Drawing from a wealth of conversations with family members, friends, neighbors, household and security staff, Storey delivers a rich and textured account of the Kennedys’ lives in their summer refuge.

She’s running out of time to pull the trigger on what could be the greatest success of her career…or the most awkward family holiday of her life.
