Editorial Reviews


"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

This is the best kept secret of the last 60 years with more subplots and surprise situations (with no endings in sight). Haslam is a very modest and humble man calling for what should be an obvious formal investigation into many issues still unresolved. He claims he's NOT the investigation, but his exposure is enough that if one reads the work entirely with an open mind, they will understand why 60 Minute TV Magazine Producers call this the "story of the century." Haslam introduces us to an unsolved murder of one of the leading cancer researchers of the last 75 years, Mary Sherman. Her autopsy was sealed for around 30 years, and Haslams explanation of how she died makes far more sence than the official police report written under questionable police procedure. Most importantly, Haslam introduces us to the dark side of the Polio Vaccine and the complications it went through during it's development and the lasting problems we are now struggling with because of it -- the SV-40 VIRUS. It's all over your interest, but ask your doctor or a med school faculty doctor about the SV-40 Virus, and you'll learn, they know nothing about it. Their education and training has been so carefully compartmentalized and they know nothing of these issues, but they are all over the internet if you choose to look. Haslam teaches us about many doctors who lost their careers trying to blow the whistle on these issues.
In short the polio vaccine made from monkey kidneys carried the SV-40 virus which remains dormant inside baby boomers who received the polio vaccine until the immune system is weakened to the point where the SV-40 Virus can transform into one of the major cancer's: lung, breast, soft tissue, bone cancer, etc.

This is a significantly updated version of Mr Haslam's 1995 book, "Mary, Ferrie & the Monkey Virus". If you only have the older version, you will want to get "Dr. Mary's Monkey".

This book covers many areas of interest for a wide reader audience. Readers interested in new information about the JFK assassination will likely be the main audience, but other topics receive a lot of well-documented attention as well. These include epidemiology (polio, soft tissue cancers, AIDS), cold case murder investigations by an 'amateur sleuth', vaccines, New Orleans history, US medical research history, and scientific topics--linear particle accelerators in particular. Readers interested in any one of these topics should find this book interesting and credible.

I am not going to review this book in detail. Readers already know if they're basically interested or not, and additional detail is available from links I list below. I merely provide a shoppers' guide by addressing three points:

1. I believe that both the specialist and the general reader will find this book interesting, if not fascinating.

2. Ed Haslam is a credible author.

3. You can find out more about this book and its author for free with some links I provide.

This book is very well written and organized. It contains dozens of black and white photographs, charts, graphs and maps. These graphics, while unfortunately not indexed, are nonetheless placed strategically in the text to aid readers' understanding of the text. As a former New Orleans resident, I appreciated the historic photos and maps of New Orleans. While Mr. Haslam does provide a lot of information, a strong, page-turning narrative style underlies the information.

See attached the news 1967 article on Jack Ruby's death: "The Sun quoted those who saw him near the end as saying: He insisted that cancer cells had been injected into him in prison. " I also attached two news articles on Mary Sherman's death. She was killed too, but they transported the body to her apartment to make it look like a rob and stab murder. This was on the day that the Warren Commission started "investigating" the New Orleans connection. Mary Sherman was working for doctor Ochsner on the secret "Get Gastro with cancer" project. Judyth Vary Baker and Lee Oswald, and Clay Shaw and David Ferrie worked also on this project. Jack Ruby knew about it too. They were all killed, except for Shaw, he was high level CIA and could be relied on to keep his mouth when prosecuted by Jim Garrison, although there is some debate on whether his death was natural too. Judyth wasn't killed because she remained low profile and kept silent for 40 years.

Wikipedia [...]

See also the two pages of Double Cross, the biography on Sam Giancana written by his brother and godson. It says on page 416 that the list of weapons aimed at Castro included a cancer-producing injectable agent.


Some of the causes of death listed appear on the surface to be natural.
Keep in mind that the CIA developed methods to "make it look like an
accident". This was documented through the testimony of CIA technicians
to the Church committee who told of TWEP technology (Termination With
Extreme Prejudice) in 1975. These methods are designed to not be detected in postmortem examinations. I have a couple of exerpts of declassified CIA documents to demonstrate the case.
