Customer Reviews

The author apparently does not realize that they were trying to save Kennedy's life.
David R. Dillon
If it had been, as Dr. Olivier testified, the wrist "would have had a larger exit wound than an entrance wound" which it did not.
Martin Hay
The book is also absolutely riddled with spelling errors and the repetitive misuse of certain words and expressions.
Peter Wall

This book makes a major contribution to the Kennedy Assassination literature, and I am displeased by what the first reviewer said.

First, he criticizes Martin for suggesting that the bullet that struck Kennedy in the back came out his chest. The reviewer said there was "no evidence" for that. Well, if you dismiss the magic bullet theory and the idea that it was found unscathed on a stretcher in Parkland Hospital as nonsense, then you are left not knowing what happened to that bullet. It definitely struck Kennedy in the back, adjacent to the third thoracic vertebra. We have all seen the bullet hole. Something must have happened to the bullet. So what did happen? Did it fall out? But how? He was wearing several layers of clothing. Why wasn't it found? How could it disappear? There are theories that it might have been a "sabot" bullet designed to leave evidence, presumably to implicate Oswald. Very interesting. But still, the question remains: what happened to it? So, I think Orlando may be on to something in saying that the bullet did what bullets flying at over 2000 feet per second do: it went through Kennedy. Why wasn't it noticed at Parkland Hospital? I don't know, but why was the back entry wound not noticed at Parkland Hospital? There were 17 doctors looking at him.

I have communicated with Orlando Martin about this, and he thinks that it may have exited below Kennedy's armpit, and if they cut his shirt off and left the sleeves, maybe it was inconspicuous. Is it a speculation? Of course. But just remember: this is an area of the assassination that lacks definitive answers. So, I think this new theory of Orlando's is worth considering. Why dismiss it so fast when, to date, no one has provided proof of anything else?

A micro view of the assassination.
Forgive the poor expression and spelling and bow to the author's specialist knowledge which allows him to offer the last word on the mechanics of the shooting.

I can't vouch for everything Orlando says, but after reading his book, there is no doubt in my mind that President Kennedy was killed by multiple shooters from different directions, and therefore, there was a conspiracy. It's obvious that Mr. Martin is an expert when it comes to guns and bullets and ballistics. His explanation of why the bullet that struck Kennedy' head had to be a different kind of bullet than the one that hit his back, one that was designed to explode, really rang true to me. I'm glad I read this book, and I recommend it highly.

You may not agree with everything Orlando Martin proposes, but,
I guarantee you will re-think, and end up with a more informed, and
accurate picture of the ballistics on 11/22/63 by reading this book.

Isn't that what it's all about? Getting closer to the truth?
Orlando Martin will help you do that; and that's why his book is well worth the money.

Also, it's suprising, because this book looks at detail, but,
Martin is very successfull proving, beyond any doubt, the big picture items:

1) THERE WAS A CONSPIRACY
2) THERE WAS MORE THAN ONE SHOOTER, FROM MORE THAN ONE DIRECTION
3) THE MAGIC BULLET THEORY IS A PATHETIC LIE
4) LEE OSWALD WAS INNOCENT

Orlando Martin has made a valuable contribution, is a patriot,
I take my hat off to him.

Different bullets behave differently. So one bullet will explode upon impact (think headshot) while an other does not. The author provides a brief history of the man and times which is invaluable. Three assassins and five shots. This is all information we need. The only drawback is that the editing of this book was less than perfect.

To begin, I should point out that I strongly believe that there was a conspiracy in the death of John F Kennedy. I have read several dozen books on both sides of the debate and was drawn to this particular purchase by the title and what it seemed to promise. A miscalculation on my part.

There is already a severe excess of such irresponsible attempts at putting this issue to rest on BOTH sides of the JFK assassination debate. Authors such as Orlando Martin "piling on" with no more than a cursory, seemingly fourth/fifth-hand knowledge of the case, is self-serving at best and provides nothing of value to anyone who purchased this book under the impression that it would provide anything probative.

This particular book, as do too many others like it, plays right into the hands of Warren Commission apologists and Lone Nut Theorists (followers of the officially sanctioned version of events are also "theorists" in my view), who already believe that those advocating a conspiracy in the JFK assassination are all paranoid card carrying members of the "tin foil hat wearers' club" as it is.

-The book's title is unbelievably misleading. Rather than "expose truth" as it advertises, the book is nothing more than a regurgitation of snippets from previously published books by other authors, Mr. Martin's own unsupported speculation and (by the author's own admission) views based on Wikipedia entries. Anyone well versed in the many books and documentaries on the JFK assassination can almost pinpoint the source of each one of the areas of fact (or fiction) repeated or elaborated on by Mr. Martin.
