I've read AMERICAN TABLOID three times. It never disappoints. Bloody fantastic stuff. I'm going to re-read the follow up - the cold six thousand - having reminded myself of some of the stuff in AT. I'd forgotten how wonderfully Ward Littel reinvents himself during AT. You wanna read a great book then this is the one for you .... JFK, RFK, J Edgar Hoover, Jimmy Hoffa, Sam Giancanna etc. rub shoulders with some truly great fictional creations.
