Blood, Money, and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K | [Barr McClellan]

Blood, Money, and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K

Blood, Money, & Power exposes the secret, high-level conspiracy in Texas that led to President John F. Kennedy’s death and the succession of Lyndon B. Johnson as president in 1963. Attorney Barr McClellan, a former member of L.B.J.’s legal team, uses hundreds of newly released documents, including insider interviews, court papers, and the Warren Commission, to illuminate the maneuvers, payoffs, and power plays that revolved around the assassination of Kennedy and to expose L.B.J.’s involvement in the murder plot.

Audible Editor Reviews

Barr McClellan was a former partner at a law firm run by Edward Clark, who also served as Lyndon B. Johnson's lawyer. In Blood, Money, and Power, McClellan adds to the conspiracy theories surrounding the death of John F. Kennedy by pointing the finger at Johnson, who he claims was aided in the cover-up by Clark. David Drummond has a clinical style that recalls a broadcaster or documentarian, which aims to lend gravity to McClellan's bold assertions, and listeners intrigued by the conspiracies surrounding JFK's death will see Blood, Money, and Power as more evidence in the unending speculation.

Publisher's Summary

An insider’s look at America’s greatest unsolved mystery.

Blood, Money, & Power exposes the secret, high-level conspiracy in Texas that led to President John F. Kennedy’s death and the succession of Lyndon B. Johnson as president in 1963. Attorney Barr McClellan, a former member of L.B.J.’s legal team, uses hundreds of newly released documents, including insider interviews, court papers, and the Warren Commission, to illuminate the maneuvers, payoffs, and power plays that revolved around the assassination of Kennedy and to expose L.B.J.’s involvement in the murder plot.

In addition to revealing new information, McClellan answers common questions surrounding the assassination of our 35th president. Who had the opportunity, motive, and means to assassinate J.F.K.? Who controlled the investigation and findings of the Warren Commission? This historically significant book is proof that absolute power, money, blood, corruption, and deception were at the heart of politics in the early 1960s, and it represents the very best investigative journalism has to offer.

    "The Closest We'll Get to a Texas Insider's Version"

    I suspect this is a book better read than listened to. In the Audible version the choppy, repetitive, disorganized aspects are very evident. This is partly because McClellan is more concerned with emphasizing central points than with providing a smooth-flowing narrative. The choppiness may also be due to a lawyer's cautiousness. If hazarding a guess, he tells you he's offering a possible theory; if constructing a persuasive brief, he reiterates the key events and background details to refresh our memory and keep us focused.

    McClellan ties his themes together with dressy literary elements (epigraphs that open and close each chapter) but these are designed to work on the printed page, not in audio, where they trip up the listener like bollards in the pavement.

    The latter part of the book is pure autobiographical narrative and flows smoothly. No plausible guesswork here; it's a true recollection and the best part of the book. McClellan worked for LBJ crony Edward Aubrey Clark in the Austin law firm that bought politicians, engaged hit men, and looked to profit enormously once they had Johnson in the White House.
