Crossing Hoffa explores the seamy under belly of the infamous Teamsters Union during the reign of the long-since disappeared and widely disliked Jimmy Hoffa. Yeah, that Jimmy Hoffa, the one who may be buried on the fifty-yard line or have been consumed by hungry puppies years ago.

The most fascinating aspect of this book is that it is told from the perspective of Steven Harper as told to by his father, James Harper, who had the stones to fight to rid his Local 544 of the scurrilous activities of the later disappeared Hoffa.

After his father died, Harper opened a metal Pandora’s box of the Teamster’s notorious President Hoffa. With the papers he found, he went sleuthing into the dim corners of the one-man mission his father tackled that stoked the anger of Hoffa and put him and his entire family in danger.

Although books and movies abound with the mythology of where Hoffa ended up and the legend of Attorney General Bobby Kennedy’s crusade to rid the Teamsters of its head henchmen, Crossing Hoffa is a new perspective that demands to be explored.

No one who likes history, detective stories and/or regular people behaving heroically will be able to stop listening to this CD set until the end regardless of potty breaks, burning dinner, or anything else, because it is the only perspective that has never been revealed before.
