Anthony Summers has covered wars and other world news events for the BBC. He has written four previous books, including "Conspiracy", an acclaimed study of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and "Goddess", a best-selling biography of Marilyn Monroe. Summers lives in Ireland with his wife, Robbyn, and has two sons.

Review:

"I read Official and Confidential with mounting horror, fascination, revulsion... Enthralling" -- Paul Theroux "Summers' book is not just a history of a single hero-sized hypocrite, it is a history of a vast national delusion" -- Hilary Mantel * Spectator * "The exposure we have been waiting for these last forty years" -- Norman Mailer "Garbage... Innuendo, lies" -- Cartha DeLoach, former close aide to Hoover "The book is more exciting, and more damning, than the film...This is bold, excoriating, unmissable stuff." * Independent on Sunday *
