Item description for Seis de los grandes by James Ellroy, Montserrat Gurgui & Hernan Sabate...
Overview Wayne Tedrow, Jr., a young Vegas policeman with $6,000 in cash, is drawn unwittingly into a conspiracy involving the cover-up of the truth about the assassination of John Kennedy.
On November 22, 1963, three men converge in Dallas with a singular task: to clean up the JFK assassination's loose ends and inconvenient witnesses. These night riders are a Las Vegas cop with family ties to the lunatic right, a defrocked FBI man turned underworld mouthpiece, and a dope runner and hit man who serves as the mob's emissary to the anti-Castro underground. For the next five years they run a whirlwind of plots and counter-plots: Howard Hughes's takeover of Vegas, J. Edgar Hoover's war against the civil rights movement, the heroin trade in Vietnam, and the murders of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy.
