Format: Paperback
NEXUS is the story of how President John F. Kennedy was removed by elements within his own government. A group of bitter misguided patriots, who were soldiers in the covert war against Fidel Castro, were behind the plot. Compartmentalization in a well planned intelligence operation is an excuse to eliminate blame for whatever is later proven to be true.

This is an important, historical work. Larry Hancock is one of the best researcher/authors on this subject of Cold War intrigue we have ever seen. NEXUS is a fine companion piece to Someone Would Have Talked and *the* book for people looking for a starting point in learning about the JFK Assassination.

NEXUS provides background on the CIA, how Black Ops work, and the Intel games that were being played in 1963. While SWHT deals with the conspiracy on the ground, NEXUS looks at the top echelon of the CIA including DDP Richard Helms and C/CI James Angleton.

There is information, material, and names in this book which one will not find elsewhere in print related to these matters. I echo Mr. Sanders' sentiments that NEXUS is a "Must Read."

Format: Paperback
My Father was the Dallas Kodak Manager who supervised the development of the Zapruder film, and I've had a serious interest in the real facts about the JFK murder since that day. I also fully agree with the review comments from John Sanders. In fact, I had the opportunity to meet the Author Larry Hancock two years ago, and I recall that he had originally conceived of his book "Someone Would Have Talked" as a research book intended for researchers.

In this new book, NEXUS, Larry presents significant new research on early CIA activities - - - which provides important background material for his earlier book "Someone Would Have Talked". This is a complex topic, presented facdtually. Larry has pulled together facts and details from thousands of sources to explain the motivation and the skills that CIA related operatives acquired - - - and used in the JFK Assassination.

When reading NEXUS or Someone Would Have Talked, I highly recommend that you visit Larry's web site at [...] go the the SWHT page, and print out copies of the CIA organizational "CHARTS", which are very usefull for reference as you read both books.

Well done Larry, thanks loads.

As a student of the JFK assassination since the early `70s, and a researcher and writer on the subject, I thought that I'd read everything of importance about that dark time in our history. After reading NEXUS, now I feel that I have, finally.

This is an incredibly well researched and analyzed work that answers so many of the questions surrounding how this national tragedy could have happened, why the conspirators felt the need to make the decision to end the Kennedy administration, and the machinations required to keep this horrific story from the American people.

If ever there was a "must read" for not only researchers, but Americans who want to understand this pivotal moment in history, this is it. Larry Hancock is a terrific writer and researcher, and his ability to untangle the web of the conspiracy is remarkable. I've tried to do it, but Hancock does it clearly and concisely.

I can't recommend this book enough!

..but firt things first: I almost took one star off, because of the numerous spelling and printing errors that you have to confront while reading the book.

"Alan Dulles" almost did it for me...

This is a shame, because Larry Hancock is one of the finest writers on the subject today: his book "Someone would have talked" is now a classic.

This new book continues Hancock's deconstruction of the official myth. In his first book, Hancock totally destroyed the classic argument of the Lone Nut apologists: "Well, you just could not keep such a conspiracy secret: somebody would have talked". Hancock demonstrated that, indeed, several people involved in the conspiracy did talk, and more importantly, that they all could be traced back to a very tight group of people, gravitating around the CIA activities against Castro, notably those of senior CIA officer D A Phillips.

In "Nexus", Hancock continues his exploration of core, basic questions pertaining to the assassination: after proving that "some people indeed talked", he nows tackles a more technical aspect: how could such an operation be planned, organized and realized succesfully, whithin the context of the Agency operating procedures and organisation?

Of course, most serious students of the assassination will already know the conclusions he has arrived at, but it is still, in my opinion, a very useful, concise book that sum up neatly what we know, as of today, about this important aspect of the case.

Highly recommanded.

Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of Larry Hancock's seminal work "Someone Would Have Talked"---brilliant piece of investigative journalism; easily, one of the finest books on the JFK assassination. Well, Larry has written what I consider to be a very worthwhile addendum to that book with "Nexus: The CIA & Political Assassination." In fact, because of its modest size (a tad over 200 pages), perhaps this book would be the place to start for those unfamiliar with the aforementioned volume. Larry puts all the pieces together in a highly documented and persuasive fashion, demonstrating just how the CIA worked years before the JFK assassination, as well as shortly before, during, and after. By focusing on the agency in this way, Larry paints a compelling case for CIA complicity in the assassination. Indeed, the CIA, Cuba, and Conspiracy are the three "C"'s Larry depicts in sharp relief with to-the-point narrative and excellent research. Get this one now...and "Someone Would Have Talked", as well. Your library is not complete without them. Kudos, Larry, for another outstanding book!
