Synopsis

This is the story of Judith Campbell Exner, a very promiscuous woman, who appears to have no sense of values or moralilty. She becomes sexually involved with a number of men, including John F. Kennedy, movie stars, and a number of gangsters. The “plot” is very shallow and uninteresting. She evenually is investigated by the FBI but, even then, she refuses to tell the truth about her relationship with President Kennedy or the gangsters she conspired with.

Dove Review

From the time Judith Exner became a news figure in 1975, countless stories have been told about her life and loves. And like anyone who had anything to do with John F. Kennedy, each version became intensified and distorted. Despite haven been under investigation by th eFBI for fifteen years, Judith Exner maintained her public silence about the world she inhabited in th elate fifties and early sixties. She broke that silence only when required to do so by law–when the U.S. Senate Church Committee summoned her to testify, and press reports leaked her conncetions to Kenndedy and notorious organized-crime figure Sam Giancana. Their really is no “saving grace” in this story. The main character, and almost all of the people in her life, live for nothing but their own selfish gratification, regardless of how their actions might affect others.
