Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives.” —Vanity Fair

“Waldron and Hartmann offer convincing evidence . . . A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the US’s most personal tragedies.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I believe Waldron's heavy-to-lift book is actually all but the last word on these troubling assassinations which have been so wildly speculated about since 1963 . . . Lamar Waldron, indefatigable public servant and author deserves his own Pulitzer Prize for his great work.” —Liz Smith, New York Post

“They’ve done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory.” —Ron Rosenbaum

“Staggering!” —Mark Crispin Miller

“Exhaustively researched” —New York Observer

“[Legacy of Secrecy contains] over 800 pages of intricately documented data. Their findings add pieces to one of our most perplexing puzzles, and suggest where the key missing pieces may be found.” —Ronald Goldfarb, Daily Beast

This is a brilliant 5-star book that surpasses all the previous books about the assassination of JFK (and also about Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King). And that puts this book at the head of a very big library indeed. The research is exhaustive, and leaves the readr convinced about the primary role of the Mafiosi: Carlos Marcello (New Orleans), Santos Trafficante (Tampa), and Johnny Roselli (Chicago) - with the collusion of the CIA, FBI, and blessings of Hoover - in the plot to get rid of the president - so that his brother, Robert, would no longer have the power to interfere with (let alone damage) the power of the Mafia. The cast of characters is very large (I made a spreadsheet so I could remind myself of all the interconnections among the key players)and the book is long - and takes a bit of perseverance to see it through to the finish. But the task is well worth the effort. What we always felt about the shots coming from the grassy knoll (and not from Oswald) and about the cover-up staged by the Warren Commission - emerge as all too true. Scary to think our wonderful country could descend to such skulduggery. I'd feel better if the New York Times had the "cojones" to acknowledge the truths in this book, but I am getting on in years and I don't think I'll live to see that. Maybe my gradnkids.

This is the only book one needs to read to know once and for all the truth about the Kennedy assassinations the murder of Martin Luther King Jr and the reality behind the Bay of Pigs fiasco. Meticulously documented and well-written, this book is also extremely depressing. The tragedy of prejudice and sheer hatred and greed that existed then is still with us today. This book makes that apparently so even if that was not the authors intent. Having read many books on this and related subjects as I have sought answers to these tragedies ever since that grey November day as I sat in my fifth grade classroom after recess when our principal came over the P.A.a to announce that the president had been shot and killed, this book confirms much of what I came to believe occurred. Anyone who still chooses to believe that pack of lies and missing information known as the Warren Report after reading this book is either delusional, stupid, or both.

when it came around to shutting up DA Garrison.After JFK's assasination, the media shut him up not allowing his investigation to be out in the public.Ultimately,I came to a grim conclusion that this author needs to write another book about LBJ prior to being in the 1960 presidential race.

But not necessarily with the right conclusion. Includes much interesting newly available information that would take one many years to find and put together on one's own. On this topic, however, it is virtually impossible to know which of the available dots that can be connected are actually relevant and which irrelevant. The authors have done a good job finding a lot of new dots. Whether the correct solution to this puzzle has or has not been put together in this book is a highly complex issue that perhaps no one is competent to judge.
