Roy Cohn was perhaps the most outrageous personality and the most unrepentant opportunist of our time. His effect on lives and institutions was profound. Presidents, media barons, and countless celebrities, business moguls, gangsters, judges, and endless politicians crossed Cohn's path as clients, friends, and enemies, including J. Edgar Hoover, Senator Joe McCarthy, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, Ronald Reagan, Robert Kennedy, Barbara Walters, Si Newhouse, Cardinal Spellman, Donald Trump, Fat Tony Salerno, Louis Nizer, Claus von Bulow, Rupert Murdoch, George Steinbrenner, and many more. Cohn's power was so widespread and his life so complex that it is only in this extraordinary biography that the full story of Roy Cohn is revealed.
