I also found that information, sometimes verbatim, is repeated several times within the chapter, and sometimes within a few pages. I often found myself saying “I’ve read this already, get on with something new.”
The grammar and punctuation are, at best, high school level. Every chapter in both Dead Wrong and Hit List contains errors that nearly any competent proofreader would have caught. It’s almost as if neither book were proofed, or the authors simply refused to correct the mistakes before publication. I did like the fact that each chapter in Dead Wrong and Hit List covered a specific death. This allowed me to read the chapters in order of interest. However, there was one drawback. I read the JFK chapter last. Why is this a drawback? Because I noted a significant flaw that made me question the veracity of both books. In Dead Wrong the authors claim that on his deathbed E. Howard Hunt stated that LBJ coordinated the assassination through CIA agent Cord Meyer, whose wife was having an affair with JFK. By omission, this claim asserts the reason behind Meyer’s participation. Hunt actually stated that Cord Meyer’s ex-wife had an affair with JFK. Because they had long been divorced, a liaison between his ex-wife and JFK is hardly a believable reason to murder anyone, especially the President. This glaring omission makes me wonder if other facts were overlooked or if Belzer and Wayne intentionally omitted facts inconsistent with their thesis.
Even given the above, I do recommend the books because they provide a concise believable portrayal of each death, almost a Cliff’s Notes version.
