In 1964, Mary Pinchot Meyer, the beautiful, rebellious, and intelligent ex-wife of a top CIA official, was killed on a quiet Georgetown towpath near her home. Mary Meyer was a secret mistress of President John F. Kennedy, whom she had known since private school days, and after her death, reports that she had kept a diary set off a tense search by her brother-in-law, newsman Ben Bradlee, and CIA spymaster James Jesus Angleton. But the only suspect in her murder was acquitted, and today her life and death are still a source of intense speculation, as Nina Burleigh reveals in her widely praised book, the first to examine this haunting story. From the Trade Paperback edition.
TommieMarie74I used to love perusing my mom‘s bookshelves. I found several gems there over the years.2y
ReviewsbylolaSounds good. I read a memoir written by one of JFK‘s mistresses and thought it was great. Although it‘s hard to reconcile liking JFK with the fact that he was also a shitty, philandering husband.2y
