Jack Kennedy had it all. And he used it all - his father's fortune, and his own beauty, wit and power with a heedless, reckless daring.
In this work, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, shows us a John F.
Kennedy insulated from the normal consequences of behaviour long before he entered the White House.
The Kennedys could do exactly what they wanted, and could evade any charge brought against them - the Kennedys wrote their own moral code. And Kennedys trusted only Kennedys. Jack appointed his brother Bobby keeper of the secrets the family debt to organized crime, the real state of Jack's health, the sources of his election victories, the plots to murder foreign leaders, and the President's intentions in Vietnam.
