Jimmy Hoffa, acquitted in a Nashville court during the Test Fleet
case, was under investigation for jury tampering and subsequently
tried and convicted in Chattanooga after a judge in Nashville
granted a change of venue. Nicely explores Hoffa's time in
Tennessee, the major players in the case, and the development of
Bobby Kennedy, then chief counsel of the Senate's McClellan
Committee, as Hoffa's main antagonist. All the while, Hoffa's
continued legal troubles created a high amount of tension between
the Teamsters, management, and members of organized crime. While
many books overlook this important tipping point in Hoffa's career,
tending to focus on his disappearance, Nicely mines court
transcripts and presents the Tennessee trials as both the height of
Hoffa's perceived invincibility and the beginning of his downfall.
