This review is from: Official And Confidential: Official and Confidential e of J Edgar Hoover: Secret Life of J.Edgar Hoover (Hardcover)
Anthony Summers is a superb author and this book on J Edgar Hoover shows us how corrupt people were in successive US governments, the CIA and FBI. This man was a pervert and a cross dresser, which was his own business, but he had the audacity to hound people better than him, whom he felt didn't live up to his warped view of the world, including Martin Luther King. He had so much dirt on everyone he felt he was safe.. and he was to a point.. as the Mafia had 'fixed' him.. I couldn't put it down.. as with all Anthony Summer's books.. I theorise Nixon had him finished him off.
