Shocking revelations and accusations besmirched the pristine reputation of a man who was more powerful than some of the presidents he served--long reigning FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Was he really a closet homosexual? Did he turn a blind eye to organized crime for secret rewards from Mobsters? Did he frame those who were supposed security risks? Here are 13 hours of answers. The serious inquirer may wish to consult the print version for its notes and plates. But for all, this Dan Cashman version is well worth attention. Cashman makes every line an adventure. He even tries to give the quotes a sense of the character of the speaker. While the effort may be in questionable taste, it does humanize and enliven the narrative. Y.R.
