"J. Edgar Hoover, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years ... was feared, admired, reviled and revered, a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it.

But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life"--Container
