On November 22, 1963, the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and his wife Jackie were taking part in a presidential motorcade through Dallas. Thousands lined the streets cheering; others hung out of windows to catch a glimpse of the much-loved First Lady and President.
Suddenly, the unthinkable happened. Three shots rang out. In front of the world, John F. Kennedy was fatally wounded. Lee Harvey Oswald was caught. But did he pull the trigger? Who really killed JFK? Fifty years after the tragic events in Dallas, JFK: The Smoking Gun solves the ultimate cold case. With the forensic eye of a highly regarded ex-cop, Colin McLaren has gathered the evidence, studied 10,000 pages of transcripts, and found the witnesses the Warren Commission failed to call, and the exhibits and testimonies that were hidden - until now.
JFK: The Smoking Gun proves, once and for all, who killed the President. And the answer is far more shocking than any fanciful conspiracy could ever be.

I suppose anyone who still believes in the Warren Commission...and the tooth fairy might enjoy this.
Research into the facts of the case and not omitting anything that didn't fit into his preconceived notions.
Nothing...the reading was fine.
Anger that this type of crap is still being spewed on the public. Sadness that I didn't research the book more before buying it.
DO NOT BUY! If you want a good JFK assassination audio book, try "Hear No Evil" by Donald Byron Thomas or "Accessories After the Fact" by Sylvia Meagher --neither of which come up when you search "JFK" on the Audible site, by the way!
Never read the print version, but the audio version is very good and very well narrated.
I think the expectation was the best part...that we're all about to learn something genuinely NEW in the JFK assassination.
His narration allows the book to play out like a cinema on the screen of one's mind. The basis of great narration is that one forgets they are being "told" the story...this is great narration.
Yes indeed it was!
I really LIKE the premise for this book, and in light of recent Secret Service scandals it certainly seems plausible. The evidence about minute bullet fragments seen on X-ray in the President's brain was quite convincing, though I'm not prepared to accept Oswald as a truly lone, unbacked, non-affiliated "gunman" as the author suggests. At at time when virtually nobody was granted permission to move to the USSR - Oswald was. At a time when virtually nobody was granted permission to come from the USSR to the USA, Oswald was - and this AFTER supposedly renouncing his citizenship. Plus he got to bring his Russian bride?!If anything I'm more prepared to believe it was indeed a conspiracy to murder the CIC, but the Secret Service performed as unwitting accomplices! Certainly a great many "players" at that time had motive to want JFK dead. Equally certain, NO organized "hit" is going to put all the eggs in a single basket....As long as the government and willing "shills" are around to "poo-poo" allegations of conspiracy, and in light of the fact that virtually everyone with firsthand knowledge was either murdered or has died, the American public is virtually assured the Kennedy assassination will remain as mysterious in the future as it was after the lame-O Warren commission published a shoddy compilation of unconnected facts and events without ever once attempted to present a codified picture of what it all added up too. So, I like the book...like the premise, not sure it's THE premise, but considering how bumbling and incompetent the current Secret Service has been revealed to be...the notion of an incompetent boob snatching the trigger on an AR-15 is certainly worth consideration!
So many books; so many theories about the assassination of President Kennedy but this one really makes sense. A blatant cover-up by the Secret Service to protect, not only one of their own but the country from the tragic results of that November day in 1963. This one was very convincing.
Excellent narration of yet another off-the-wall JFK Conspiracy Theory, but riveting nonetheless. Highly recommended and thoroughly fascinating, even if the subject matter concerns a horrible, depressing episode in modern American history.
The truth was directly in front of our face all along.
SCIENCE WAS WRONG by Stanton Friedman and Kathleen Marden
Another telling book based on pure facts and empirical evidence.
The total chaos in the Dallas ER room where the Secret Service agent breaks the FBI's agent's jaw with his sub-machine gun. All this while FBI agent is trying to collect crime scene evidence.
Some accidents are better left untold.
I have read and researched the JFK assassination from numerous different angles, this is the first account that I have read - that actually ONLY relies on literally "just the facts". Maybe in 1962, it wasn't in the best interest of our country to expose the gross negligence of our Secret Service personnel, but the cover up is over 50 years dead, and it is time to tell the truth. I also find it an absolutely amazing feat, also on the Secrete Service - the lengths they went through to cover up their incredible accident.
