Cover of Bobby and J Edgar

"I couldn't stop reading this book...." When it came to the Kennedys "I felt I already knew everything that could possibly be written....Boy! Oh boy! Was I ever wrong.... [Hersh's] take on JFK's slaying is incredible: Dramatic, startling, convincing...."
— Liz Smith, Star Columinist, New York Post, June 12, 2008

(author of The Mickey Mantle Novel):
"There are a thousand Kennedy books and hundreds of books on the FBI, and I've read a lot of them, but none has what this one has: the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God. J. Edgar Hoover, the protector of our country, was no such thing, it turned out."

"Historian and journalist Hersh (The Old Boys) might well have titled his excellent book 'Collision Course,' for that is exactly what J. Edgar Hoover and the Kennedys were on from as early as the 1930's... What Hersh brings to the party is important new reseaarch and intensive analysis..."
