This was one of the most vile books I've read in years. I believe that the author has his material verified as there were more footnotes here (almost a book by itself). Not only does it discuss Onassis' duplicity in many areas, it is not hard to believe that he was involved the the RFK assassination. But the revelations about Jackie were astonishing. I always felt she married both JFK and Onassis for selfish reasons and this seems to prove it out. As to the ruthlessness of RFK, that's probably true because he learned from the master, his father. As to everyone sleeping around, they certainly all felt entitled and didn't care who they slept with - the Kennedy men learned that from "Old Joe" as well since he always flaunted some woman in front of Rose. They all prove you can do anything you want as long as you have the money and the power. A truly useless and degrading way of life and a tragic end for most of those who have lived this way. The book kept me interested until the end but I would warn anyone who chooses to buy it or read it to beware - it is appalling!!!

Well researched account of the courtship and marriage of Jackie and Ari, and the link between Onassis and the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. The myth of the demure and virtuous Jackie is put solidly to rest. Sexual flings bordering on the incestuous, adultery, money grabbing, suspicious deaths...this book has it all. Well written and sourced, definitely worth reading.

Hmmm...to believe or not to believe, that is the question. If you like to read a bunch of hearsay (mostly from dead people) about the Kennedy and Onassis families, this is the book for you. Additionally, I was thoroughly unimpressed with the author's attempt to justify his writing with a plethora of footnotes. Alas, it was not my pick for book club this month so I was obligated to do my best to finish.

This is an interesting book to read. I read it a few years ago. Recently I read America's Queen and then re-read Nemesis. I found many conflicting *facts* compared to that and other books and an ambiguous ending. There is just too much hearsay that you are asked to believe.
