1) This is a book for every level of JFK assassination knowledge, from total novice to full-on conspiracy theorist. Clearly written, fun, not bogged down with too many footnotes, it is an easier read than most JFK assassination books. Yet, it has some new information, like Mr. Lane's relationship with forming the House Select Committee on Assassinations and how the HSCA blew its mandate and screwed up.
2) The MK/ULTRA stuff was not weighty and seemed appropriate and necessary for the discussion of how the CIA killed JFK. It was also done quickly enough that it didn't get bogged down, yet it contributed greatly to his points.
3) He cites to a number of other works, all good, that further the discussion, and expands on the clear deficiencies of the Warren Report, which he seems to have memorized. The first half of the book is well footnoted, yet not too much to bog it down.
Now the not so good:
1) Those wonderful footnotes disappear halfway through the book. He makes a number of assertions that, although I know them to be documented elsewhere and easily proven (though requiring some discussion and citations), that have zero footnotes. He also cites to woefully too few other fine books out there that prove his points. It leaves the impression that Mark Lane has not read some of the better books from the last 20 years, which might be the case.Read more ›
I have known Mark Lane since the mid 1960's. Mark investigated my assertions pertaining to my tangential involvement, as an agent of the United States Secret Service, in the aftermath of the Kennedy assassination and summarized my predicament on page 235 of his book "Rush to Judgment" published in 1966. Contrary to what many believe, Mark Lane is not a conspiracy theorist. The documentary and other evidence adduced from painstaking and in depth research as exhibited in "Last Word" shows that Attorney Lane is a fearless, pragmatic, methodical investigator determined to get the truth before the American People and "let the chips fall where they may".
The author does not outright recklessly accuse our government or its agencies; but what Lane does is hammer home the undeniable facts buttressed by substantial proofs of his allegations. I sincerely hope that the book "Last Word" is not the last word that we hear from Attorney Mark Lane. We need more men of his integrity and concern for our freedoms if we are to maintain our leadership of the free world. I highly recommend that you read this book and draw your own conclusions from the research contained therein.

Since he raised the first serious voice against the Warren Commission and his subsequent life's work has, to a large part been dedicated to getting at the truth, Lane has been a target of a number of overt and covert campaigns to discredit him. He seems to have emerged much the stronger man. It seems part of this book is he settling scores. That is fine, but I was hoping for more evidence and less carping.
The book tends to repeat issues and facts, as if the reader missed them the first time or two. Several times I had to catch myself and see if I had misplaced the book mark and reread a part. He could have used a competant editor. While his excursions as to a number of misdead of the CIA are interesting and damning, some of this seems unrelated to the assassination.
While Lane has a few scattered footnotes, many of his statements needed further documentation. Also the absence of an index and biliography do not help the case presented in the book.
While there seem to be no shortage of interest, books, or websites on the events in Dallas, much of it is still on the fringe. Lane is still in the top tier of legitimate investigators, but I expected more-and he still needs an editor!
