Editorial Reviews


- 'The mystery of Gary Devore's fate may linger as long as that of JFK'- Sean Stone, Watching the Hawks 
- 'The Greatest Spy Story Never Told' Vice Magazine
- 'Alford's book is a compelling whodunnit, liberally sprinkled with satire and humour'
Nexus Magazine
- 'A fascinating, very scary book, which I just read and strongly recommend' Professor Mark Miller, New York University
- 'An enthralling account of how Alford's work on Hollywood's relationship with the US military and intelligence services became more like an Oliver Stone conspiracy movie than conventional academic inquiry. This engaging account of the life of a zero-hours academic is also a cautionary tale of how thin the line can be between scholarly research and personal obsession' Professor Philip Hammond, London South Bank University
- 'Alford is a serious, measured, scholarly investigator and this book is the best treatment of this macabre episode that anyone's liable to get their hands on for a good long while. So you had better enjoy it' Matthew D. Phelan
'A solid mystery with the gore played down and the tension paramount.  The CSI material regarding the hand bones is intriguing, adding yet another layer of detail to the story. It's these kinds of fresh gems in the story that make it stand out. We can feel trepidation and many other emotions throughout, due to the author's keen sense of structure,nice pacing, sensory details and solid delivery at the end' Annual E-Book Awards

About the Author

Matthew Alford is a post-doctoral researcher based at the University of Bath. Matthew examines US government-censored TV and movie scripts. His latest project involves analysing papers at the Department of Defense's film archive in Washington DC, which will generate a second edition of his latest book National Security Cinema and a new introduction to the foreign language translations of his debut book Reel Power: Hollywood Cinema and American Supremacy. Matthew is also a writer / performer. His feature film and novel, The Writer with No Hands, sees him examining CIA activity in Los Angeles. The movie was premiered in 2014 at Hot Docs, Toronto and received 11 wins and nominations at festivals worldwide. A TV edit began selling to a set of national platforms in 2018.
