Oliver Stone

"Considering her proximity as an eyewitness in Dealey Plaza, her insider knowledge of the Dallas police, and her treatment by federal authorities, Jean Hill may well be the most important assassination witness alive today. Her story deserves close scrutiny by every citizen."
Jim Marrs, author of Crossfire

"Jean Hill is the one constant factor in the whole assassination story. She's a genuine patriot and her story is what America is all about."
Jim Garrison, former New Orleans district attorney

"Her tale is often engaging . . . the feisty schoolteacher emerges ultimately as something of a folk heroine." -Publishers Weekly

JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness is the gripping story of Jean Hill's incredible ordeal which began when she saw a gunman on the famous grassy knoll fire the shot that exploded the president's skull. That sunny, November, Dallas day turned into calamity. The country would never forget, and neither would Jean Hill.

Working as a key consultant on the Oliver Stone film JFK, Hill was inspired to finally tell her full story. In JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness, we learn about Hill's years of death threats, official intimidation, and harassment by the F.B.I. and the Warren Commission. In this highly personal story, Hill reveals her furtive romance with a married Dallas police officer in the presidential motorcade, and her struggle to keep her sanity, her career, and her life together as a single mother of two children while being caught up in the greatest murder mystery of the century.
