Bugliosi is perhaps the most thorough researcher I've encountered over the years, and his Helter Skelter account of the Manson Family activities in the late 60's is the gold standard of true crime writing. Parkland enjoys that same level of detail, with something in the area of 1,600 specific reference cites in the reading, along with several hundred explanatory footnotes along the way.
For the history-curious reader, every activity through every moment involving the principal players in this tragedy is detailed, from the Presidential entourage in Dallas, to Lee and Marina Oswald, to Jack Ruby, to the myriad of FBI, Secret Service, Dallas Police and Sheriffs and dozens of witnesses.
The only valid criticism I can make (which drops my rating one notch to 4-Stars) is that licensing issues prevented display of the graphics images and charts/diagrams referenced in the book to be seen in the Kindle version I purchased. The reader is left to either their own imagination or memories aged 50 years! If you want to know what happened, in sometimes almost excruciating detail, involving JFK's death, this is your definitive read. It's brilliant, logical and stands the "reasonableness" test in support of the Warren Commission conclusions as to who did it, how he did it, and a plausible explanation as to motive.
