Audible Editor Reviews

Fifty years have passed since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, but the details of what happened on that fateful day are still highly debated. Here is Patrick Nolan's welcome addition to that debate, gathering the research of many forensic scientists and investigations to paint a vivid picture of the assassination of JFK as well as his brother, Senator Robert F. Kennedy. The argument presented is fascinating and points directly and unapologetically at the CIA. Stephen Bowlby gives a balanced narration of this work, going between a stark journalistic tone and forceful emphasis on the hard-hitting information.

Publisher's Summary

The US Central Intelligence Agency is no stranger to conspiracy and allegations of corruption. Across the globe, violent coups have been orchestrated, high-profile targets kidnapped, and world leaders dispatched at the hands of CIA agents. During the 1960's, on domestic soil, the methods used to protect their interests and themselves, at the expense of the American people, were no less ruthless.

In CIA Rogues and the Killing of the Kennedys, Patrick Nolan fearlessly investigates the CIA’s involvement in the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy - why the brothers needed to die and how rogue intelligence agents orchestrated history’s most infamous conspiracy.

Nolan furthers the research of leading forensic scientists, historians, and scholars who agree that there remain serious unanswered questions regarding the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, fifty years ago, and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. He revisits and refutes what is currently known about Lee Harvey Oswald and Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, and offers listeners a compelling profile of the CIA’s Richard Helms, an amoral master of clandestine operations with a chip on his shoulder.

Bolstered by a foreword by Dr. Henry C. Lee, one of the world’s foremost forensic authorities, CIA Rogues and the Killing of the Kennedys is an unmatched effort in forensic research and detective work. As the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination approaches, Nolan has made a significant contribution to the literature on that fateful day in Dallas, as well as shed light on that dark night at the Ambassador Hotel. Listeners interested in conspiracy, the Kennedy family, or American history will find this audiobook invaluable.

    Story
    "Thirston Howell III's voice"

    The subject & detail offered in this book was concise and well written. The hardest part was listening to the narrator read it. At times, he sounded like the millionaire on Gilligan's Island... Good book otherwise.

    Story
    "Illuminating"

    Interesting and entertaining. I have read multiple different books on the JFK assassination, this one is good, though certainly not the best. However, it's the details if the RFK assassination that sets it apart. My one complaint being that the author frequently uses the words "clearly" and "obviously" to blow past areas that could potentially cause a reader to question a conclusion.

    The research and detail is great. The writing style leaves a bit to be desired.

    "Maybe its me"
    What did you like best about CIA Rogues and the Killing of the Kennedys? What did you like least?

    The narration was stilted (names mispronounced). The content was a repetition of what is known about the field (I have listened to 90% of the books on nonfiction versioins onI JFK


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The introduction by Henry Lee, M.D. I wish he would have written the book.
