5.0 out of 5 stars A TERRIFIC READ, 11 Jun. 2004

This review is from: Nemesis: The True Story. Aristotle Onassis, Jackie O, and the Love Triangle That Brought Down the Kennedys (Hardcover)
In Nemesis, Peter Evans makes startling revelations about the involvement of Aristotle Onassis in a plot to murder Robert Kennedy. I read this author's biography of Onassis a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. This book is even better.

A two-family saga about two dying breeds, a political thriller, even, in a perverse way, a love story, Nemesis tells the story of two powerful men - Onassis and Bobby Kennedy - and Jackie O, the woman they loved in their own fashion. Evans's revelations about the mores, etiquettes, and rituals, of their world, makes this a fascinationg study of a society as well as a compelling story of murder, greed, and lust in high places. Often poignant - especially his portrait of Jackie O, who emerges as a surprisingly strong, articulate, modern woman who knows exactly what she wants and is determined to get it - and sardonic, this is a stimulating and provocative read.
I don't know whether all the secrets he dishes along the way can be taken as Gospel, but his sources are impressive, his research is persuasive, and I believed every word of it. I loved it. A terrific read.
