Reckless [eAudioBook]

Rothmiller, Mike2024
Drawing on new interviews and previously hidden police and intelligence files, Reckless finally reveals the full corruption of America's Camelot. 'Reads like James Ellroy'- Daily Telegraph 'JFK didn't hesitate to employ deception, espionage and covert action' - Timothy Naftali, Wall Street Journal John F. Kennedy's life is promoted by sentimental and careless myth-makers as pure legend. But a sinister shadow lies across it. His death was such a shocking event that the vivid memory of his assassination still blinds us to much of what went before. When it is recalled, it is almost always seen through the prism of that single, terrible day in Dallas, obscuring the dark corners of his time and government. For JFK, power was soundbites over policy, the White House a fairytale castle, and the President manifested as a hypersexualised movie star. As with Hollywood, the willing suspension of belief was required. Reality imposes no such limits. Drawing on essential new material derived from decades-long investigations, Detective Mike Rothmiller and Douglas Thompson shatter the secrets and lies with a revelatory and dramatic true-life thriller focusing on JFK and Robert F. Kennedy, both before and after they bought the White House. All the usual suspects, from FBI titan J. Edgar Hoover and billionaire Howard Hughes to CIA rogue agents and Mob hitmen appear in a narrative which sweeps from wartime London to the salons of Washington, from the bedrooms of Hollywood to the torture chambers and jungles of central America, and on to revolutionary Cuba and the tragic, bloody political carousel of Vietnam.
