This review is from: Leak: Why Mark Felt Became Deep Throat (Hardcover)
Max Holland's "The Kennedy Assassination Tapes" was the result of prodigous and scrupulous research. "Leak" is a splendid encore.
It is tautly, crisply written and often suspenseful. I read it in a couple of stimumulating sittings even as I lingered in awe at the scope of the source notes. Holland explains Watergate intrigues in ways that few Americans would have previously appreciated. The cast of Nixon administration and FBI characters is vividly portrayed, and Deep Throat (Mark Felt) emerges as anything but the noble, selfless secret source of media mythology.
Highly recommended for generalist readers and specialists alike.
