By A Customer on September 7, 1999
Format: Paperback
The 1967-69 investigation of the Kennedy assassination by the late New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison remains one of the most controversial moments of modern American history. William Davy's new book Let Justice Be Done provides important insights into the significance not only of the investigation and subsequent trial for conspiracy of local businessman Clay Shaw, but the world of clandestinism at an important phase of the Cold War.
Oliver Stone's film JFK offered a Garrison (played by Kevin Costner) very dependant on Hollywood superhero conventions. The real Garrison was a flawed man who was nevertheless folkloric in his commitment to the truth of the Kennedy murder. In contrast to the work of his detractors, Davy's book avoids long-distance psychoanalysis of Garrison and sticks with hard, documentary evidence.
We now know that the FBI, CIA, and, much later, the House Select Committee of the US Congress took Garrison very seriously, believing he indeed "had something." Davy shows incontrovertibly that sectors of government authority worked hard not just to discredit Garrison's evidence, but to destroy him utterly.
We also know several key points, thanks to Davy. Among them is that Clay Shaw was a liar and a perjurer. He lied to his own attorney in open court when he was asked whether he ever worked for the CIA. He lied repeatedly and with great facility to journalists on the same question. Between 1948 and 1956, Shaw filed over 30 reports to the CIA, some of them containing what amounts to psychological profiles of foreign leaders.
Many argue that Shaw was an "unwitting" CIA agent. The published record simply doesn't support this. Shaw certainly knew he wasn't filing reports to the Rotary Club.

Format: Paperback
In the fine legal tradition of jurisprudence, the line for determining innocence or guilt, acquital or conviction in a criminal trial has always been "reasonable doubt." Thusly, shortly after midnight on 1 March 1969, Clay L. Shaw, the only man ever indicted for conspiracy to kill President Kennedy, was acquited after deliberations of less than an hour.
Though I have always believed in Shaw's participation in the alleged conspiracy and supported the allegations of the late New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, I too would have to have voted to acquit based on the evidence presented at trial (which thanks to fellow reviewer Dave Reitzes, is available to anyone at www4.50megs.com/reitzes/shawtest.html). However, after reading Mr. Davy's book, I no longer have any doubt whatsoever in my mind that Clay Shaw was guilty as charged.
This book is by no means the definitive book on the Garrison probe. That book has yet to be written. What I would recommend is to first read James DiEugenio's "Destiny Betrayed," which is a far better summary of the actual investigative process, the assassination in general, Jim Garrison himself and the later aspects of the investigation (i.e. the HSCA) up until 1992. Then read this book.

This book is a masterwork. As thoroughly researched and footnoted as any book I've ever read, this is the definitive take on the conspiracy that killed JFK. Lee Oswald's connections with David Ferrie and Clay Shaw, as well as many other CIA operatives is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. Also there is disturbing proof of a coordinated smear campaign against Jim Garrison; an effort to lie about him (and the assassination) to the American people that continues to this day. Every citizen should own this book.

let justice be done is a clear, logical book which backs up Garrison's misunderstood case. Bill Davy seems to have actually dug thru the ARRB declassified documents and saw a clearer picture of the case. he offers pure facts, not speculation or theory like in every conspiracy book. moreover, the fingers do point at Shaw and Ferrie as co-conspirators. highly recommended. dont believe authors like Pat Lambert and Dave Ritzes or others who are Anti-Garrison, they are more bias into smearing Garrison by believing in the negative rumors and snotty remarks about the late DA. this is a man who learned to fight the Govt. and Media Establishment with honesty and courage.

Bill Davy's Let Justice Be Done is must reading for those who wish to be informed by facts, not hysterical bias, about the 1969 investigation into, and trial for, the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Jim Garrison, the former District Attorney of New Orleans remains the sole public official to ever bring a thorough and honest inquiry into the facts surrounding this murder. For his efforts the media smeared and libeled him, while the FBI bugged and infiltrated his office. For citizens struggling to make sense of Waco and the FBI's startling lack of disclosure six years ago, Davy takes the reader back thirty six years, to the true "crime of the century." To the investigation by the D.A. whose integrity was not for sale and back to the salient questions of "Why?" and "Who benefited?" read this book and draw your own conclusions. Attorney Dawn Meredith, Austin, Texas
