
