Overview

“These Cuban files [on the Kennedy assassination] add new pieces to the puzzle and give us a clearer picture of what really happened.” Oliver Stone, director of "JFK."

Amid continuing speculation over Cuban involvement in the most famous political crime of the 20th century, this book reveals for the first time Cuba’s own report into the Kennedy assassination. With compelling logic, Fabián Escalante, who directed Cuba’s investigation, describes how Cuban intelligence uncovered a conspiracy against President Kennedy among those who felt betrayed by the Bay of Pigs debacle: the Cuban exiles, the Mafia, and the CIA.

Fabián Escalante is a former head of Cuban counterintelligence and a respected and sought-after authority by US researchers on CIA activities against Cuba.
