Summary:
The last untold story of Watergate--by the FBI director who maintained his silence for more than thirty years. L. Patrick Gray III was the man caught in the middle. Though a lifelong Republican, he was considered a threat by Nixon. Closing in on the conspiracy, Gray became the target of one of Watergate's most shocking acts--Nixon's "smoking gun" attempt to have the CIA stop the FBI investigation. And when the U.S. Senate focused its attention on Gray in April 1973, the White House left him to "twist slowly, slowly in the wind." This book is Gray's account of what really happened during that crucial year, based on an unpublished first-person account and previously secret documents. He reveals the intrigue and perfidy that permeated Washington, and he tells of his complex relationship with his top deputy, Mark Felt, raising disturbing questions about the man purported to be Deep Throat.--From publisher description.
