Desperate Bargain: Why Jimmy Hoffa Had to Die
This thrilling documentary is woven from the drama surrounding the life and death of James Riddle Hoffa, one of America's most publicized - yet least known - power brokers. For the first time it is revealed how Hoffa - the late president of the Teamsters Union - was tried for murder by the Mafia when he was barely out of his teens. Here for the first time you'll read how Hoffa made a Faustian bargain with the underworld; how the bargain catapulted him to power and riches; and how, like Faust, the bargain ultimately corrupted and destroyed him. The book also reveals how the Watergate White House stole the country's biggest union; how Hoffa built the underworld's biggest bank; and how the mobs used this bank to capture Las Vegas.
