Oppenheimer's books can be a little gossipy but I don't think this one strays too far from the truth.

The book was not just about RFK Jr but about Ethel and Bobby's family and why their kids turned out the way they did. After her husband Robert was killed by an assassin's bullet, Ethel's kids had troubles early on and then as adults from drugs and other addictions and eventually broken marriages. I am surprised that a family so close to the church would have so many difficulties.

Rather than waste time reading this garbage, why not look further into the murder of RFK, Jr.'s father, Sen. Bobby Kennedy, immediately after he won the California primary, a strong indicator that he would have won the 1968 democratic nomination for the presidency?
At his murder, in the immediate vicinity, were two individuals who also appeared in the vicinity of Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63, the time of his brother's murder (President John F. Kennedy): Harold Jameson and the CIA's George Joannides. Rather an incredible coincidence that Jameson, connected to the oil companies and organized crime, so influential he could threaten to sue major publishing houses to halt the publication of certain books, and a CIA employee, George Joannides, involved with psychological warfare and disinformation, would show up at both murders????? A FOIA request on Harold Jameson [FBI case number 499 731] might prove interesting!
