Plot

J. Edgar Hoover shaped the course of the FBI for a half century — a position that necessitated he appear strong, intimidating, and morally impeachable. But while Hoover fought bank robbers, spied on civil rights leaders, and undermined left wing protest movements, he also held a number of dark secrets. This portrait of Hoover captures both sides of the man: the capable and occasionally righteous law enforcement officer and the privately insecure and eccentric Edgar at home. Both sides of his personality are reinforced by the same abiding principle: the need to shape everything around him to be under his control.
