This is the book Frank Sinatra failed to stop, the unauthorized biography of one of the most elusive public figures of our time. Celebrated journalist Kitty Kelley spent three years researching government documents (Mafia-related material, wiretaps and secret testimony) and interviewing more than 800 people in Sinatra's life (family, colleagues, law-enforcement officers, personal friends). Fully documented, highly detailed and filled with revealing anecdotes, here is the penetrating story of the explosively controversial and undeniably multi-talented legend who ruled the entertainment industry for more than 50 years.

"The most eye-opening celebrity biography of our time." (William Safire, The New York Times)
"A compelling page-turner...Kitty Kelley's book has made all future Sinatra biographies virtually redundant." (Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)
Just any untruths, if there are any.
I would,if they were Sinatra fans.
It did but at some points got old and repetitious.
I did not know all this about Frank Sinatra. I knew of the possible mafia ties, but not of the spoiled kid that grew to a spoiled old man. The pain he caused many people around him and strangers. I liked the book, there were a lot of references, but Kitty Kelley was a name I was told not to trust. By The end of the book I wish I could go back in time and punch a young Frank Sinatra in the face and put him in his place.
