Roy Cohn was a brutal genius - an attorney with a future - and he knew it. First taking the Rosenbergs to trial as spies, ensuring he got them the death penalty; then destroying lives as Senator Joe McCarthy's right-hand man in the communist witch hunts of the 1950s; and on to America under the Kennedys where he fought their support of civil rights, befriending the F.B.I.'s J. Edgar Hoover and attempting to undermine the leadership of Martin Luther King.
