In this audio book, longtime Republican political operative Roger Stone makes a daring assertion about one of the most pivotal moments in American history.
Featuring a measured performance by David Rapkin, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ presents the theory that the CIA conspired with the Mafia and Texas oil men to kill Kennedy and install Lyndon Johnson as the president. Although Stone’s assertion will certainly be questioned, his firsthand knowledge of politics and politicians shines through in his writing.
Rapkin’s calm, conversational performance helps make Stone’s contentious claims feel slightly less hyperbolic.

Highly recommended because it provides convinging evidence which shows that the Warren Commission was a complete white wash. Oswald was a distraction to prevent the real killers from being sought. The evidence is very clear in this regard.
the book is too long to go through in one sitting
The American people need to listen to this book and to rise up against the tyranical forces in power. This is disturbing but inaction will lead to tyrany and oppression.
The government needs to come clean.

Every American should read this book particularly those of us who lived through this
era. I will never look at American Politics again in the same way.
that LBJ did it. A great deal of circumstantial evidence. Though circumstantial, enough of it to make defending Johnson seem impossible. The story is interesting; however, it comes across as a bit of a research paper with a lot of name dropping.
I try not to buy in to conspiracy theories and I only bought this audiobook because it was on sale and the reviews here and on other websites were pretty good, but wow!
I kinda found it very believable.
Certainly without doing my own research I have to take the author's facts at face value. But even if only 50% of the facts are accurate, LBJ certainly seemed like a man of massive ego and hugely questionable morals who certainly had the power, connections and motive to clear the way for his own presidency.
It was certainly a very ugly period in US history and there are so many theories, so many movies, books and documentaries about the events, it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. But this book read fresh and rigorous and I was left feeling uneasy and that he should have been at least a leading suspect in any true investigation.
Finally a convincing version of one of the most significant events in the second half of the 20th century.
The connecting of many elements into a coherent (and terrifying) perspective
He reads clearly, at a good speed and with a good voice. Excellent reader.
Makes one see the world in a different way
He does a great job of showing how the various people close to Kennedy interacted.
It's a compelling argument that is very plausible.
Solid and steady
I aud a lot of books.
There are a lot of interesting facts in this book. As a review of events surrounding the assassination of John Kennedy, it's a success. But as an indictment of LBJ, it falls very short. There are other books focused on LBJ that do a much better job.
To think how deep the corruption was back then and how many people died just to hid the truth of LBJ's arrogance.To learn that it ran so deep too... including Nixon, Ford, & Bush, just to name a few. Are we safe yet... who knows.
Very interesting totally worth the audible credit. Would recommend to anyone interested in JFK. Well read. Very very very good.
The best thing is that it's a "kitchen sink" collection of every political scandal from 1959 to 1974. If you want to know who stuffed a ballot box or hired a prostitute then this book is a decent info dump.But, like many others, I found many of Stone's "facts" to be circumstantial claims and speculation.
It is interesting how many of the players in the Bay of Pigs wound up involved in Watergate.The least interesting part is Stone's lack of a convincing argument. Since this is an audiobook I could not check sources, obviously, while driving, but I've read about a lot of these claims, and most ring hollow.
I did not have one.
No, not really. However, none of my criticism is directed at the narrator, who did an excellent job.
I kinda wish I had my money back.
A different look at the JFK conspiracy that will answer a few questions as well as ask them
JFK and the unspeakable is still the daddy for me
An easy to listen to voice so you don't miss much
A great listen that shows you just how bent politics was at this time Hoover LBJ the CIA the FBI even the Kennedy's it dose not miss anyone
