What People are Saying About This

Erik Larson

From the violence of its gripping opening to the sorrow of its close, this is an astonishing and eye-opening account of the vendetta—obsessive, intrigue-filled, hatred-tinged—that pitted Robert F. Kennedy against Teamster boss Jimmy Hoffa, and nearly consumed both. Amazing stuff, really—a triumph of investigation and revelation. --Erik Larson, author of DEAD WAKE

BRAVO!! JAMES NEFF IN VANDETTA:BOBBY KENNEDY VS JIMMY HOFFA has taken pages out of history, known and unknown facts and put together a book that tells the tale of a Senator Bobby Kennedy going after one of the US most infamous figures and leader of the Teamsters Union Jimmy Hoffa. Hoffa and Kennedy square off in the 50's and 60s. This factual account of the war between the Kennedys and Hoffa is told brilliantly and without bias. Just how far would the Kennedy's go to bring down Hoffa? Just far would Hoffa go to bring down the Kennedy's? Read this book and find out. In it you will also discover just how Hoover felt about the Kennedy's and vice versa. It was a fantastic read & I recommend it to anyone who loves reading on Hoffa, the Kennedys' or just loves history.
