"Recently seen FBI documents prove what Christine has always maintained about the intimate involvement of the Kennedy White House in her case and how J. Edgar Hoover took personal charge. But above all, this is the life's journey of a woman whom history has refused to let go, who can never escape being Christine Keeler. She is a headline for ever. It is a page-turning story of her enormous personal sacrifice, her unstinting resolve and her triumphant survival."--BOOK JACKET.

About the author (2001)

Christine Keeler was born in Uxbridge, England on February 22, 1942. She left home at the age of 16 and danced in a topless club in London. She started an affair with John Profumo, a secretary of state for war in the Conservative government of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, in 1961. After the affair was made public, Profumo resigned in June 1963 and Macmillan resigned later in 1963. The Profumo affair was a political scandal that played a role in the downfall of the Conservative government. Keeler served six months in prison for perjury and obstruction of justice stemming from false statements she had made about another lover, Aloysius Gordon. Her memoir, Secrets and Lies written with Douglas Thompson, was published in 2012. She died on December 4, 2017 at the age of 75.
