The Friends of Richard Nixon
The "Boss of Bullet-Lettres" zeroes in on the true political crime story of the century, Watergate. The author brings an attorney's precision and an acclaimed novelist's nuance to "the biggest trial and the greatest theater the country ever saw...the greatest civics lesson in history," as he ironically describes the Senate Select Committee on Campaign Practices hearings. Beginning with the original trial of the Watergate burglars and ending with the "prosecution" of Richard Kleindienst, Higgins sorts through the events, the motives, and the betrayals that tipped an entire administration into a morass of criminal conduct. -- Bookjacket.
