Dead Wrong is a study of the scientific and forensic facts of four assassinations of the 1960s (President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Black Panther leader Fred Hampton), as well as an examination of new and incriminating evidence indicative of murder, not suicide, in the deaths of Marilyn Monroe, White House Counsel Vincent Foster, U.N. Weapons Inspector Dr. David C. Kelly and bioweapons expert Frank Olson. It also examines the cases of two murders directly linked to Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States.
This audiobook is narrated by Richard Belzer, Scott Brick, Kelli Giddish, Laurie Anderson, Stefan Rudnicki, Andre Braugher, Judy Collins, Ice-T, Danny Pino, John Lee, Tom Stechschulte, and Steve Zirnkilton.

I've heard and read of these famous murders and conspiracies and most of the people involved in them are dead...But...The Vince Foster murder should be investigated...The poor man was murdered by the government and the next person that wants to be President...
The book makes a solid case for most if not all of the cases, citing multiple sources for each and covering many different facets of each case. However while laying out the facts from several different sources specifically on the Marilyn Monroe and JFK there is a large amount of repetitiveness. This can become quite tedious and sometimes unbearable. I found myself skipping through at least an hour of The Maryland Monroe story and 45 minutes of JFK. It was worth it though I learned many new things surrounding several of the events.
Yes, but with a warning that it is terribly repetitive. Other reviewers have pointed this out, but until I listened myself, I did not believe it could be that bad. The content however is of such great interest that I recommend it nonetheless.
Reveals many things that are important to know.
One the best I've read. Didn't want it end. So much knowledge in one book. Genius
He did great job
Marylyn's death. So many mistakes were made and still a sucide. Sad
An editor to weed out the instances where the same point is made over and over and over again. I'm not sure if this was bad writing or someone padding out a book. And then there's the overuse of the word "literally."
They took interesting facts and wrote them in the most hacky way possible. Truly poor writing.
Probably would recommend.
There were no surprises. Conclusions were what has been suspected all along.
Evidence for the conclusions reached was reasonably compelling, although it clearly was selected to support the author's conclusions. But provactive just the same. The book could have been shortened by about a third if redundancies were omitted.
Informative, scary, and easy to listen to. I love thinking outside the box and this was spot on my way of thinking.
