Summary: It is March 1972, and the Nixon White House wants Jack Anderson dead.The syndicated columnist Jack Anderson, the most famous and feared investigative reporter in the nation, has exposed yet another of the President's dirty secrets. Nixon's operatives are ordered to ''stop Anderson at all costs''-permanently. Across the street from the White House, they huddle in a hotel basement to conspire.

The struggle between Nixon and Anderson included bribery, blackmail, forgery, spying, and burglary as well as the White House murder plot. Their vendetta symbolized and accelerated the growing conflict between the government and the press, a clash that would long outlive both men.Mark Feldstein traces the arc of this confrontation between a vindictive president and a flamboyant, crusading muckraker who rifled through garbage and swiped classified papers in pursuit of his prey-stoking the paranoia in Nixon that would ultimately lead to his ruin.
