Publisher's Summary

November 22, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the tragedy that has haunted America ever since. For the first time, this concise and compelling book pierces the veil of secrecy to fully document the small, tightly-held conspiracy that killed President John F. Kennedy. It explains why he was murdered, and how it was done in a way that forced many records to remain secret for almost 50 years.

The Hidden History of the JFK Assassination draws on exclusive interviews with more than two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, in addition to former FBI, Secret Service, military intelligence, and Congressional personnel, who provided critical first-hand information. The book also uses government files - including the detailed FBI confession of notorious Mafia godfather Carlos Marcello - to simply and clearly reveal exactly who killed JFK. Using information never published before, the book uses Marcello's own words to his closest associates to describe the plot.

This book builds on the work of the last Congressional committee to investigate JFK's murder, which concluded that JFK "was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy," and that godfathers "[Santo] Trafficante [and Carlos] Marcello had the motive, means, and opportunity to assassinate President Kennedy."

Tedious, redundant and speculative

OK, I finished the book after almost giving up on it at least a half dozen times. But, it was tough going and quite tedious.
The positives: It offers up some interesting theories and provides some new, to me, information.
The negatives: In my opinion, it seems like a number of related short stories/papers were thrown together to create this book; it struck me as very redundant. Also, my opinion is the author speculates far too much and then draws very broad conclusions ( I quickly lost track of the number of times he said "possibly, could have been, perhaps, might have, etc, etc).
After reading many books on the subject, I do believe Oswald did not act alone and the facts surrounding the assassination have yet to be disclosed. It seems incredible that after 56 years there are still so many unanswered questions. To this authors credit, he tries to provide answers. However, to me they were not convincing.

Well Researched Material

This book is well worth the listen! It fills in previously unknown details and people to not only to JFK's murder, but to other connected events of the last 50 years.

Quite possibly the definitive book on the subject.

Whenever I recommend a book on the JFK assassination to someone, this is it.

Takes all of the facts and credible theories out there, and shapes them into a comprehensive account of what happened.

At the same time, it's great for long-time students of the assassination, as it offers many pieces of information I haven't read elsewhere.

Reader does a great job, and the only thing I have left to say is it's well worth the credit.

Very organized and detailed. Good references and at times seems like I was right there in the middle of the story.

Great work of Fiction: Poor Lamar Slaving...

The Kennedy Show Continues in 2013. Joe Kennedy, Ambassador to UK, was a bootlegger. Not much different from Carlos Marcello. You could could say they were were cut from the same cloth. He's also ran RKO Studios. He could have easily directed the fake assassination filmed by Zapruder. It came to a point for the retirement of his son, John F. Kennedy who suffered from Atkinsons Disease. Jack eventually perished in 1968. So, naturally he wouldn't ever make it for a 2nd term. Jack Kennedy had hyper publicity that he was a horny Irishman. He wanted to live out his last years in love w/ Lem Billings.

The Mafia he's so tuned in on could never carry out a Presidential hit. They couldn't even kill Fidel Castro. The real people who could pull this off were Otto Skorzeny, CIA, who kidnapped Miklos Horthy's son to get him to resign in Hungary in 1944. Though @ 53 years of age he could could kidnap anybody in 1961. Otto Skorzeny's suggestion was rejected by Kennedy to kidnap Fidel Castro in 1961 saving the Bay of Pigs Fiasco & mobilization of the US Army for an invasion of Cuba. For Lamar Waldron, Pure BS.
