The Gumshoe and the Shrink is a tale of political intrigue - a detective story and medical mystery set against the backdrop of the closest and most storied presidential election in American history. It's the never-before-told account of how private detective Guenther Reinhart uncovered Richard Nixon's most closely guarded secret - that he was seeing a psychoanalyst - and how that discovery put victory out of Nixon's reach in the 1960 election. The Gumshoe and the Shrink provides a fascinating insight into the secret battle for presidency and Nixon's tortured psychology.
