Editorial Reviews

Noah Michael Levine delivers a powerful performance of Gaeton Fonzi’s magnificent nonfiction work The Last Investigation: A Former Federal Investigator Reveals the Conspiracy to Kill JFK. His melodious voice is a perfect complement to the powerful story. Fonzi, a journalist who was an investigator for the House Select Committee on Assassinations, questions the identity of the conspirators who brought forth the president’s death. As well, he reexamines the motives for the crime. What the American government has led us to believe is not the entire truth. Fonzi exposes the lies. This audiobook is considered to be the foremost text on the Kennedy assassination.

Publisher's Summary

Gaeton Fonzi's masterful retelling of his work investigating the Kennedy assassination for two Congressional committees is required listening for students of the assassination and the subsequent failure of the government to solve the crime. The Last Investigation is a compelling postmortem on the House Select Committee on Assassinations as well as a riveting account of Fonzi's pursuit of leads indicating involvement by officers of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Utmost Respect for Mr.Gaeton Fonzi

The author, comes across to me, as one of the most credible investigators of the murder of JFK. I would have absolutely loved to have met this man and listened to his wisdom. I remember the day I heard that our President was shot, and I saw Lee Harvey Oswald murdered that weekend, live on TV. Everyone I knew was weeping with intense sadness. It was a horrible day for our country. How could this happen in the great ole USA? And so, our generation had to live with this tragedy and then live with the lies our leaders told us about this event. Gaeton Fonzi has helped me tie up; many of the loose ends I had in my mind about that time in our history in a very credible and detailed book. For me the book is very interesting and it was hard to put it down. Gaeton was one of the true patriots of our day. Great book. Thank-you Audible for allowing the truth to be revealed through this book.

Important for JFK scholars

Fonzi gives us unprecedented insight into the House Special Committee on Assassinations and how agents of the Government kept the truth from coming out...yet again. God rest your soul, Mr. Fonzi.

Redundant

It is interesting in parts. Much too much about Cubans. Could have been far far shorter and more to the point.

Very well written!

A must read if interested in the JFK Assassination. I have read alot about the JFK assassination which made it easy to follow. But, if you are just getting interested in it then I suggest watching a few jfk assassination documentaries before starting "The Last Investigation". I can see where it could be difficult to decipher otherwise.

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

No

If you’ve listened to books by Gaeton Fonzi before, how does this one compare?

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

not sure

Did The Last Investigation inspire you to do anything?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Somehow disappointed about the Title.It is the author's last investigation, but not the JFK case.I am looking for Who killed JFK, Why and How?The author told me it is not LAH, maybe CIA, maybe LBJ, maybe...After reading this book, I did not know who, why & how, so I have to move on to look for more information from other books. But this book helped me to assure that it is a conspiracy.

Well... Talk about UNscientific speculation

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Well... Talk about UNscientific speculation<br/><br/>Very unscientific... very emotional... <br/><br/>I think this book has truths to it, but it's muddled in the annoying HIPPIE parts...

The hunt for the mysterious Maurice Bishop

Federal investigator Gaeton Fonzi gives us the inside story of the HSCA reinvestigation of the JFK assassination. This started out with such great hope and optimism that finally a true and proper enquiry would be carried out. Sadly it was not to be as almost before it began the political squabbles in Congress commenced. Chairman and prosecutors resigned, budgets were cut and the investigation itself was quietly nobbled. Mr Fonzi was responsible for the Mimi end of the enquiry which brought him into contact with many of the key players in the Cuban expat community. We follow the thrilling hunt and exposure of the CIA's mysterious Maurice Bishop subsequently identified as David Atlee Phillips. This is a really great book but some previous knowledge of the JFK assassination is required to get the maximum enjoyment out of the at times fast paced story. Superbly narrated once again by Mr Noah Michael Levine.
