Dan E molder is an investigative journalist who has conducted extensive research on James (Jimmy) Riddle Hoffa. Molder’s biography of Hoffa is an in-depth look at the life of this interesting and controversial figure of the 20th century. Molder follows Hoffa from a young union organizer to the all powerful leader of the Teamsters Union. Hoffa’s disappearance in 1975 is one of the great mysteries.
The author shows how Hoffa put the Union into the clutches of the Mod. The author discusses the Nixon bribes, mafia connection, shakedowns during organizing and Hoffa use of the Union Pension fund to provide capital for the mob to build casinos in Los Vegas.
It was in this book “The Hoffa Wars” published in 1978 that Molder put forth the theory that Hoffa along with mobsters Carlo Marcello and Santos Trafficants arranged the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This theory has become very popular over time. The book is fairly long at a bit over 21 hours. Eric Martin narrated the book.

Freeform, labyrinthine, lacking in focus, driven aimlessly by a rambling narrative that cries out for a firm editorial hand. Little or no attempt to introduce, classify or place in context the hundreds of characters listed throughout this story.
The introduction makes much of the fact that the book was out of print or unobtainable for many years.
Having tried on three occasions to listen to this book, I now understand why.
