The book will have its own enemies that will try to make sure it is not read.
joy blakeslee
The authors do an excellent job of displaying facts to convince me that each of the "official" stories they analyze are not only wrong, but deliberately wrong.
Dean T. Hartwell
Way too many footnotes, you could spend more time on those than on the book itself.

This book looks at the mysterious deaths of 10 subjects by laying out how the official rulings contradict the ballistics, eye-witness accounts, laws of physics, and reason.

Marilyn Monroe had so many drugs in her system that there was enough to kill 15 people even though she had no access to that amount of pills. She also had no traces of pills in her stomach, leading to the conclusion that she was killed with an enema, possibly by the Mob in order to create scandal for the Kennedys. Read the chain of events of the day and evening leading up to her death and the aftermath of the circus that ensued to cover up the murder.

See the lunacy of the claim that Oswald shot JFK in the front of the head while perched in the book depository building, which was behind the motorcade. Learn how Sirhan Sirhan shot RFK with a gun held three inches from the back of the senator's head, all while standing 10 feet in front of him. Martin Luther King's sniper stood much higher and to King's right, not directly across the way where authorities claim James Earl Ray made the shot. Even King's family didn't believe Ray to be guilty and in 1999 a jury concluded that King was murdered in a conspiracy "including government agencies."

Vince Foster, lawyer to the Clintons, was found dead in a park of a suicide in which no gun was found at the scene, and then a black gun turned up in his hand, and then a silver one. His body and the ground under him showing little blood and tissue matter-- and impossible feat for such a graphic and horrific way to die.

Read how eyewitnesses were forced and intimidated into changing their stories in order to match official findings.

This book by Richard Belzer and David Wayne is an excellent addition to the library of JFK assassination books. In this book, I concentrate primarily on whether or not the purchaser should get the Kindle or the hardback edition. I also focus exclusively on the chapter on JFK, given my familiarity with the topic after having written Impossible: The Case Against Lee Harvey Oswald.

See the comment below this review to find out how to download over 5 gigabytes of research material related to the assassination, including an excerpt from the Harvey and Lee book mentioned in the review.

Well researched, well worth acquiring.

If you have ever suspected that the official government versions of things are a little bit fishy, then this is the book for you. I myself have long thought that what they told us happened to President Kennedy was not quite right. This book confirms my suspicions and then takes it a step further, examining the true evidence of each case and following that evidence wherever it leads. Excellent research and well-supported facts with every little thing substantiated. There are over five hundred footnotes, just to give you an idea of how well-researched this book really is. Get it!

32 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Herbert L Calhoun on August 24, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Although spotty with very uneven treatment of the ten events it covers, and relying wholly on secondary and tertiary sources, this is still a serious attempt to get at the truth about ten of the most infamous murders and cover-ups allegedly perpetrated by the USG in recent history. The short introduction provides minimal but still valuable context.

Arguably, the best effort is spent on the Marilyn Monroe case, where the authors put their best sleuthing feet forward, as they scrounge exhaustively through available sources in the grand style of a Sherlock Holmes: collating their own logical extrapolations with inconsistencies in medical evidence and splicing direct testimonies as if cross-examining defense lawyers. In a very impressive way they come to the convincing conclusion that the most likely cause of Marilyn's death was by the mob in a vain effort to, at the very least, bring irrecoverable shame upon the Kennedy brothers -- if not bring them down altogether via a colossally embarrassing scandal. But lucky for the Kennedys, J. Edgar came to the rescue and the whole unseemly affair, except for a few loose ends, was carefully covered-up and made to go away.

Regarding the JFK assassination, given that there is so much available documentation on it that needed a similar rigorous and proper collating and analysis, I found the section on the JFK murder a bit disappointing, relying as it did on the juxtaposition of the Shelton Report, excerpts from the speculations of many others and strategically placed after-the-fact comments by key players. While the Sheldon Report deserves a fair hearing in the court of public opinion in its own right, it is far from the last word on the assassination.

26 of 30 people found the following review helpful By K. Acklin on August 26, 2012
Format: Hardcover
As an undergraduate, one of my history professors who fought in the Abraham Lincoln Brigades during the Spanish Civil War gave us a research project as a midterm. The class of 8 stalwart students were given a list of 30 individuals who had been assassinated during the period between the world wars. Our assignment was to research, using primary sources such as newspapers when possible, the motive(s) for each assassination and who or what organizations were behind the assassination. Note that I said 'behind the assassination.' Much to my surprise, frequently, the individual blamed for the assassination had nothing to do with it or was a patsy. This professor taught me to look below the surface when viewing any event--a very valuable lesson indeed. As a researcher myself, I can appreciate the effort that went into this book. Any thinking person can see the truth that these authors so painstakingly reveal. I hope these gentleman will take on other projects. We need more researchers and books like this.
