A tour through the secret corridors of power by its best guide. A story of a life before the cameras and in the shadows. A man whose sex life was lived in a closet that sported neon lights. A man who died of AIDS while campaigning against gay rights.
Roy Cohn was sought out by the movers and shakers of politics, industry, the law, the arts ... and the mob.

A cascade of dollars when through his hands, and yet he died broke. All he had was himself.
