This book tells it all. Not only does it answer the question about how Hoffa died but also gives strong "hints" regarding the death of John F. Kennedy. I found this to be the best book ever written on this subject.

This book answers so many questions about some of the greatest crime stories of our time. I appreciated the author's ability to humanize Frank Sheeran, despite his long history as a "house painter"
