"No JFK book can come close to it. . . . Haslam has added many more illustrations, pictures, and maps that let you visualize his story as he tells it." —Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination (formerly Probe Magazine)
"It's an eye-opening ride into government cover-ups, the true role of Lee Harvey Oswald and perhaps one of the biggest medical scandals in history." —Jim Marrs, author, Rule by Secrecy

A frequent traveler to New Orleans, I find the ariel maps particularly usefull to my research and pleasure. Lafayette Square is a great place to stay if you're in town. Quiet, Safe, and only six blocks from the Quarter. Most of the places referred to in the book are very close to Lafayette. I shiver as I walk it's streets. Oswald, Bannister, Ferrie, Shaw, Ocshner, and wonderful beautiful DR. Mary Sherman all walked the same streets. DR Mary's Monkey will put you right there!
It probably sounds strange but for me reading this book was sort of like watching the 1950s science fiction movie Invaders From Mars. In that movie a kid sees a flying saucer land out behind his house. He soon realizes that the Martians are implanting tracking devices into people's necks to control their minds. But nobody will believe him.
This book has that same feeling of a terrible secret lurking on the next page that is going to jump out and shock the reader. And in the case of this book those monsters are really there.
The main focus of the book is not the JFK assassination. Rather it's mainly about weird scientific experiments where people were trying to create what can be called a biological weapon that would induce a very rapid form of cancer in people. The connection to the JFK assassination is that Lee Harvey Oswald and other people who have been associated with the assassination were also involved in these experiments.
This is a rock solid book which benefits from author Edward Haslam's many years of patient, painstaking research and actual experiences growing up and living in New Orleans.
Haslam wrote an earlier book some years back about this same subject. Then something interesting happened. Judyth Baker ended her decades long, fear induced silence about what she knew concerning these medical experiments and Lee Harvey Oswald's involvement. Judyth's revelations provided corroboration and validation for a lot of Haslam's theories.
Judyth Baker is a key figure in the JFK assassination for understanding Lee Oswald. Ed provides some of that information about Oswald in this book.
Lee Oswald thought he was part of an abort team which was attempting to prevent the JFK assassination. This explains a lot about Oswald's bizarre behavior in Dallas after the assassination. They had that poor guy so confused that he didn't know if he was coming or going until it was much too late.
Judyth Baker has authored some books which are available on Amazon and which I have ordered.
By a strange twist of fate Ed ended up moving to Judyth's home town in Florida.
There's a strange incident in the book where Ed was introduced to a girl back in his college days who said her name was Judyth Baker but it really wasn't Judyth. What happened there I don't know. That incident is consistent with the rest of the book which has a Twilight Zone feeling..
Reading these types of books can be fun and I don't want to give away some of the shocking events and conclusions. But let me show a quote from the book which is very important where Ed talks about the implications of biological experimentation and warfare:
"This is the real danger. The moment you place a test tube full of viruses in front of a linear particle accelerator, you enter a brave new world. And you become part of the biological history of our planet."
That statement gives a lot of clues about what the book is about. This type of experimentation was being done for legitimate reasons but the research was high jacked by the CIA to create the bioweapon.
But even if the CIA hadn't become involved, this type of research and experimentation was inherently dangerous in its own right.
As far as what they may have created and already unleashed on the world, I'll let the reader find that out.
I wanted to mention a possible misunderstanding that some people have about president Kennedy and the disastrous Bay Of Pigs invasion.
According to author Fletcher Prouty JFK did not refuse to provide air support for this event. Rather on the night before the invasion someone in the CIA cancelled JFK's order to destroy Castro's three airplanes. They did this to embarrass JFK and JFK publicly accepted the blame.
By then the CIA was completely out of control. As Ed Haslam says their actions were bordering somewhere between insubordination and treason.
