#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - With a new afterword by the author in honor of Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday

This is the book that Frank Sinatra tried--but failed--to keep from publication, and it's easy to understand why. This unauthorized biography goes behind the iconic myth of Sinatra to expose the well-hidden side of one of the most celebrated--and elusive--public figures of our time. Celebrated journalist Kitty Kelley spent three years researching government documents (Mafia-related material, wiretaps, and secret testimony) and interviewing more than 800 people in Sinatra's life (family, colleagues, law-enforcement officers, friends). The result is a stunning, often shocking expose of a man as tortured as he was talented, as driven to self-destruction as he was to success.

Featuring a new afterword by the author, this fully documented, highly detailed biography--filled with revealing anecdotes--is the penetrating story of the explosively controversial and undeniably multitalented legend who ruled the entertainment industry for fifty years and continues to fascinate to this day.
