I am not familiar with conspiracy theories, and this book is not one to take them on, except for some discussion at the end about John Doe #2 and a few other details. If I assume the investigators tell the truth, it doesn't seem that McVeigh and Nichols really needed much more help for what was a pretty simple plan, and they never really had much funding, resorting to theft to help raise expenses. And if more people were involved, perhaps those folks would have been smarter about covering their tracks, like making sure they had a decent getaway car. It seems that once the investigators got some key evidence, so much fell into place with the requisite leg work, perhaps disrupted more by bogus leads, false witness stories and such than complex evidence trails. If this is how things were spelled out at the trial, then it's no wonder these guys went down easily.
