If Amazon permitted a 6th star this book would deserve it for two reasons . The first being that , unlike a slew of sensational " final complete solution to the JFK assassination " ripoffs already published , with more surely to follow in this 50th anniversary year ,the author actually does present new , important and BELIEVABLE evidence on the assassination . Succinctly put , he located and interviewed a key witness whose testimony had been " creatively rewritten " when published by the Warren Commission .Ms. Victoria Adams was employed on the 4th Floor of the Texas School Book Depository on Nov. 22 1963 . Immediately after seeing JFK's car dash off , she hurried down the stairs to find out what had happened . Neither she nor her companion saw or heard anyone else on those stairs that Oswald would have had to use at the same time to reach the lunchroom where Police Officer Baker found him within 90 seconds of the last shot was fired .Therefore , Oswald could not have been a 6th Floor shooter .
The second , and I believe equally important justification , would be the truly superb narrative form used . While there surely more exhaustive treatments of the assassination available , they frequently exhausting as well. Mr. Ernest tells the story by telling us his own personal story of growth from an obsessed naive youngster making sometimes comical attempts at being an investigator to a mature man who , while never fully abandoning the quest was a real life husband and father living a real world life . The story is told with humility and charm , two qualities often sadly lacking in other assassination writings . There is none of the shrill , off-putting , self righteous , judgmental posing that often stains writing in this area . Mr. Ernest has produced a book that is both historically important and a damn good warm read , an all too rare commodity . Bravo !

I have read about 200 books relative to the JFK assassination, with some written in the 1960s and the 1970s. Others written much later. The author (Barry Ernest) first started his research in about 1964, kept it up for some time thereafter, but then due to military service (Navy), need to start a career, marriage and children etc..., then got back into his research and writing in the late 1990s. He collaborated with many other JFK researchers who doubted the Warren Commission findings, and finally sat down to write his own book. From his early research on, until shortly before he began writing this book, the author was on a quest to ascertain whatever happened to "The Girl on the Stairs". The "girl's" name is Victoria Elizabeth Adams" who worked on he fourth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. She was an eye witness to the JFK assassination, and she provided testimony to the FBI, CIA, Warren Commission attorneys et al about what she witnessed. However, since her eyewitness testimony would conflict with their theory of what happened, her testimony was changed by the Warren Commission attorneys, to make it appear that she agreed with the commissions findings. This book will provide you with an insight of the search for Victoria Adams, and her eventual finding, and to let her (The Girl on the Stairs" to set the record straight.

Mr. Ernest has mentioned so kindly - researchers who spent time searching for truth and supportive purpose as he has so wonderfully done in the
Search for declarative solid meaningful truth - for me, his book is one of so many I've read over the past 30, years and this book ranks at the very top
Of the list as it confirms my belief that a coup'de gra with the. assassination John F Kennedy and the culprit without a shadow of doubt WAS NOT
Lee Harvey Oswald but he was totally incapable with weapons and since over 50, years have passed since JFK'S death, what has not been mentioned
In this book is Why He was assassinated - what was the over riding reason Kennedy should be killed - there is the belief that John Kennedy, while he lived
was an Agent of Change and had to be eliminated.

really a great book, i couldn't put it down... many of the books dealing with the JFK assassination get a little "deep in the weeds" for me ... to be honest i have a tough time following many of them and finishing most of them... this one is entirely different and will take the reader on a quest for the truth that will cover decades of personal searching... you'll almost find yourself along with the author on his journey.... and when you're finished, you'll be amazed at what you've learned and now will better understand....

This book definitely lived up to the hype.I had never heard of this woman or her connection to the JFK assassination. Her story is quite believable and lends credibility to those who believe Oswald was never on the 6th floor at the time of the shooting. The author takes the reader through his trek to locate a key witness whose tale, if true, upsets everything the U.S. government has been telling the American public for over 50 years.Excellent read!.

Fantastic read. Opens up another viewpoint from an eyewitness who was at the depository, but never called for the Warren Commission. Loved it. Gave the first one away, then bought another one for my personal library.

Barry Ernest has provided us with another very valuable argument against the official "Oswald did" verdict. I only vaguely remembered a reference or two to Victoria Adams very early in my research on the case. I checked the index of my many books on the assassination and found that even the few authors who mentioned her doubted her story. Mr. Ernest has provided us with convincing proof that Miss Adams' statements were accurate; giving the job of getting Oswald down from the sixth floor to his encounter with Officer Baker yet another serious problem to overcome. Kudos to both Mr. Ernest's persistence in finding Victoria and to writing a very entertaining book

A fabulous addition to any JFK buff's shelves. It alone attests to the truth of Oswald being just what he claimed, "A patsy."
This lady's personal story is moving and reveals how such eye witnesses were dismissed (or murdered) to keep their CIA/NSA
false facts from public knowledge.

Victoria Adams, did she know more than she was credit with. Why the Warren Commission falsify her testimony. Why did the FBI not include her changes in her testimony. Read it and find out why.

I like the way the author approached the topic through his own personal journey from belief in the Warren Commission to deep doubt. Basic premise of the book is that the girl on top of the stairs should have seen Oswald coming down from the snipers nest, as she would have been on the stairs the same time as Oswald, according to calculations. She didn't see him, but saw him in the cafeteria just minutes later. Not written in a sensationalistic manner, but step by step and therefore very interesting and believable.
Will we ever know who killed Kennedy? This book is a worthwhile addition to this soon to be 50 year debate.
