Here is the groundbreaking, myth-shattering expose' that has created a national sensation, revealing the darkest secrets about J. Edgar Hoover, who ruled the FBI for nearly 50 years. His flagrant abuse of power and the public trust is disclosed here for the first time in it's shocking entirety. Inside you'll find the names, dates, the documented evidence of Hoovers double life and dirty tricks, including: eyewitness accounts of Hoovers closet homosexuality and alleged transvestism. Claims that Mafia blackmail rendered the FBI impotent against organized crime for vital decades. Irrefutable evidence that Hoover used smear tactics to manipulate presidents and members of Congress. How Hoover used his knowledge of JFK's womanizing to ensure that LBJ became vice president. And how Hoover subverted the Warren Commision probe into JFK's assassination.
