I love the Crazy series and seriously hope that Shannon Hill writes many more. The interaction between Lil and Boris is just wonderful and her sense of humor is refreshing. Her cases vary and are not the same old same old that you find in a lot of cozy writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sherry Fiester: Ally of the Truth, May 22, 2013
Thomas Noguchi showed us Robert F. Kennedy was killed, not by a patsy in front, but by a hidden killer behind. Sherry Fiester now shows us John F. Kennedy was not killed by a patsy behind, but by a hidden shooter in front.

In each case the professional investigator proceeds from established protocol. Science, not speculation, leads to the correct analysis, dispelling the myth, which is always the enemy of the truth.

Fiester's thesis is a double-helix of interlocking observations: First, that a shot from the front entered at the right temple and blew out the right occipital, taking with it much of the right hemisphere.

To the lay person the overlay of observation is stunning: radial and concentric fracturing at the site of entry, appearance and disappearance of backspatter within milliseconds, a trail of metal fragments on the lateral x-ray from the entry, the two-inch forward movement in the initial milliseconds followed by the dramatic back and to the left movement in billiard-shot response.

Second, that the Single Bullet Theory, that hallucination of Specter conjured to account for seven wounds in two men, after Tague's cheek subtracted from the three shots allowed, is not merely dead; it is most sincerely dead.

Readers will find the most thorough destruction-in-detail of this essential element of the Big Lie behind the most significant murder of the Twentieth Century.

And, at root and at last, that is what the eclipse of the Republic is all about, a murder misrepresented.

Followers of the methods of Sherlock Holmes of old books and cinema and new television will appreciate the removal of the impossible, the observation of the actual, and the summary analysis in determining the trajectory vector:

The president at the moment of impact, say Z-312/313, is looking left X degrees, down Y degrees; this orientation is aligned on an axis to the Z camera in the limo on Elm and a 35-degree range allowing the right-hemisphere shot centers on the juncture of the Underpass and the South Knoll.

Voila, a solution one hundred eighty degrees from the Warren (Dulles) Commission repeated ad nauseum by the Clark Panel, the HSCA, Humes at the ARRB, various cherry pickers in print and CGIstan.

The Single Bullet Theory fails on multiple grounds expounded in the 67-page climactic chapter. The author has faulted Dallas Police for failure to observe forensic protocols, protect the crime scene, develop the evidence, document the chain of evidence through drawings, photographs and written reports; this is supremely crucial in the Theory of Theories in the Crime of the Century.

Readers may be familiar with the doubt on the authenticity of CE 399 per the previous work of Robert Harris, Jim DiEugenio and others, the finding of Humes that the end of the back wound could be felt by his finger, that the president's physician Burkley located it at the third thoracic, that all subsequent moving was to conform to the a priori lone gunman, three bullets, two men, seven wounds via the Magic Bullet.

Ford moved the wound by "altering" the draft of the Commission report from "entered his back at a point slightly above the shoulder to the right of the spine" to "entered the back of his neck at a point slightly to the right of his spine"--and Gerry Ford was the fourth autopsist who picked up the pieces of Helms' demolition of Nixon by having Rockefeller "investigate" CIA and naming GHW Bush DCI to sanitize the witness list for the HSCA.

Perry's clearly accurate description of the throat wound as one of entry brought the badgering of Secret Service agent Elmer Moore all Friday night and the piling on of Specter and Dulles at Commission hearings. Perry confided to McClelland he was afraid "they would kill me."

Livingstone told Humes of the entry wound to the throat before the autopsy, but the FBI stopped the call and Humes rolled over per his superiors' instruction. McClelland, Perry, Carrico, Baxter and Jones saw an entry of .25 inch or less; a trach tube of .51 inches was inserted in an incision of that general size--yet Boswell indicates the incision was 6.5cm/2.56in--in the 295-page analysis of Anthony DeFiore following the research of Doug Weldon is a likely source for the initial wound which was so dangerous in its implications it caused a firestorm of reaction in Moore-Specter-Dulles.

The Warren Commission/FBI trajectory for the SBT is an a priori construct parroted by the HSCA and supposedly "replicated" by a cable program--which showed a bullet exiting the chest (perhaps a "Fordism" for "throat"--what difference does it make? As Weisberg would say, we're only talking about the president.

Finally, chain of evidence is 0-4: Tomlinson, Wright, Johnsen, Rowley "could not identify" CE 399 the bullet shown them by FBI Special Agent Elmar Lee Todd.

A bullet from Fantasyland passed through two specters in seven places never on a line from the mythical nest yet was in no way similarly deformed as all test bullets fired into cadavers and ballistic gelatin by Commission personnel.

The reader will appreciate the detail in a 381-page book in the language of the professional crime scene investigator. This reviewer posits the precursors to the dual major thesis (single frontal head wound/explosion of SBT myth) as laying the groundwork for aspects of the central core:

Dallas PD Followed Protocol: In a twisted way: Fritz pocketed casings, would later step out of the way so Ruby could shoot Oswald. FBI experts found Studebaker's prints all over the scene--the DP officer put in charge of the scene didn't put on gloves; also, used powder, not chemical to lift prints, consistent with the unsupervised, untrained newbie left to "develop latent fingerprints, photograph, and collect evidence in the homicide investigation of the President of the United States."

Ear Witnesses: Acoustics of the Plaza served to confuse directionality of sound. Witnesses named the Depository or the North "Grassy Knoll" but not the South--if we disregard Robert "Tosh" Plumlee and the wizardry of Mitch WerBell, CIA/Military master arms developer responsible for early innovations in silencer technology. Hence, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. (as presumed in the mysterious surfacing of Witt the ersatz "Umbrella Man" and Jett the "sandwich man" both "demonstrating there's no there there")

Blood in Zapruder is Faked: Backspatter appears and disappears in milliseconds--and is in Zapruder in precisely the manner expected with a frontal shot circa Z-312/313. Why was it "left in by forgers"? Because backspatter was not identified and analyzed before 1982, by which time all of the speculative shenanigans at Hawkeyeworks/NPIC in re Costella, Healy, Horne, et al was in the can.

The Limo Stop: The author stipulates the limo did not stop, technically. Accounts in the record by a handful of researchers describe a version of Zapruder seen by them depicting a full limo stop. Witnesses report in their scores of a slowing of a dramatic nature. The author describes an identified psychological condition reported by professional first-responders in crisis of an uncanny slowing of the rollout of events--literally slow-motion.

A paper by George Michael Evica "The Surrounding Silence: The Terrible First Sound in Dealey Plaza" (1993) suggests the initial report was designed to freeze the action. The epileptic "seizure" and ambulance, the "sound of fireworks", the smoke and gunpowder smell at the Grassy Knoll, the magician was at work distracting. Brake lights and Greer's looking back until the headshot may indicate a slowing rather than a stop per se. The reader will not see even that in the extant Zapruder.

Ballistics Prove One Shooter: Here's one of three eye-catchers:

The Firearm Analysis and Tool Mark Panel of the HSCA fired ammunition through the Mannlicher Carcano in anticipation of using the bullets as a standard for comparison identifications. Bullets the firearms panel fired from the rifle did not match either the FBI test cartridges of those found on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository; nor did they match the bullet found on the stretcher at Parkland Hospital. The striking discovery was the test bullets fired by the HSCA panel through the Mannlicher Carcano rifle did not even match each other.

In 1977 Guinn told the HSCA antimony in Mannlicher Carcano ammunition was consistent, a conclusion used to pronounce the official version of events. Yet in two years Guinn found wide variance in antimony in individual Carcano bullets. Guinn fits somewhere between the White Knight and the Red Queen.

His expertise allowed him to testify Gallagher was inexperienced, and Mannlicher Carcano ammunition's "concentration range from bullet-to-bullet is tremendous"--Guinn and Gallagher two of the seven blind men used to determine the characteristics of the elephant.

In 2004 the Committee on Scientific Assessment of Bullet Lead Elemental Composition and Comparison in the report of Clifford Spiegelman found fragments could have come from three or more separate bullets. Stewart Wexler's work called Guinn's conclusions into question on a range of issues. In short, the ballistic "evidence" was an ad hoc solution to an a priori conclusion, not the result of an investigation in the sense of the professional.

The Grassy Knoll Headshot: The Warren conclusion was a priori; its trajectory "analysis" was result-oriented, as was the cable program referenced (dispatched on by Jim DiEugenio).

ARRB counsel Gunn deposing x-ray tech Custer:

Gunn: So, it's your opinion that the trauma to the head began at the front and moved towards the back of the head?

Custer: Yes, sir. Absolutely (Custer, 1997)

Herein is the radial and concentric fracturing from the frontal entry.

It is well worth repeating the author's comment (pp196-7):

Kennedy's X-Rays depict radial fractures that appear to originate in the frontal bone. Concentric fractures are located predominately near the front of the head. Kennedy's autopsy X-Rays have distinct radial fractures propagating from the front of the head, with the preponderance of concentric fractures located at the front. This results in smaller fragments nearer the point of entry, enlarging in size as they move toward the exit wound. Current research indicates Kennedy's fracturing pattern corresponds with an entry wound located in the frontal bone, which correlates to a projectile striking the front of the head.

And on page 218, an appalling failing of both government "investigations":

There are standardized procedures for trajectory reconstruction that provide an accurate method to define where shooters are located. However, neither the Warren Commission, nor the House Select Committee on Assassinations used those uniform processes for trajectory analysis.

Two Headshots: A quick one-two:

The Itek Corporation report concluded Kennedy's head moved forward approximately 2.3 inches and his shoulder about 1.1 inches at Frames 312 and 313. Following that forward movement, Itek reported President Kennedy's head move rearward from Zapruder 314 to 321 (Itek, 1976) (page 232).

Movement into the force: Once the bullet enters the skull, if the design of the projectile limits penetration by distortion or fragmentation, the bullet immediately loses velocity. The loss of velocity results in the transfer of kinetic energy demonstrated by the instantaneous generation of temporary cavitation. The higher a projectile's velocity upon impact, the more kinetic energy is available to transfer to the target. The amount of kinetic energy transferred to a target increases with faster projectile deceleration. This initial transfer of energy causes the target to swell or move minutely into the force and against the line of fire. The greater the transferred energy, the more pronounced the forward movement (Karger, 2008; Coupland, 2011;l Radford, 2009). (page 245)

In sum, author Sherry Fiester is uniquely qualified to critique the crime scene investigation of the official bodies over the course of the past fifty years. Her approach is that of the professional, the use of established science-based protocols to determine events and causalities, not search for same to support a priori conclusions.

Her model is the exposure of eight identified myths in the spirit of the opening comment by the thirty-fifth president, that such are the "enemy of truth"--and truth, after all, is the only antidote for the existential shadow hanging over the Republic for the past half century.

Picture if you will the unspeakable evil of a government which would produce an intelligence operative replete with demonizable legend, position him as patsy to conceal the Jackal-like elimination of the inconvenient temporary occupant of the White House and parade an endless procession of Stephen King clowns in official drag to insist the impossible is the case: that one man with a defective weapon accomplished fantastic ballistic feats and the lack of any conspiracy dictates records will remain sealed in service to a national security defined in a world created by Lewis Carroll.

Contrast wound analysis, bloodspatter analysis, trajectory analysis yielding the inconvenient conclusion: murder by person or persons unknown abetted by accessories in high places at every stage of the crime.

Sherry Fiester: ally of the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars HE'S DEAD, JIM, March 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)

We think of Jim Garrison as Gulliver lashed down by antlike Lilliputians, paralyzed in his task and travels, unable to proceed.

Victor Marchetti former special assistant to Director of Central Intelligence Richard Helms told us his boss the DCI would inquire at Langley morning briefings after, "our people down there," were they getting the help they needed.

Why would Johnny Carson, be used as an IED in the road against the so-called grandstanding District Attorney from New Orleans? Why did NBC lawyers question Garrison for hours, typing his responses and their rejoinders onto cards Carson used in his blitz attack?

And most curious of all, why would a wealthy businessman with cosmopolitan refinement such as Clay Shaw call attorney Dean Andrews requesting he defend former defector and Castro supporter Lee Harvey Oswald?

Shaw associated with the fascist network which attempted the assassination of DeGaulle. Shaw who had no reaction, no remorse, shock, surprise, sadness, nothing on the news of the president's murder.

Who associated with Guy Banister whose convenient death in 1964 closed the door on his work with the McCord-Phillips operation run against FPCC about which Ruby knew so much.

When Ferrie and Eladio Del Valle were persons of interest to be questioned by Garrison's team, they died within hours of one another. Their links to Sergio Arcacha Smith (one of the men identified by Rose Cheramie) were too dangerous to leave open to exposure.

Of course he was CIA and of course he was integral to the conspiracy.

As our friend Kierkegaard advised, these things must be lived, but can only be seen in the rear-view.

So it is with Jim DiEugenio's double-decade hands-on inquiry reloaded: what was only dimly glimpsed now snaps into focus.

Journalism's ranks and rows were disked and salted with the negative image of the Garrison inquiry into the peculiar associations of Clay Shaw aka Clay Bertrand.

The defense team was CIA-approved. The major commentators were mere mockingbirds. The prosecution staff was penetrated by ten moles.

Moreover, the well was poisoned for Garrison's own response; e.g., a UPI dispatch editor reports he was told to deep-six anything from Garrison.

CIA in New Orleans installed a teletype to update Helms in real time, while FBI hounded Garrison's witnesses--whom, thanks to spies like Gordon Novel, the defense often reached before the prosecution.

Subpoenas were ignored, extraditions denied, the judge's rulings Kafkaesque.

Carson the wiry wooden son of Giuseppe taunts Garrison with cries of "fairy tale".

Four hundred pages of fine detail, much of it from the author's personal interviews, illuminated by two decades of document release since the initial work, capped by one hundred fifty pages of end notes has produced an indictment on the door of Justice.

After Kennedy's murder the war he declined was entered with the bravado of Apocalypse Now. By the last chopper leaving the Saigon Embassy Nixon had resigned, Ford (Hoover's Commission informant) had called in Rockefeller to investigate CIA and would name G.H.W. Bush to direct it.

Congress would revisit the unsolved mystery of the Twentieth Century per George H.W. Bush, Ross Perot, Al Gore, and Bill Clinton. As it had done in the Warren Commission with Dulles--the Dulles of George Michael Evica's A Certain Arrogance with decades of machinations for hidden clients in his curriculum vitae--and to Garrison in the Shaw trial, the Agency would remove the dangerous Sprague and replace him with the obsequious Blakey.

The president who pursued peace was murdered, and the prosecutor who pursued his killers was ambushed. Now comes the DiEugenio book to reset the table, the centerpiece--America's destiny--remains the same existential dilemma:

"I'm trying to tell the people of America that the honor of this country is at stake, and if we don't do something about this fraud we will not survive, and there is no way to survive if we don't bring out the truth about how our president was killed four years ago."

--Jim Garrison on the Carson Show January 31, 1968--the year Johnson withdrew from re-election, King and Bobby were hit, and Nixon swept to victory on a secret plan to an honorable peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Lee is the Key, February 13, 2011
I recommend this for the clarity of Lee Oswald, arguably the most important figure of the latter half of the Twentieth Century.

I was in high school when I saw him shot down by Jack Ruby. Thirteen years later I was catapulted out of ignorance when Geraldo aired Zapruder and our president's head snapped back from a frontal shot. Before long I would be classified 1-A for a war that president never would have pursued.

So it is with wonder that Lee Oswald is revealed, not as some erratic, dark soul of Mailer and Paine, but a strong, bright spirit playing street theater, reading Russian poetry aloud to his lover, sitting in the back of the bus when such was certain to shorten one's life.

There is a threshold of disbelief Americans will first face when confronted with the real Lee Oswald versus the two-dimensional black-and-white cardboard stand-up theater lobby creation of Central Intelligence.

Judyth takes us day by day through the summer of '63 in a New Orleans of Lee working for Guy Bannister, running errands for Carlos Marcello, checking in with "Bishop" whom we know from Antonio Veciana's description to Gaeton Fonzi is the CIA's David Atlee Phillips.

We meet a Dave Ferrie who is not the red-wigged madman but a philosopher arguing for God to the sophomore atheists, a researcher for a cancer weapon with the subject mice moving through his apartment to that of Dr. Mary.

Dr. Mary Sherman, subject of Ed Haslam's fascinating work, in conjunction with legendary cancer-research pioneer Alvin Ochsner.

The prodigy researcher, teen-age savant Judyth caught the attention of national institutions and of the many opportunities was selected, and self-selected, New Orleans--a simple twist of fate.

Thanks to Anna Lewis widow of David Lewis who worked with Guy Bannister it is established without question, that, as the Reily pay stubs for Lee and her suggest, they were together that summer, involved in developing a successful cancer bioweapon to kill Castro, as well as sharing the idealism and romance of two remarkably sensitive and spiritually strong personae.

I have read many books on the subject; as James Douglass revealed John F. Kennedy the martyr for peace marked out for assassination, so, too, Judyth reflects the hidden hero "Lee" who tipped the Secret Service to the Chicago assassination plot.

Lee Oswald, far more than innocent; a Braveheart in the heart of the Cold War.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Road to Dallas: How. Why., June 14, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Doug Horne explains the Road Had to Run Through Dealey Plaza (Chapter 15), and Why The Inconvenient President was so directed (Chapter 16).

April 23, 1963, LBJ said JFK would attend a "luncheon in Dallas." The final decision was September 24, 1963.

The Secret Service violated the JFK Records Act by destroying Protective Survey Reports relating to the protection of President Kennedy from this date through the balance of 1963--obliterating records of agents involved in planning and executing the trip.

Dealey Plaza lay between the ceremonial dinner for Congressman Al "Wink" Thomas November 21, 1963, in Houston, and the Trade Mart speech demanded by Connally ("Lyndon's Boy John") overriding objections of advance man Jerry Bruno and Secret Service White House chief Jerry Behn.

The 120-degree turn slowed the limousine; when shots were fired Greer waited for the headshot(s). Greer would coordinate hijacking the body, constraining the autopsy, badgering Perry.

Pierre Salinger, With Kennedy: Dallas Morning News publisher E.M. Dealey told JFK November 1961 "We need a man on horseback to lead this country. . . .you are riding Caroline's bicycle."

JFK had angered the Pentagon by not saving the Bay of Pigs invasion, not attacking the Soviet missile sites in Cuba, unilaterally halting atomic testing, withdrawing from Vietnam (NSAM 263), seeking detente with Khruschev and rapprochement with Castro.

LBJ knew he would be dropped from the 1964 ticket and face prison over the Bobby Baker/Billy Sol Estes scandals.

The Kennedy brothers would have allowed Hoover's forced-retirement waiver to lapse, showing him the door in humiliation and disgrace.

Allen Dulles & Company weren't about to be "broken into a thousand pieces and scattered to the winds."

Dulles would harrumph, "That little Kennedy. . .he thought he was a god."

5.0 out of 5 stars Horne IV on preautopsy, Zapruder alteration, May 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this 390-page volume to be exceptionally valuable on its two main points, that there was a preautopsy at Bethesda to alter evidence, and secondly, that the Zapruder film was altered.

Horne presents testimony indicating the arrival of the body at 6:35 with Humes wielding a skull saw in the 6:45-7:15 period, then feigning surprise with Siebert and O'Neill's recorded remark re "surgery to the skull."

Horne presents lengthy technical proofs the archive Zapruder is not the Dealey camera original; that Kodak's Zavada is not credible; that two events occured at the CIA NPIC: I with Bruglioni Saturday 23 Nov; II with McMahon Sunday 24 Nov.

These two factors, the preautopsy and Zapruder alteration, are each conclusive proofs of conspiracy, crossfire, coverup; together they present as unarguable proof.

QED coup d'etat.

Which is not to say that everything Horne writes is universally accepted--rather, it is a rich presentation of the results of many researchers over the decades which is stimulus for thought and discussion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Cover-Up with Malice, August 29, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I knew this to be good at the outset having seen author Shane O'Sullivan's thoughtful eight-minute interview on Irish television.

In addition, Jim DiEugenio Chairman of Citizens for Truth in the Kennedy Assassination had looked at it with his special intensity and found it on balance a positive contribution to the research.

I was most intensely moved by Shane O'Sullivan's thorough presentation of the actions of LAPD officers Pena and Hernandez in an obvious cover-up with malice.

The two in question are familiar to anyone having read the initial Turner and Christian and the subsequent Klaber and Melanson--AID-trained, doing the (CIA's) work with police departments in Central and South America, shredding the interviews (Pena) and polygraphs (Hernandez) of any witnesses interfering with the lone-nut, single-gun theory.

One may choose to believe or not believe Sirhan's claim he does not remember the period between drinking coffee with the young woman and being "choked" on the steam table, but medical examiner Thomas Noguchi's testimony that Kennedy's head shot had residue indicating a muzzle distance of no more than one inch is not, in my view, open to question.

Tremendous pressure was placed on Noguchi to change his testimony--charges of unprofessional conduct which he defeated. Just as the defense attorney was under the shadow of legal liability for conduct in another case. Witnesses received threats to change their testimony in addition to the bullying by Hernandez and the censoring by Pena.

If there is fault here in the writing it is perhaps in accepting Moldea's defense of Cesar based on polygraph--does no one note Aldrich Ames passed his "flutter" after coaching from his KGB handler?

Also, there is an Antonioni Blow-Up (1966) attempt to find CIA assassin David Sanchez Morales at the Ambassador that night, in company with other CIA officials. This was a line of inquiry less successful than the rest, but the author's honesty in presenting all of it adds to his overall credibility.

In sum, we have here a fresh look by a bright mind from another time and another culture who finds compelling evidence for conspiracy and argues for reopening the case.
