Publisher's Summary

For half a century, people have debated the Kennedy assassination. Some claim that the Warren Commission got it right - that Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone-nut assassin. Others contend that Kennedy was killed as part of a conspiracy.

It is not the purpose of this book to engage in that debate. The purpose of this book is simply to focus on what happened at Bethesda Naval Hospital on the evening of November 22, 1963. What happened that night is so unusual that it cries out for truthful explanation even after all these years.

In this book you will learn that:

1. Kennedy's body was actually delivered to the Bethesda morgue twice, at separate times and in separate caskets.

2. Some photographs and X-rays from the autopsy went missing from the record, and other photographs in the record were forged or otherwise fraudulent.

3. The president's body was altered by tampering with the wounds before the autopsy took place.

And much more.

It's like you're in the thick of it.

What made the experience of listening to The Kennedy Autopsy the most enjoyable?

Kevin Pierce does an excellent job with the material. The authoritative voice gives weight to the facts being presented.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I was taken aback at the amount of inconsistency in the handling of Kennedy's body. I'm mainly a lover of history and not so much conspiracy theories. But this book, written by Hornberger backs up the data with references and court transcripts. Also, I did not know that Oliver Stone's movie "JFK" had such an impact of the public outcry for information that it actually inspired policy. I also did not know that there was a standoff between the secret service and medical examiners on how the body should have an autopsy.

This book puts you in the thick of it. And it is a fascinating thing to listen to.

A thorough look at the medical evidence!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great listen. Clearly lays out all the factual evidence available as well as different potential scenarios and explanations.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kennedy Autopsy?

The most memorable moment was when the author put together a potential scenario that would fit with the evidence available. Nothing near to what we've been taught about JFK's death.

What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Kevin Pierce nails this narration with just the right combination of authority, amazement, and wonder at what the evidence points to. I will definitely look for additional books narrated by Kevin Pierce.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Occam's razor states that the simplest answer is most likely the correct one. In reading this book I was amazed at the simple answer that the evidence indicates. When the author spelled it out, it just made sense.

The Kennedy autopsy

For half a century, people have debated the Kennedy assassination. Some claim that the Warren Commission got it right - that Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, a lone-nut assassin. Others contend that Kennedy was killed as part of a conspiracy. It is not the purpose of this book to engage in that debate. The purpose of this book is simply to focus on what happened at Bethesda Naval Hospital on the evening of November 22, 1963. What happened that night is so unusual that it cries out for truthful explanation even after all these years. In this book you will learn that: 1. Kennedy's body was actually delivered to the Bethesda morgue twice, at separate times and in separate caskets. 2. Some photographs and X-rays from the autopsy went missing from the record, and other photographs in the record were forged or otherwise fraudulent. 3. The president's body was altered by tampering with the wounds before the autopsy took place. And much more.

When I first saw this book, I was drawn in by the subject matter, as I always am with books involving this terrible event. I think that, especially for those who remember that day, any book involving those events is bound to be fascinating, whether one agrees with its conclusions or not. For me, November 22, 1963 and September 11, 2001 have been burned into my memory so deeply that they have become an integral part of my very make-up. So, though I didn’t expect to have the entire truth revealed, and hoped I wouldn’t read fantasy disguised as truth, I set my own ideas aside as much as possible, and read with as open a mind as I could manage.

I was pleasantly surprised, too, because the author presents a well developed and carefully researched scenario, and one that, in fact, raises more questions than it answers. He also makes a very convincing case for his conclusions, and, though my own view is that we may never learn the entire truth of the events surrounding, and the motivations that sparked the assassination of President Kennedy, such endeavors do shed light on what happened, and do present some possible, if barely plausible, answers to some of the many unanswered questions.
The narrator did his usual excellent job, and his performance of this book was as impeccable as has been everything I have ever listened to him narrate.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and the narrator 5 out of 5 stars.

Conspiracy

I was 13 when JFK was killed, and will forever renember that day. My innocence and the country's was shattered mournfully! for years I have been absorbed in the reason why he was assassinated. it wasn't until 1975 when Hiraldo Rivers showed the Zapruder film and Oliver Stone's film that I truly believe there the American people have been lied to! Thanks to this author and others who have been brace enough to challenge the system's lie to the American people of his death. A conspiracy exists to shun the ugly truth of our internal enemy's agenda!

Wow, no wonder people thinks it was a cover-up!

I have always thought LBJ was neck deep in the assassination of JFK, and now I'm even more convinced. This book, which is meticulously researched, citing first person accounts and documentary evidence, shows the swirling evidence cover-up by various agencies and people, from the hopital in Dallas that fateful day, to the strange decision to have military doctors perform the autopsy in Bethesda Naval Hospital, under the watchful eyes of senior military officers and men in black suits, who seemed to steer what conclusions were reached. there was a coffin switch, the timeline is very different than the official story, and the wounds indicate more than one shooter. I can see why so many people dont trust anything the government has to say about this, since it is obvious so many lies have been told since day one. Kevin Pierce does a great job narrating, highlighting the really important sections, and bringing the interviews to life. Anyone interested in what really happened on that day in Dallas in 1963 should get this book.

I was given this audiobook by the narrator in return for an honest review through audiobookblast dot com.

Intriguing premise;

Would you consider the audio edition of The Kennedy Autopsy to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The plausibility of there having been a conspiracy.

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

I like the way he was able to take relatively dry stuff and make it easy to take.

If you could give The Kennedy Autopsy a new subtitle, what would it be?

More Than Meets the Eye

Any additional comments?

In 1963, I was a Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, working as an all-source intelligence analyst with the Defense Intelligence Agency at the Production Center on the second floor of "B" Building at Arlington Hall Station, Virginia. Two of my colleagues, Tom Mumford and Brad Veek, also U.S. Navy Lieutenants, had become close buddies. Tom worked on Southeast Asia matters; Brad and I worked on Soviet matters.

Many days we had lunch together at the Officers’ Club on the station. A frequent topic of chatter among us was what we considered to be the sheer incompetence of our Commander-in-Chief, President John F. Kennedy. I won’t go into specific details because they are irrelevant now. Suffice it to say, we all agreed that Kennedy was wreaking havoc in our respective areas of responsibility. Our consensus was that somebody should get to Kennedy and get him to stop what he was doing. Jokingly, one of us (I don’t remember who) said somebody should take him out. But, emphatically, and most certainly, we did not seriously mean that somebody should get him to stop by actually shooting him. Things like that might happen in some other country, but not here, in the United States; no way!

Sometime between 1:30 and 2:00 p.m. on Friday, November 22, 1963, my two buddies and I were taking an extended lunch break over a few beers at the O’Club (it was Friday, after all) when people started running around talking excitedly. As soon as we found out that the hubbub was caused by the news that President Kennedy had been shot in Dallas, Texas, we were absolutely stunned. Almost as one, the three of us said, “Oh, Shit!” We thought the Soviets had successfully conspired to do it. Then we thought about what we had been saying in a place where anybody could have overheard us. The next thing we thought would happen would be our being dragged out of the O’Club in handcuffs and forcibly interrogated for “our part” in the conspiracy. Very deflated, we left our unfinished beers on the table and went home, looking over our shoulders to see if we were being tailed. As it turned out, we didn’t have to worry, but we still did. We also learned a lesson about cheap chatter and the possible fall-out from it. We never talked like that again.

Flashing forward to the present, author, Jacob Hornberger, in The Kennedy Autopsy, details the significant inconsistencies in the records and testimonies of witnesses and participants in activities relating to Kennedy’s assassination. What he says seems to make a good case that there was some sort of conspiratorial effort that resulted in the death by shooting of the President. That part of his conclusion that addresses “The National Security State” and its possible involvement grates on me. Call me naive if you want, but I never felt like such a State existed; at least, not during the time I actively served in the Intelligence Community.

The narrator, Kevin Pierce, has taken a well-written work and turned it into a gripping aural tale. His skill in storytelling is evident throughout the presentation. I rate this audiobook a 5-Star on content and a 5-Star on the narrator’s delivery. On both these counts, I highly recommend you get this audiobook.

Kennedy autopsy

Well narrated and very easy to follow what was really a complicated cover up. This book for me erased any doubt there was a cover up.

ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING AND FRIGHTENING

Two caskets, two autopsies, two brains? This listen gives one so much to think about. Over 50 years and we still do not have all of the answers~were this horrific part of our history to happen with today's technology, I believe the coverup would be much harder to perpetrate. I got really tired of the many "I do not recall" or " I do not remember"~so unbelievable since anyone alive during that awful day in Dallas remembers events minute by minute. Very well written and expertly narrated. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the Kennedy assassination, the aftermath, and the untruths told to the American people.

Audiobook provided for an honest review....

"Some sort of horror story that was real."

I was in my late teens when the news of President Kennedy's assassination rocked the world. It felt as devastating at the time as 9/11 did almost 40 years later. Surely this wasn't possible in America? And, in the aftermath, increasingly it felt that something was wrong with the facts presented and the secrecy surrounding the evidence of the death of that much loved man. All sorts of conspiracy theories were muted, not least that of a second shooter on the 'grassy knoll ', the unexpected deaths of many who had any closer knowledge of events of that day, and the locking up of statements and evidence made to the Warren Commission for 75 years, too far in the future for almost anyone who might have had an interest to be long gone - myself included.

So this book was an excellent presentation of, not vague theories but statements of people who were actually present at the time of the body's journey from the hospital which received Kennedy's body immediately after the shooting through to that where the autopsy (s?) was conducted, with alternate suggestions of what occurred where needed. With two main sections, that of the multiple coffin scenario, and the strange 'magic bullet' suggestion, covered with fascinating clarity, the book is completed with documents quoted in appendices A and B. There are, naturally, repetitions in places where scenarios overlap but This is usually helpful to refresh the reader's memory in the face of such bizarre events.
This fascinating book was narrated with clarity and expertise by Kevin Pierce.

Enjoyable is not really the correct term, given the subject matter, but so much I had not previously known has helped to clarify my thoughts of this tragic time. How different the world might have been had Kennedy lived to complete his term of office and a second one, a far safer and equitable world for us all. So my thanks to FABC for making The Kennedy Autopsy a freely available complimentary download to anyone requesting it, and the rights holder who made this possible.
Highly recommended to everyone who has an interest in the politics of power, the recent history of the U.S.of A as well as a strange, almost unbelievable mystery murder thriller.

A Most Commendable Introduction to the Facts

The Kennedy Autopsy provides the listener with an eminently sensible and very well structured introduction to a subject rife with conjecture, ludicrous speculation and controversy.

It is high time that we begin to confront the truth (and our own worst fears) and finally accept that the United States of America was subject to an internally organised coup at the highest levels of government in November 1963.

Approach this excellent audiobook with an open mind and finally be convinced that the Warren Commission had already determined its own unbelievable findings prior to the commencement of any witness testimony.

Only the truth shall set you free.
