Steve Gillon follows Lee Harvey Oswald for the 48 hours after the Kennedy assassination in search of answers to the question that has been troubling America for the past five decades: Why did he shoot JFK?
The Warren Commission speculated that Oswald was simply a deranged sociopath. But recently declassified materials raise new troubling questions. Where was Oswald going when he fled the School Book Depository Building on Friday afternoon? Is it possible that Cuban intelligence officials may have encouraged Oswald to commit the crime and promised to help him escape?
This audiobook goes back to the Dallas Municipal Building and recreates the interrogation sessions. What emerges from this expose is refreshingly new, and more complicated, portrait of the man who assassinated President John F. Kennedy.

Oh, no...not another book on the Kennedy assassination? Yep! and, this one covers the period of time between Oswald's shooting and his shooting death by Jack Ruby. It was written entirely by the author's research and he cites written and oral references and draws appropriate conclusions. It also provides insight into a short period of history and illuminates facts not previously known. I liked the read/listen and will look for more of Gillon's books.
British ex-pat living in NC. Have more personalities than Sybil which is reflected in my choice of books! Frustrated writer at heart.
Steven Gillon stated the facts as he saw them. Michael Lackey breathed life into those facts. I really did not learn anything new other than the very close relationship between the Press and the Police. THAT was a surprise to this listener I can tell you!
In my humble opinion, after listening to this book twice, I find it totally implausible that Oswald acted alone. This book, based on much research, really does reiterate that Oswald was not at all mature or sufficiently organized to even contemplate this horrendous act.
Not everyone's 'cup of tea' but I enjoyed it.
