The Secret Man : The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

In America's capital city, where little stays secret for long, the identity of Deep Throat - the mysterious source who helped Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein break open the Watergate scandal in 1972 - remained hidden for thirty-three years.

Now, Woodward tells the story of his long, complex relationship with Mark Felt, the enigmatic former No. 2 man in the FBI who helped end the presidency of Richard Nixon.

The Secret Man chronicles the story in intimate detail, from Woodward's first, chance encounter with Felt in the Nixon White House, to their covert, middle-of-the-night meetings in an underground parking garage, to the aftermath of Watergate and decades beyond, until Felt finally stepped forward at age 91 to unmask himself as Deep Throat.

It is an intense, 33-year journey and the gripping final chapter to one of the most exciting periods in journalistic and political history.

The Secret Man provides a summary of the Watergate story, with one important piece of the puzzle finally in place. The background on W. Mark Felt and his relationship with Bob Woodward make it a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the Nixon years. And, of course, Woodward brings his usual highly readable narrative non-fiction style to the proceedings. It's just a shame Felt left it so long to 'out' himself as Deep Throat, because some of his (and Woodward's) recollections are very vague indeed.
