Publisher's Summary

Richard Hack separates truth from fiction to reveal the most hidden secrets of Hoover's private life and expose his previously undisclosed conduct and actions which threatened to compromise the security of the entire nation.
Based on freshly uncovered files and personal documents as well as over 100,000 pages of FBI memos and State Department papers, Hack rips the lid off the FBI Director's facade of propriety to detail a life replete with sexual indiscretions, criminal behavior and a long-standing alliance with the Mafia.

What disappointed you about Puppetmaster?

Too much irrelevant detail; not enough detail on any of the key incidents and events in which he was intimately involved - especially post the Kennedy assassination but also the relationship with organised crime. A very limited insight into his life influences and what may have influenced his thinking about key episodes in the history of the FBI

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Dan Cashman?

Not able to comment as I do not know the choices and a number of other factors.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It could be abbreviated to give a general overview of a timeline.
