    I read this in the 80's and really thought it was well done. I was surprised it was not a book that found a spot in the news. Now more then 20 yrs later, it's in the news with the 50th anniv of Kennedy Assassination . Bring this book in an epub form - folks will be looking for it now that there is been a 2 hr TV doc on the topics cover in it.

    Highly Recommended - a must read

    This book was first published in 1992 and how it got by me without my knowledge I will never know. Nonetheless, I was led to read it after reading JFK/The Smoking Gun by Colin McLaren. This book is captivating; I couldn't put it down. The evidence presented by Howard Donahue is compelling. The reading got a little tedious sometimes because of so much factual information being presented, but it was so interesting I didn't care. If you want to know what really happened in Dallas on that fatal day in November of 1963, you have got to read this book! There was a conspiracy, but it's not what you think.
