US$ 10.99
An extraordinary story of two of the world’s most powerful men, and the femme fatale who came between them. 

Peter Evans has been researching the life and times of Aristotle Onassis for more than two decades; he interviewed not only Onassis himself (in preparation for his biography, Ari), but scores of his intimates. But even after his acclaimed biography was published in the 1990s, his research continued—and the revelations he unearthed are mind-boggling. At the core of his reporting—and of this riveting book—is the story of the longtime rivalry between Onassis and the Kennedy clan. It was a story that began in the 1950s, when Robert F. Kennedy arranged to have the shipping magnate barred from trade with the U.S. It extended most famously into the presidency of JFK, when First Lady Jackie Kennedy accepted an invitation to visit Onassis’s yacht, without her husband, and against his wishes—a liaison now recognized to have been the start of a relationship that would lead to the couple’s marriage in 1968. But until now the real, ignoble culmination of the battle between Onassis and the Kennedys has never been uncovered.

Filled with the firsthand accounts of the men—and especially women—who knew him best, Nemesis will be sure to make headlines worldwide.
