This new look at the culprits in the assassination of JFK "brings an astonishing amount of information to light" (Publishers Weekly). Former New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison remains the only person ever to have indicted a suspect in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In this fascinating book, writer and professor Joan Mellen conducted her own interviews with witnesses and combed through thousands of previously inaccessible documents to revisit his maligned investigation. What Mellen found was clear evidence that the Warren Report, Garrison's bone of contention, wrongly claimed Lee Harvey Oswald was a known Marxist who planned the murder on his own. In fact, as Garrison argued, Oswald's ties to the CIA, the FBI, as well as US Customs, point to a conspiracy that reached the highest levels of US government. The author details Garrison's suspicions about several other suspects, including New Orleans businessman Clay Shaw, CIA operative David Ferrie, and others, leading to the grim conclusion that long before Nov. 22, 1963, America's own intelligence agencies were involved in both the murder of the beloved young president and its cover-up.
