Publisher's Summary

'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.

A good starter on assassination who's who

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.

Definitive

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.

not in your lifetime...

i like that all theories are presented and each in its own shell, leaving me to draw my own conclusions. the amount of research is awesome and leaves me amazed. my only glitch is in the editing where the same sentence is often repeated twice, and other edits are very sharp making the reader sound a bit robotic. but dont let the edit glitching put you off, this is a thorough and informative book.

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.

An average listen at best

Personally for me, this audible book focuses on nearly every theory that could of occurred in the conspiracy of JFK's death. I did not enjoy the book as I do not believe Cuba or the mafia had any involvement in his death. If you are still undecided on who you may believe was involved in the death or it is your first audible book on this theory then you may enjoy. If like me you have read other books and watched various documentaries then I would avoid it.

2013 review and study of the JFK Assassination

This book is a sort of updated 2013 equivalent of Sylvia Meagher's famous 1967 book "Accessories after the fact" It is however not nearly as comprehensive and Anthony Summer's book lacks the tenacious bite of Mrs Meagher's fantastic original work.
Anthony Summers is no Sylvia Meagher.

That said this is a worthy enough book which plots its well evidenced way through the majority of the storyline. The Oswald alleged visit to Mexico part is very well researched and explained. The author very much sticks with the known facts and avoids outlandish theories. Disappointingly there is nothing about the curious goings on re the JFK medical evidence or the Zapruder film.

This book is very professionally and well narrated although I must confess I did miss Noah Michael Levine from Accessories after the fact.

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.

Mediocre

Poor investigation, not presenting all facts, defending Blaky and it's committee. No historical value. Disappointing end of a complicated story.
