Critical reviews via big apple instances bestselling writer Jim Hougan
“John Meier’s tale is absolutely fascinating and, i think, very important. I’ve spent a couple of years learning the yank cryptocracy and there's no query in my brain that Meier is dead-right whilst he says that the CIA was once operating the Hughes empire. So, too, with Intertel. i used to be the 1st journalist to jot down concerning the company (in Harper’s), and it’s obvious to me, because it is to Meier, that its marketing strategy was once drawn up in Langley.
That acknowledged, this can be complex stuff. the best way I see it, American politics from 1954-74 is a continuum outlined by means of the fight among the Richard Nixon apparat and the Kennedy computer, with the Howard Hughes empire serving as a fulcrum in what amounted to a mystery battle for the country’s soul. CIA spooks, mobsters on 3 coasts and a coven of Texas oligarchs outfitted the “magic box”.
John Meier’s tale is a fungible one within the experience that it may well function the root for a rock-’em-sock-’em television sequence, movie or documentary in regards to the Deep country. through that, I suggest the cryptocracy that has advanced because the chilly conflict alongside a political continuum outlined through assassination, surveillance and cover-up.
The Howard Hughes association, with its ties to Texas oil, Las Vegas playing, Hollywood and the CIA used to be the key fulcrum of that continuum, mediating a political fight that, by means of turns, observed the Kennedy’s devastated via homicide and the Nixon camp destroyed via what appears, more and more, like a gentle coup d’etat. during this, John Meier used to be a Zelig-like determine, instantaneously a witness and a player, so well-connected - and so deeply concerned - that it can in basic terms have resulted in exile or a grave.
The point of interest of that story, from which every little thing else proceeds, is clearly the key conflict for the Hughes empire.
If it have been a movie, it'd be as intriguing because the Bourne identification, and that i imagine it'll pull within the related viewers (and for lots of of a similar purposes) that either The Bourne identification and JFK did.”
