this is one of the most comprihensive and one of the best assassination books ever!!! you want the real truth to who killed Kennedy and why? read this. don't go fantasizing about how Oswald fired 1 shot which did 7 wounds and came out in prestitne condidition, ala Gerald Posner, read the facts! Marrs book was so good that along with Jim Garrisson's book, the movie JFK was born, which in turn created such a fire storm, that the American Government had to pass the Assassinations Freedom Act!!!!! what other book has ever done that? not gerald posners.
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.
