Publisher's Summary

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.

Compelling case for each, super repetitive

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.

This Book is "DEAD ON"

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...

Amateurish and repetitive writing

What would have made Dead Wrong better?

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."

What was most disappointing about Richard Belzer and David Wayne ’s story?

They took interesting facts and wrote them in the most hacky way possible. Truly poor writing.

Great content, poorly written

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

Reveals many things that are important to know.

Love this book

What did you love best about Dead Wrong?

One the best I've read. Didn't want it end. So much knowledge in one book. Genius

Who was your favorite character and why?

Always JFK

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He did great job

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Marylyn's death. So many mistakes were made and still a sucide. Sad

Any additional comments?

A+++

Starts strong, trails off

The narration was rather strange. It started strong, but towards the end it just felt like they were padding the book for length. Ends with talking about being an American patriot, right after it covered a British conspiracy. Strange. Though to be fair, by the end I was having trouble finishing the book.
Probably would not recommend. There are much better books out there on the same subject

Assuming the evidence presented here is true...

... there's a case to be made the official version of these stories aren't true. Most of the evidence here has to do with forensics and logistics -- paths of bullets, location of alleged killers, etc. Not, well, the CIA obviously had reason to kill that person, so they did. In other words, it's more about the how rather than the why. So if the official versions of how these murders took place is wrong, you have to wonder why. Cover ups? Incompetence? Or perhaps there is a valid reason how, for example, a person below someone can shoot him (as in the case of Dr. King) and yet the path of the bullet makes it appear as though the shot came from above.

I can't say this changed my mind about anything, but I can't find fault with the authors. Feels like they did their homework. The problem is their arguments could be presented in a much shorter book. Frankly, I learned just as much about the speculation that James Earl Ray wasn't MLK's killer from a handful of articles at The Washington Post and The New York Times as I did here -- and that took me a few minutes, as opposed to what seemed like at least an hour of this audiobook. And that applies to every case.

As for the narration, while the actors are fine, each case uses multiple narrators. It would have been so much better to use one narrator for one case. This format interrupts the flow and each time the narrator changed, I had to remind myself that they were just changing narrators, not moving on to the next case.

Lastly, I have to say, my guess is a conspiracy-minded person would love this, so take this skeptic's review with a grain of salt.

Horrible

Just a bunch of non sense. Buy a potato and listen to it and you’ll enjoy that better than this trash.

A really interesting book

Thoroughly researched and full of compelling evidence. Having read a few “conspiracy theory” type books, I found this one particularly persuasive with facts and evidence I had not experienced before.

Definitely wrong.

I found the story repetitive, the same facts repeated several times, narrators reading was flat.

Fantastic!

Another fantastic must by Richard Belzer, much appreciated the details and in depth look at these famous figure's deaths and circumstances. Things are never as they seem. Great work. Ice T was a nice addition.
