It could have happened to anyone.
J. Reynolds
The authors did a good job of research and of explaining why alternate theories make less sense than their hypothesis.
Phil
The authors investigate every angle of Kennedy's timeline of events.

Since the only other review of this book doesn't make any sense, I thought it necessary to write a coherent one. This book is truly incredible. It proves Ted Kennedy's guilt with clarity and integrity. The facts are simply undeniable - if it weren't for Ted, Mary Jo would be alive today. The Kennedy family has long been America's sweethearts. It is high time that they are revealed as murders, philanderers, cheaters, liars and losers. Sorry, but this is coming from an Irish Catholic who is ashamed to admit that the Kennedys claim some ties to the land of her origin! They are all bad but Ted Kennedy is the worst. He should be behind bars- this book will tell you why. Read it - it's a well done piece of detective work and it will hold your interest. It may also make your blood boil - but that's not the authors' fault! DOWN WITH THE KENNEDYS!

"During the evening of July 18, 1969, Sen. Edward Kennedy attended a private party on Chappaquiddick Island. He left the party with Mary Jo Kopechne some time between 11:15 p.m. and 12:45 a.m. on July 19, 1969. They drove toward an isolated beach, but never made it because Sen. Kennedy's car went off the Dyke Bridge into Poucha Pond. He emerged alive and took almost ten hours to report the accident. Mary Jo did not escape from his submerged car and died sometime during the night. Her death has been the only certainty in the tragedy. Everything else has been shrouded in contradiction, controversy and denials."

After this opening paragraph, the authors of DEATH AT CHAPPAQUIDDICK clearly state what they set out to do: write a complete account of the incident at Chappaquiddick. "The facts draw their own conclusion. Chappaquiddick is the Senator's own doing... It is a very serious issue that shows how a potential President of the United States reacted during his time of crisis. For this reason, Chappaquiddick cannot be ignored."

I opened this book at 8:00 p.m. and finished it at 11:00 p.m. Could NOT put it down. It's only 217 pages long, but it absolutely, positively devastates any defense, or remorse, offered or expressed by Ted Kennedy about his actions that night.

I found it particularly damning that 17 telephone calls were placed, all billed to Sen. Kennedy's credit card, either by Ted Kennedy or his associates. Five of these were placed just after the accident, before Kennedy left Chappaquiddick for his hotel in Edgartown. The first to the family compound in Hyannis Port -- a call lasting 21 minutes. Ted Sorensen, a Kennedy advisor, and Kennedy's attorney, Burke Marshall, were also telephoned before he left the island.

Format: Paperback
The book is a bit dated. However, that also means that the information and viewpoint is closer to the event. I didn't find it to be juat a "witch hunt" on Teddy - but there is no doubt that this book opens up many questions about Ted Kennedy that will more than likely not have any better answers than this book offers. The two people who really knew the entire story of what really happend are both dead now - This leaves no political motive to read this, although there may have been motives to write it - just a sad episode in American history.

This was such a major episode in the shaping of Teddy's political and personal life, that it should not be swept under the rug as a minor episode that didn't matter. A young lady's life was lost and Kennedy's explanations of what happend and what appears to be special treatment beasue of who he was, is a lesson in how American justice can be manipulated.

No matter if you are a democrat, republican, independent, or history buff, you should take the time to read this book. I read the book so that the life of an unknown young lady, Mary Jo, could have value to those who never had the chance to know her. There are lessons to be learned, no matter your view on the Kennedys.

Someone looking for a full view of what took place should also read other books on the subject. This book is not an exhaustive historical analysis of the events.

Format: Paperback
The people in Massachusetts who overlook the real Teddy are every bit as guilty as the jury who knowingly set O.J. Simpson free. Teddy has neither conscience nor soul. On a warm July night in 1969, Teddy had been drinking heavily, demanded the car keys from his chauffeur, and took Mary Jo for a one-way ride. He drove off a bridge he shouldn't have been on, but managed to escape. Mary Jo was not so fortunate. Ten hours later, he essentially blamed her death on Gargan and Markham. Teddy didn't even have a valid driver's license, but voila!...the next morning it WAS valid. Teddy's reputation for over four decades has been well-chronicled: an academic fraud, a philanderer, a cheat, a drunk, a liar, a charlatan, and a political hack. As recently as 1987, he was caught flagrante dilecto with a woman half his age in a taxpayer-funded building. Yet voters in the great Commonwealth of Massachussets continue to reward this elitist monster. The jury in the Simpson trial acquiesced to intellectual dishonesty. Massachussets voters are doing precisely the same every time they cast a vote for Teddy.
