L. Patrick Gray III wasMoreChallenges some assumptions and offers new theories about Watergate.—The New York TimesIn Nixons Web is the last untold story of Watergate, written by the FBI director who maintained his silence for more than thirty years. L. Patrick Gray III was the target of one of Watergates most shocking acts—Richard Nixons smoking gun attempt to have the CIA stop the FBI investigation of the break-in. And when the Senate focused its attention on Gray months later, the White House threw him to the wolves- John Ehrlichman famously advised that he be left to twist slowly, slowly in the wind.This book is Grays firsthand account of his crucial year at the FBI, based on a never-before-published first-person account and previously secret documents. He reveals the intrigue and perfidy that permeated Washington and he raises disturbing questions about the methods and motives of his top deputy, Mark Felt, the man purported to be Deep Throat.Completed and expanded by Grays son, the journalist Ed Gray, In Nixons Web will change the way we think about the crisis that destroyed Nixons presidency.
