Overview

Peter Evans's biography of Aristotle Onassis, Ari, metwith great acclaim when it was published in 1986. Ariprovided the world with an unprecedented glimpse of theGreek shipping magnate's orbit of dizzying wealth, twistedintrigues, and questionable mores. Not long after the bookappeared, however, Onassis's daughter Christina and hislongtime business partner Yannis Georgakis hinted toEvans that he had missed the "real story" — one that provedOnassis's intrigues had deadly results. "I must begin,"Georgakis said, "with the premise that, for Onassis, BobbyKennedy was unfinished business from way back..."

His words launched Evans into the heart of a story thattightly bound Onassis not to Jackie's first husband, but tohis ambitious younger brother Bobby. A bitter rivalryemerged between Bobby and Ari long before Onassis andJackie had even met. Nemesis reveals the tangled thread ofevents that linked two of the world's most powerful men intheir intense hatred for one another and uncovers thesurprising role played by the woman they both loved. Theirpower struggle unfolds against a heady backdrop ofinternational intrigue: Bobby Kennedy's discovery of theGreek shipping magnate's shady dealings, which led him tobar Onassis from trade with the United States; Onassis'sattempt to control much of Saudi Arabia's oil; Onassis'suntimely love affair with Jackie's married sister LeeRadziwill; and his bold invitation to First Lady Jackie tojoin him on his yacht — without the president. Just as theself-made Greek tycoon gloried in the chance to stir thewrath of the Kennedys, they struggled unsuccessfully tobreak his spell over the woman who held the key to all oftheir futures. After Jack's death, Bobby became ever closerto Camelot's holy widow, and fought to keep her frommarrying his sworn rival. But Onassis rarely failed to getwhat he wanted, and Jackie became his wife shortly afterBobby was killed.

Through extensive interviews with the closest friends,lovers, and relatives of Onassis and the Kennedys, longtimejournalist Evans has uncovered the shocking culmination ofthe Kennedy-Onassis-Kennedy love triangle: AristotleOnassis was at the heart of the plot to kill Bobby Kennedy.Meticulously tracing Onassis's connections in the world ofterrorism, Nemesis presents compelling evidence that hefinanced the assassination — including a startling confessionthat has gone unreported for nearly three decades. Alongthe way, this groundbreaking work also daringly paintsthese international icons in all of their true colors. FromEvans's deeply nuanced portraits of the charismatic Greekshipping magnate and his acquisitive iconic bride to hisprobing and revelatory look into the events that shaped anera, Nemesis is a work that will not be soon forgotten.

    'Sort of Looking'

    I am still sort of looking for the evidence. I needed more documentation to feel comfortable with the Ari, Jackie, and Bobby triangle, but I absolutely did read through the final page of the book, lay the book down, and decide that I am happy to live in small town America.

    Nemesis Leaves You Confused.

    I have read quiet a bit on the Kennedys and although much in Nemesis about Ari`s dealings are new to me, I found the attempt by the author to tie Onassis to RFK death a leap.He sets the reader up for all kinds of intrigue for example Alexander Onassis safty deposit box etc....yet under no circumstances does the author have definitive proof Ari was involved in the planning of the RFK murder.In fact any of the evidence he produced would not even make it to a Grand Jury. That was the only part of the book that was a let down.The rest of the book is fascinating reading.

    A Book Which May Confirm the Suspicions of Many

    Although many of the people who attested to the 'real' assisin of RFK in this book are now, and have been deceased for many years and consequently cannot be counted on for confirmation, it was still very interesting to finally have in print the fact that Ari Onassis had RFK assasinated. I found this book to be very riveting indeed. I could not put it down, though I was disappointed that there was no mention of Onassis being responsible for the assasination of JFK as well (though perhaps it was alluded to a few times as the author says a key player in the Onassis/Kennedy saga told him 'you missed the real story'). So many people the world over hold the characters of this history in such high esteem. It was refreshing to read the truth in the respect that the players in this historical writing were an extremely ruthless bunch - the whole lot of them. Even so, for avid Kennedy/Onassis enthusiasts it is all old news. Simply reasurance of the thoughts many of us have held in the backs of our minds for years. I found the quote by Christina Onassis concerning the settlement of her fathers estate pertaining to the 26 million Mrs. Onassis walked away with especially intriguing '....it was blood money and I reckoned she earned every penny of it.' An absolute must read for those who are still attempting to figure out the assasinations.
