    Not particularly a story that breaks new ground but the extent to which the FBI tried to build a case against Frank Sinatra is surprising as detailed in this book The Sinatra Files offers up a lot of information but collapses under its own weight unfortunately as this book reads like a dossier of sorts If that was the goal then I guess it succeedsMost people with even general knowledge of Frank Sinatra's life probably have some semblance of the allegations of mob connections bolstered by his friendship with famed Chicago area mobster Sam Giancana There are a lot of details of how mobsters seemed to be affiliated with Sinatra's every move but ultimately there is no smoking gun that defines Sinatra as a mobster himself much to the chagrin of the Hoover Administration and the FBI Nevertheless the story of how much the FBI would read into Sinatra's actions is surprising if not scandalous overallSuch is the case with the FBI's attempt to uncover Frank Sinatra as a Communist sympathizer working in Hollywood and with clandestine ties to the red party at every turn The accusation was preposterous then and remains so by the conclusion of this book; Sinatra was no a Communist than most of the accused and the bona fide witchhunt that occurred during that era always makes for a compelling readThe supporting cast of characters in this book aren't portrayed in a glamorous light either within these pages JFK could not be defamed here but it would appear as though most of what is said is verifiable regarding his philandering ways In many ways this book is of an indictment of Kennedy than it ever is of SinatraWhile there may have been some unsavory activity and downright sleaziness in Frank Sinatra's life a case of being a mafia tied Communist it does not make What a strange period of time in the FBI's history though that it sought to defame celebrities of the highest order in order to protect the country A detailed and odd book but not necessarily one anyone should rush to read

    I love Sinatra and while this book got me listening to him non stop it was so hard to read I mean it just felt like copy and paste stuff And did anyone even bother to edit itit just kept repeating itself

  3. Kristen Marie Kristen Marie says:

    Extremely difficult to read More like a research paper rather than a book

  4. Mckinley Mckinley says:

    I was interested to see what the files contained and less interested about Sinatra

  5. Rushay Booysen Rushay Booysen says:

    A trail into the life of Frank Sinatra and his ties to the mobThe book features extensive tapping by the FBI and written reports on this croonerNot a real exciting read so dont expect much out of it

  6. Sherri Sherri says:

    Couldn't even finish it Very repeatious Seemed like every page or at least every other page repeated something that was in the book earlier

  7. Laura Laura says:

    If you're a fan this is a fun read just to gather some info on Baby Blue Eyes There isn't much of a plot and some of the information is blocked out All in all a pretty good read

  8. Kristin Kristin says:

    I thought I would be interested in this but I was wrong This involved a lot of skimming and forcing myself

  9. Matt Lehotzky Matt Lehotzky says:

    This book was horrible I was hoping to read a summary of the fbi files Instead they are lettersstatements and correspondence from the government about Sinatra A real let down

    This is set up like a reference book and not a biography Great book for research not so great as a pleasure read
