Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bill Henry has given us a highly readable and riveting account of one of America's great mysteries - the dark world of Jimmy Hoffa and what happened to the brash and brassy labor boss."
Tom Brokaw, NBC Universal



“High praise and gratitude for Bill Henry’s gripping account of the fight for the soul of the labor movement, and American politics.  Fatal Alliance is a real life thriller meticulously detailing Jimmy Hoffa’s rise as one the most powerful and talented union leaders in American history but whose fight for working men and women is tragically shattered by his ties to the mob. As a young girl I watched my father Robert Kennedy in the Senate Racket Hearings investigate those who corrupted unions and politics  and am grateful for Henry’s determination to tell what happened to Jimmy Hoffa and why.” 
Kathleen Kennedy Townsend



“Jimmy Hoffa was one of the most compelling, if not tragic, American figures of the 20th century--from his time as a union boss, to his prosecution and conviction for an assortment of crimes, to his mysterious death. In Fatal Alliance, E. William Henry has authored a well-researched and interesting book about this longtime teamster leader, one that can serve as a reminder of Lord Acton’s dictum, ‘Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’”
James A. Baker, III, 61st U.S. Secretary of State
