The big daddy of the conspiracy books on the JFK assassination, and one that can't be taken lightly. A sheer tour de force that may be the final word until 2039 - when government files on the case can be unlocked. - Kirkus Reviews
this book covers everything. it talks about oswald, ruby, the cia, the mafia, the cover-up, garrisson, dallas, new orleans, the warren commission, the house assassinations committee, and even talks about both lyndon and hoover's role in the assassination. this book is a bit long, and at times, you do get bored, but this book consisits of facts, unlike Posner who uses fantasy to make it look like Oswald and only Oswald killed Kennedy.
my favorite part of this book is when Marrs compares the whole Kennedy assassination to Julis Cesar. like Brutus says, "it's not that i didn't like Cesar, but i like Rome more". the same applys for LBJ, except he hated Kennedy and knew if he didn't do something, that is his childhood dream of becoming President would die. if hoover didn't do something, he knew he would be retired as FBI director. if the CIA didn't do something, there power would dwindle, just like JFK had said. the Mafia needed to get revenge. like Jim Garrisson once said, everything about the Kennedy assassination points towards 2 things: the Bay of Pigs, and the CIA.
what's not as important is who fired from what window, it's about who killed Kennedy, who had the benefited, and who had the power to cover it up. figure this out, and you've got the truth to who killed Kennedy.
I read "Crossfire" once, 10 years ago and still recommend it to anyone interested in knowing more about assassination of our 36th President. A good starting point of amateur researchers
