Overview


Have you ever heard the story on the news of a politician being “found dead” or “committing suicide,” and it seemed a little strange to you? You think, “There’s something they’re not telling me.” Well, after you read Dead Wrong, you’ll realize that your instincts were correct. For years the government has put out hits on people that it finds “expendable” or who it felt were “talking too much.” David Wayne is here to show you that not only were these people murdered, but that it was done by our own government!

Find out how Marilyn Monroe was murdered, who really shot Martin Luther King Jr., and many other cover-ups throughout our country’s history. The extensive research and fact-checking done show how our government has taken matters into its own hands and has acted as though it were comprised of assassins plotting murder however they saw fit.

If you thought “big brother” was watching you, now realize that yes, you are being watched—and through the scope of a sniper rifle, at that. Dead Wrong will give you the straight facts on some of the most controversial cases this country has ever seen. You’ll quickly learn that what the government tells you is not always to be believed. It’s a scary truth, but it is a truth indeed.

    MOST INTERESTING BOOK I EVER READ

    This is literally the most interesting book that I have ever seen. I got to see an advance copy of it. There are many charts that contain fascinating information on why these so called suicides appear to be murders and also on why the official versions of the assassinations of the Kennedys and Martin Luther King are definitely incorrect. There is a great Timeline that details almost every minute of the last day of Marilyn Monroe. There is another totally fascinating Timeline for the last day of Doctor David Kelly. Doctor Kelly saw through the lies of the Iraq War and he tried to tell the world and had to be eliminated. They prove a lot and explain how the pieces of the puzzles fit together. Plus the forensic information and scientific details overwhelmingly support the authors claims of murder. I mean it when I say that I could not put this book down. I was totally enchanted by the excellent material and the incredibly logical and persuasive arguments. They also prove with facts that President Kennedy was killed by a conspiracy involving more than one assassin. And they really do prove it too. They prove the exact same thing on the assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy. On Martin Luther King they prove that the man who was convicted of the crime literally could not have been the killer. Amazing stuff. And it is all very factual and backed up by supporting evidence. After reading the information in this book there is no other conclusion that is logical except that Marilyn Monroe was murdered and that it is simply not even possible logically to conclude otherwise. I was honestly skeptical at first myself. But now I see it. They absolutely and totally prove it by taking it step by step medically as far as the actual evidence. It is absolutely amazing information. The other chapters are just as interesting. They prove each case with facts and do not even venture into the field of opinions. Vince Foster who was the White House attorney during President Clinton was also murdered. I never understood that case before but now I do. Get this book. I am dead serious and no pun intended. I am sure that you will find it as fascinating as I did. I am buying it for everyone I know! THAT IS HOW GOOD IT IS.

    I don't have any theories. All I have are the facts.

    The above quote is from the book and it tells you a lot about how serious their research was for this book. It is a quote by a former FBI special agent who was one of the sources for their research and it describes this book very well because they really just lay out all of the evidence and follow it no matter where it leads.

    I got to read a pre-release draft of this book and it is a very cool compilation of actual evidence. The cases are fascinating when you look at the real scientific facts. There is an amazing chart in the chapter on John F. Kennedy that absolutely PROVES that even one professional sniper could not have done the shooting that the government says that Oswald did. It is called SNIPER SNAPSHOT and it is worth getting the book just to see that.

    RUN, do not walk, to obtain this amazing book! Most impressive…absolutely essential!

    By Vince Palamara

    Having read literally thousands of books through the years, as well as being an accomplished author and researcher on my own terms, I feel I have literally “seen and heard it all”, especially with regard to the various prominent murder mysteries and political intrigue of our times. Well, let me tell you something: sometimes, in very rare circumstances, even I can still be amazed…and this awesome book “Dead Wrong” is just such a cause for celebration and wonder. Very well written and thought-provoking, Richard Belzer and David Wayne (and, in his own right, Jesse Ventura) wade through a mountain of facts and come out on the other side holding the unavoidable truth in the JFK, MLK, and RFK assassination cases, among others. Want me to give away details like alot of reviews appear to do these days? Sorry- read the book.

    RUN, do not walk, to obtain this amazing book! Most impressive…absolutely essential!

    Format was misaligned on the Nook Tablet.

    The fact that the format was lost on the Nook Tablet for this book did not help. However, the style of the writing itself was annoying. I found it to be disjointed with the same information being repeated over and over; very distracting and difficult to follow. I really didn't learn anything very new from 'Dead Wrong'.

    Interesting Stuff but not an easy read on Nook

    The content of the book is actually quite interesting and it did not take long to breeze through the book. Loaded with scary facts about infamous cover-ups. My only complaint is that the book does not transfer well into Nook. There are several areas that the text is too small to read and when you increase the text size with the NOOk features, the last few lines of that particular page disappear instead of being displayed on the following page. Additionally, I have to wonder who edited this book for typos, grammar, etc. as it is literally loaded with mistakes. Words are spelled incorrectly, and whole sentences seem to be repeated in a few sections. If that doesn't bother you then definitely buy it for the content. That just so happens to really bother me when I am reading. The citations are also somewhat awkward because they follow sections or chapters instead of being at the end of the book. So you thumb through several pages of them before you get to the next chapter. This may not be as difficult to deal with in a printed book, but it is annoying on the NOOK.

    This book itself is very interesting and informative, but it is not formatted properly for the Nook. The author uses a lot of text boxes and inserted comments that just do not transfer to the e-reader, and many sentences are cut off from the rest of their paragraphs.

    If you want the facts, not fiction, this is IT !!

    Just finished and really gave me new food for thought. I knew all of the cases were murder, but did enjoy new way of thinking about reasons why they were commited. I don't think anyone will ever be charged, let alone prosecuted for these crimes. All evidence and witnesses will be "lost" to future generations who might decide to look further into the cases. So sad.....
