From the Publisher
Annotation In their comprehensive and deeply researched biography of Frank Sinatra, one of the most significant musical stars of the 20th century, authors Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan leave no stone unturned in their quest for the truth. Their mission in SINATRA: THE LIFE is not so much to examine their subject's consummate musical artistry as to scrutinize the more controversial aspects of his career, such as his involvement with the Mafia, his notorious womanizing, and the sometimes shabby way he treated close associates and friends. Illuminating interviews with contemporaries like Jerry Lewis, who testifies to Sinatra's Mob ties, and Ava Gardner, conducted shortly before the actress's death in 1990, reveal the singer's many flaws, including a propensity for boozing and violence. The authors quote liberally from contemporaneous FBI files to bolster their case for Sinatra as an accomplice for organized crime, and while many of their claims remain controversial and are often based on unsubstantiated rumor, their research (which even takes them to the Sinatra family's original home in Lercara Friddi, Sicily) is often impressive.
