Overview

President Kennedy's assassination has become the number-one murder mystery of the century - a mystery that continues to haunt the national consciousness and fuel an unrelenting search for answers thirty years after the crime. Now, for the first time in print, here are twelve stories that offer new evidence and shed more light on the theories that the president was the victim of a conspiracy - which most Americans believe - not simply of Oswald's malice, as the authorities would have us think. Bill Sloan, award-winning journalist and author of JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness, uncovers twelve of the best-kept tales from an assortment of individuals - ranging from average citizens to law enforcement officials - who were "overlooked" by the Warren Commission. Numerous accounts and conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination have been widely published in the past, but nothing like these compelling, and often harrowing, tales has been revealed before. These characters' stories help explain what has long been considered unexplainable:. Ed Hoffman saw the man who shot the president - and it wasn't Oswald - but was unable to communicate it to the authorities because he is deaf and mute. Jim Huggins, CIA hit man who received many of his orders directly from Joseph Kennedy, discloses information only he could know. There were four assassins: three he knew personally, two were CIA contract agents. Gary Cornwell, the former counsel for the House Select Committee who saw the classified information still withheld from the public, reveals how the FBI turned the investigation into "a joke, a farce, and a national disgrace." Ubiquitous conspiracy theories have made it difficult to separate the truth about JFK's assassination from the speculation. Now, finally, here are the first-hand accounts of eyewitnesses and other insiders who tell what they know - and what they've had to endure because of it.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As the 30th anniversary of JFK's assassination approaches, the books continue to multiply. This one isn't a necessary one, but there are a few good stories here, well told in a crisp journalistic manner (the author is a Dallas reporter). Sloan focuses on a dozen seldom-told tales that reveal credible aspects of the assassination, most of which are already familiar at least in part to buffs. Here is the deaf and dumb Ed Hoffman, who saw a man shoot from the grassy knoll but could not communicate what he witnessed; bystander Jim Tague, who was clipped by a flying splinter from a bullet the Warren Commission concluded did not exist; the couple, the Newmans, who heard shots from behind them on the knoll, and were never asked about them. There is also a hokey account from a former Secret Service agent of a Kremlin plot to kill the President, and an even weirder one by a so-called CIA ``hit man'' who identifies three of four shooters, including Frank Sturgis firing from a sewer grating on Elm Street. And there are pointless yarns, like the later violent deaths of two reporters who visited Jack Ruby's apartment. At his best, Sloan offers food for thought; at his worst, entertaining escapist speculation. Photos not seen by PW . (Oct.)
Library Journal
Former Texas journalist Sloan ( JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness , LJ 6/1/92) wants another full-scale investigation of JFK's assassination. Here he offers support for the conspiracy theory with stories from 12 people, ranging from the mildly interesting (eyewitnesses to the shooting, accounts from police officers, medical testimony) to the outlandish (a ``CIA hit man,'' a tale of a Soviet assassination squad) to the tangential (the stories of two reporters who died violently within ten months of visiting Jack Ruby's apartment after he killed Oswald). Sloan makes no effort to contrast or critique these accounts, which are often contradictory. This compilation will appeal more to conspiracy buffs than to a general audience. Not a necessary purchase for most libraries.-- Gregor A. Preston, Univ. of California Lib., Davis
