Review:

Juicy tidbits concerning the Mob, Marilyn, the Kennedys and other cool stuff Robbie Williams can but dream of. -- Q Magazine, June 2003

Book Description:

George Jacobs is generally considered 'the last of the Rat Pack', a member of the exclusive club that has fascinated us for decades. He worked as Sinatra's valet and confidant from 1953, when Ava Gardner had just left him, until the end of his marriage to Mia Farrow in 1968. Racy and revealing, MR S. is a record of one of the longest and most outrageous mid-life crises ever as George helped Sinatra juggle his multiple mistresses - women like Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Grace Kelly and Peggy Lee. And it wasn't just women: Hollywood stars and Mafia bosses, the Kennedys and European royalty all have a part to play in Frank's glory years. But above all there was the Rat Pack who accepted George as one of their own. Dean Martin tried his comedy routines out on him and Peter Lawford did his drugs in front of him. MR S gives an insider's view of the highs and lows of life with the Rat Pack - the spectacle, the sex, the unrecounted brawls, violence, tensions and hatreds among the revellers at the wildest moveable feast of the century
