Author Max Holland delves into the enigma that is Mark Felt (1913-2008), the FBI official who as the mysterious Deep Throat shared with reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein insider information on the Watergate scandal and by doing so helped to bring down President Richard Nixon.

Watch the YouTube event trailer.

Holland sees in Felt not a selfless official acting out of outrage or altruistic patriotism, but rather a career FBI agent with his own private agenda. He not only challenges Felt’s explanations but demolishes the legend fostered by Woodward and Bernstein’s bestselling All the President’s Men.
