In his 2008 book The Commission, investigative journalist Philip Shenon gave us what remains the most authoritative look at U.S. government probes into the causes of the September 11th attacks. In A Cruel and Shocking Act, he delves into the previous hidden history of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Like its predecessor, this new book takes us into the deeply flawed inner workings of the commission charged with examining the tragedy. In this instance, however, the veteran former New York Times reporter goes even deeper, unearthing documents that the CIA, FBI, and others withheld and others that the Warren Commission simply ignored. A revelatory story bound to generate media buzz.
