An engrossing debut novel that cannily reimagines the extraordinary life and mysterious death of real-life bohemian Georgetown socialite Mary Pinchot Meyer—secret lover of JFK, ex-wife of a CIA chief, sexual adventurer, LSD explorer, and early feminist living by her own rules. Is that why she ended up dead?

“In real life, Mary Pinchot Meyer had a love affair with JFK, may have done LSD with him and was mysteriously murdered in 1964. Wolfe’s riveting novel imagines what Meyer’s diary—burned by the CIA after her death—might have revealed. Great fun for conspiracy theorists and romantics alike.” — People
