JAMES PATTERSON'S NON-FICTION MASTERPIECE________________________________Kennedys were always taught to win at all costs. And they did - but the costs were unimaginable . . . Across decades and generations, the Kennedys have been a family of charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel.

Their name is synonymous with American royalty. Their commitment to public service is legendary. But, for all the successes, the family has been blighted by assassinations, fatal accidents, drug and alcohol abuse and sex scandals. To this day, the Kennedys occupy a unique, contradictory place in the world's imagination: at once familiar and unknowable; charmed and cursed.

The Kennedy Curse is a revealing, fascinating account of America's most famous family, as told by the world's most trusted storyteller. ________________________________Also published as The House of Kennedy in the US. 'When I wrote my first novel after several non-fiction works about politics, James Patterson lovingly lambasted me for infringing on his thriller territory.

Now I know how he feels as he crosses into non-fiction politics with this juicy and entertaining look at a political 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
