As a child, author John H. Davis spent summers with Jackie and the Bouviers and was like a member of the family. In this, his third book on the aristocratic clan, Davis covers Jackie's life until her first wedding. Mr. Davis possessed great disdain for Jackie's mother and includes many nasty details about her--including how she hired a young woman to trap her husband in verifiable infidelity. He also writes that a close friend of Jackie's father later moved to Texas and became the "principal mentor and friend" to Lee Harvey Oswald--a revelation that puts a new twist on the conspiracy theory.From the Publisher:
