    This was a chore to get through and I almost gave up at least two times I personally would recommend skipping this one Also, some of the facts presented seem dubious at best.

    Dry readtook a long time to get through Interesting theory though.

    Very interesting work I m no conspiracy theorist, but the case this author presents seems pretty plausible.

    Looking back on my original review below , a little over a year later, I have to admit it s fairly terrible Don t get me wrong, I still think this book was crap even so now but I don t think I did a very good job explaining what made this book so unreadable Not too long ago, though, I stumbled upon an article that really breaks it down and I thought I d share.http www.washingtondecoded.com site Be warned, it is lengthy but well worth it

    Very convincing analysis of the Kennedy assassination that doesn t blame the Cubans so much as show that they and the Russians knew what Oswald might do, but he still carried it out himself The US whitewashed this info to avoid war.


  10. says:

    Along with Live by the Sword this is another Russo excellent analysis of the facts swarming around the conspiratorial Kennedy brothers This one also does an excellent overview and explanation of the rise of LBJ and the decline of RFK.
