Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I was fortunate enough to meet and talk with Bruce Roberts, author of the Gemstone File, and to follow up some of his suggestions regarding where his letters could be found. I have spent a number of years investigating his statements, and have found corroboration in many cases. Also, his general scenario makes more sense to me in context than the traditional piece-meal version of how and why these events, which have shaped our history, occurred.

From the Inside Flap

Stephanie Caruana once dove into what Thomas Pynchon calls the Mnemonic Deep and untangled the Gemstone line of history. In "The Gemstone File, A Memoir", she reveals the full, disorderly tangles that she once boiled down to a Skeleton Key for future generations. In the process, she gives the most comprehensive look at the original Gemstone correspondence by Bruce Roberts, and a generous glance as well to attendant research. Students of conspiracy cannot consider their education complete until they have read this volume!

By E. Champman on December 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book confirms the death bed confession of E Howard Hunt to his son and points to the fact that multiple assassins were waiting in Dallas that day. Ms Caruana did an admirable job in presenting the Bruce Roberts material as Roberts was being harassed around the clock in San Francisco and his letters appear rambling and paranoid.

This book gives an overview of that which happened behind the scenes before and after the Kennedy Assassination.

Beautifully written by Stephanie Caruana, taken from orignal notes by Bruce Roberts who knew, this book is an eyeopener for those who want to know how things operate behind the political landscape.

Format: Paperback
I find this book to be a very entertaining mixture of supposition, guesswork, contradiction, and extraordinary searching for any evidence that could possibly be used to indicate that there is a vast underground conspiracy that really controls the United States and quite possibly all of the world.

All in all, I find it a little hard to believe and for two or three reasons:

1. I've been to the Texas School Book Depository, and to the window where the shooting was done. I could have made those shots. People don't want to think that one man could have done this, but the target was right there, an easy shot. It wasn't necessary to have a team of shooters.

2. To tie together all the things in this book from JFK to Mary Jo Kopechne, Onassis, RFK, South Vietnam, George Wallace, and many, many more would require such a huge operation, with so many people that screw ups would have occurred. All of these killings wouldn't have been as smooth as they were. Furthermore, someone would have talked. There would be some real evidence.

3. The third reason is WHY. Why would such an organization be set up in the first place. Why would it be kept going down through the centuries. Why bother?
