The True Story of Aristotle Onassis, Jackie O and the Love Triangle that Brought Down the Kennedys
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 continuedand the revelations he unearthed are mind-boggling. At the core of his reportingand of this riveting bookis 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 Onassiss yacht, without her husband, and against his wishesa liaison now recognized to have been the start of a relationship that would lead to the couples 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 menand especially womenwho knew him best, Nemesis will be sure to make headlines worldwide.
