'It might not be in your lifetime,' said the Chief Justice of the United States when asked whether the files on the assassination of President Kennedy would be made public. If the President was killed by a lone gunman, as the first official enquiry claimed, why can we still not see all relevant records?
Fifty years on and the murder of the century remains unsolved. Drawing on 30 years of investigation, Anthony Summers examines the case in compelling, forensic detail. He analyses the evidence for Oswald's guilt, the Mafia connection, and the links to Cuba and reveals, for the first time, a plausible admission of involvement.

Being that this is a revision of an older work, it could've become something better than "Conspiracy" was. It is a better work, but it breaks no new ground. This might be a good book for someone who knows little about the case who needs introduction.
This is the fourth book on the Kennedy assassination I have read (or in this case, had read to me) and despite also watching just about every documentary I could lay my hands on only now do I feel like I know all the facts and am able to make an educated assessment of the events of that faithful day in Dallas.
Books reviews aren't really my thing but I'll go ahead and say that if you have an interest in the JFK assassination and have your own theories but don't really know all the facts then I cannot recommend this book enough. One of the few that doesn't seem to have an agenda.
On a side note I'm gonna miss the narrator now it's over.
"i hang my head in shame"
if even half of this seemingly well evidenced story is true, then everything I've grown up to believe in is a lie. the narrator keeps you spell bound as he reveals the unbelievable. the death of jfk caused my mum to go into premature labour and both she and i nearly died ...so the story of jfk is tied to my personal history. avoid this book at your peril ... it is a MUST read.
Poor investigation, not presenting all facts, defending Blaky and it's committee. No historical value. Disappointing end of a complicated story.
Loved it'~thought provoking, sad, informative and challenging. Leaves so many questions and anger that public bodies act intheir best interests and not the people's.
Would recommend this in a heartbeat.
"Clear, concise. A must listen."
Brilliantly narrated. It's an engrossing listen. Having read and listened to many JFK assassination books this stands at the top with only a select few. Amazing research on the part of the author. Do Not Miss This Classic.
