Read full description of the books:
Intriguing look into a character who may, or may not, have had a large role in our history. Was she JFK's confidant through the Cuban Missile Crisis?
What I found fascinating, and led to writing my latest book, is the fact she was murdered almost a year after JFK's assassination and the killer was never found. The way she was killed-- bullet to the heart and head, suggests a professional. Even more interesting, is the day after she was killed, Khrushchev was forced out of power.
It's these quirks of history that often give me the best ideas for writing. Truth is stranger than fiction.
Did Angleton from the CIA really destroy her diary? Was it even the real diary?
This book is an intimate look into the lives of the powerful in Washington; an underbelly few have evr experienced.
