Devil's Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America's Secret Government
From the reviews of BROTHERS: 'Brothers brilliantly evokes the Kennedys and their court - a brash yet idealistic fraternity reminiscent of Mad Men and The West Wing ... Expertly researched through inner-circle interviews, the book suggests a conspiracy was also behind Bobby's murder in 1968, and names two spooks who Talbot believes were part of the JFK Dallas plot' Guardian 'Bracing ... full of shocking moments and juicy tidbits' Los Angeles Times 'Pulitzer Prize-bait ... [a] manic and near-perfect tale of the Kennedy brothers ... shows us America's Camelot in a brand-new light' San Francisco Weekly 'Riveting, disturbing and sometimes unbearably sad' Irish Times
