Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Patterson] crosses into political nonfiction with this juicy and entertaining look at a family that continues to wield power and influence.” Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and New York Times bestselling author
When I wrote my first novel after several nonfiction works about politics, James Patterson lovingly lambasted me for infringing on his thriller territory. Now I know how he feels as he crosses into political nonfiction with this juicy and entertaining look at a family that continues to wield power and influence. He's too good--it isn't fair! Jake Tapper, CNN anchor and author of The Hellfire Club-
“A breezy history of the Kennedy family, from patriarch Joe Sr. in the 1920s to John Jr.’s plane crash in 1999. ‘In telling the family story, you can also tell the story of this country,’ Patterson says.” Washington Post
