About the Author

Chauncey Holt came forward claiming to be one of the “three tramps” photographed in Dealey Plaza shortly after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. At various times in his life, he claimed to be a CIA operative, an accountant for Meyer Lansky, and ostensibly provided false ID documents to Lee Harvey Oswald.

One does not have to agree with everything espoused in this excellent book to see the value inherent in its pages. Chauncey Holt was quite an enigma, to say the least. For the completest, this is quite a worthwhile book to own. Recommended (a great read!)

What lies in front of you is the life story of Chauncey Marvin Holt. This autobiography is in my opinion by far the most revealing, eye opening book ever on the JFK assassination and more covert operations of the "secret government" of America. This promise may sound pompous, but I am pretty sure the reader will agree with me, well before turning the last page.

I came across this book on complete accident; but i am not disappointed in the least. A very interesting story of a man, Chauncey Holt, who was a true renaissance man who worked for mob figures, the CIA and its precursor (read the book), I have read several books on the assassination and did my best to read a few reviews here. Come to your own conclusions; i have made my own. Even if he wasn't one of the so called tramps of dealey plaza; it shows you how deep the murder and cover up truely go. It is dificult to disseminate so much info on a tragic event like this in our countries history. I also recommend Dr Jerome Corsi's book "Who Really killed Kennedy" for its more broad coverage of the assassination. Whether this is true or not, i believe this book is very plausible, there is a lot of pictures and documentary evidence presented. Whether the mysterious three tramps have been identified or not; i feel i have a better understanding of many of the cover stories presented on this topic. One thing to point out...in the 50th anniversary of the "big event", how come there is no cover from mainstream media or disinfo coming out on this book? It must be hard to discount the truth.

I believe the story and information told presents a more clear picture of a large conspiracy to kill Kennedy and change the leadership of our country. Its definetly a worthwhile read.

Lots of new info from someone who claims to have been in the mix @ Dallas thay day. Great interesting stories of CIA workings in the 50's through the 70's. Also plenty of mob stories worth the effort. If we are looking for a "culpret" to step forward with info about what really happened in 1963, we'd expect it would be a guy like this. Book has a lot of misspelled words-really needed an editor, but if you can overlook that, it is a fun, informative read.
