"Nelson reviews a massive amount of secondary sources to support his own hypothesis that the mastermind behind the assassination was then-VP Lyndon Johnson." Publishers Weekly Review
Nelson's boundless enthusiasm, not to mention his (mostly) consistent theory of how it all was arranged and then covered up, should sell the book . . . .the book is a fascinating read, full of some very clever creative thinking -- Booklist Review
“A masterpiece . . . beautifully written.” (Jim Fetzer, "The Real Deal")
From the Author
Together, the two books tear off the veneer of LBJ as the great, magnanimous leader, the "Colossus" according to Bill Moyers, in his review of Mark Updegrove's paean to him, written to continue the construct that has been built by many other authors during the last half century. The new book will expose how Johnson planted lies that he knew would grow into "truths" through future books like these, even though these "truths" were conceived within his delusional mind. Those lies grew larger and larger during his presidency, finally forcing him to walk away from the very office that had been his life-long quest, his "destiny," to which he had been propelled by cross-fire in Dallas that he planned and facilitated.
