Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Day John Died delivers another dramatic installment in the lives of the Kennedys - including new details about JFK, Jr., his relationship with his mother, his many girlfriends, and the night of his tragic death.
Critically acclaimed author Christopher Andersen is a master of celebrity biographies - boasting 16 best sellers, among them These Few Precious Days, Mick, and William and Kate. Now in his latest thrilling book, untold details of the life and death of JFK, Jr., come to light, released in time for the 15-year marker of the tragic plane crash on July 16, 1999.
At the heart of The Good Son is the most important relationship in JFK, Jr.'s life: that with his mother, the beautiful and mysterious Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Andersen explores his reactions to his mother's post-Dallas suicidal depression and growing dependence on prescription drugs (as well as men); how Jackie felt about the women in her son's life, from Madonna and Sarah Jessica Parker, to Daryl Hannah and Carolyn Bessette, to his turbulent marriage; the senseless plane crash that took his life; the aftermath of shock, loss, grief, and confusion; and much more. Offering new insights into the intense, tender, and often stormy relationship between this iconic mother and son, The Good Son is a riveting, bittersweet biography for lovers of all things Kennedy.

Good Son, Bad Book

What would have made The Good Son better?

The author posited complete knowledge of intimate conversations all through the book. He needs his view to be more believable. He outed the most salacious things about everyone without substantial backing, How he knew about actions, complete conversations, thoughts etc. was/is totally questionable.

Has The Good Son turned you off from other books in this genre?

Unless I know the author, yes.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Robertson Dean?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Just hearing the timeline of the Kennedys was touching and desperately sad.

Any additional comments?

Be careful of slime merchants like this author.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is a good tabloid story for Kennedy fans and Robertson Dean is wonderful

What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

His delivery was spot on. Great pacing, great consistency in Jackie's voice and he didn't overdo it by trying to hard on the females. Great sound quality, good editing.
