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!

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.

Format: Paperback
I'll start off by saying I am a huge conspiracy buff. Be it the sinking of the USS Maine to JFK, RFK, MLK, Roswell, John Lennon, Pearl Harbor, 9/11, etc...(and watching X-Files for 9 years) I love a good conspiracy. When I saw this book on the shelf, I nearly threw my arm out of my socket reaching for it.

However, this was a HUGE disappointment.

The material, in some cases, were interesting. However, it appears that the book was never formatted or proof-read. There are numerous typos and for some reason, the authors try to be creative and "cutesy." It didn't work.

Here are several reasons why I found this book frustrating to read--not due to the subject matter but rather due to the printing of it.

1) For some reason, parts of certain chapters are put in a gray box. Not sure why.

2) Quotes from people are separated in a paragraph by themselves, in a dark font. (Just quote the person: so and so was quoted as saying, "....and then...) But these quotes are off by themselves, in a separate paragraph. And many times, the name of the person who said it is not named--so you don't even know who is saying the quote.

3) Formatting/Proofreading: I'm no English major but there are numerous typos in this book. Even though I only read 210 of the 306 pages, I noticed several typos. Twice I noticed the last sentence on the bottom of a page was repeated again at the top of the following page. The next sentence is a direct quote from the book--page 166, the chapter about MLK: "Therefore,theshooterwasabovethevictim;notparallelintheroominghouseacrossthestreetwheretheofficualUSgovernmentversionofeverntsplacesJamesEarlRay.If.."
Yes--the entire sentence jumbled into one word!
