Mortal Error

( 2 )

Overview

In 1967, a Baltimore man named Howard Donahue began investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Like countless Americans, Donahue was fascinated by the events in Dallas. But what separated him from other amateur sleuths, and even the Warren Commission experts, was a lifetime's experience with guns and ballistics. In the years ahead, these two attributes, plus bulldoglike tenacity, would carry Donahue on a spellbinding journey back to that tragic day in 1963. Thanks to his understanding of ...

Overview

In 1967, a Baltimore man named Howard Donahue began investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Like countless Americans, Donahue was fascinated by the events in Dallas. But what separated him from other amateur sleuths, and even the Warren Commission experts, was a lifetime's experience with guns and ballistics. In the years ahead, these two attributes, plus bulldoglike tenacity, would carry Donahue on a spellbinding journey back to that tragic day in 1963. Thanks to his understanding of ballistics--and some remarkable luck--Donahue was able to spot discrepancies in the evidence that had been missed both by the Warren Commission experts and by critics of the Commission's Report. So he kept digging, trying to understand. And finally Donahue pieced together the facts and came to a shocking conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald could not have fired the shot that shattered Kennedy's skull, and, in Donahue's judgment, only one other person could have. He was convinced he knew who pulled the trigger, and why this savage irony had remained buried for so long. In Mortal Error, Bonar Menninger chronicles Donahue's twenty-five-year investigation of President Kennedy's death and the stunning revelation it led him to. In crisp, rapid-fire prose, Menninger relates one of the greatest true-life detective stories ever told. More important, he offers solutions to questions that have haunted America for nearly thirty years.

The international bestseller that reveals the real cover-up in the Kennedy assassination. When CBS News asked ballistics expert Howard Donahue to participate in a re-enactment of the JFK assassination, the startling results raised questions which dispute key elements in the Warren Commission's thesis.

    This Makes Sense- Finally

    Being a Kennedy buff, like many, I have read everything I can get my hands on regarding his death. A neighbor turned me onto this book and after having completed, finally feel satisfied I know the truth. Clear balistic and scientific forensic work leave the conclusions drawn to be the most believable and substantiated of all the theories. It also, while tragic, explains why the government has taken the position they have- and helps to explain the ridiculous findings originally arrived at.
