Christopher Lawford's narration is painful, poignant, and inspiring. He pulls no punches as he tells his terrifying story. The son of Rat Pack movie star Peter Lawford and JFK's sister Patricia, he grew up with Washington politicos and Hollywood royalty. The highs of the privileged life are submerged in family tragedies, and Lawford's descent into alcohol and drug addiction. Even as he reveals Kennedy anecdotes, there are dark undertones. Though there's no self-pity in his voice as he relates fighting his way out of the hell he was in, the listener can't help but feel his pain and rejoice in his redemption.
