I do not know whether it is even possible to destroy the lies and myths about J. Edgar Hoover, but Ray Wannallís book goes a long way in setting the record straight. Whether it is Hooverís position on wiretaps, the Houston Plan or the origin of the infamous letter to Dr. King, the facts are clearly stated and well documented. This book is a giant step in balacing the scales of justice.
Ambassador James E. Nolan, Jr.
I have known and worked with the author of The Real J. Edgar Hoover for over forty years. Because of his various spheres of supervision in the FBI, primarily FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C., he is in a unique position to know the innermost workings of the FBI and itís greatest secrets. Ray Wannallís considerable research, great ability and integrity make this an excellent book to read. It is refreshing to find the truth as opposed to the tabloid-like, greedy, distortion of history found in some books, TV shows and newspapers.
