Interesting historical era (1954) but the author is a hi-profile talking head/journalist with CNN and the anachronisms and chronological errors are off-putting to say the least. Needs a better editor.

O.K., Tapper is not a Deaver - let's put that out first so thriller is a bit of an overstatement. However, the skilful combination of fact and fiction (and conspiracy thinking) makes you realize just how corrupt Washington is and, indeed, always has been. Fans of history will like this well-researched book.
