Overview

One of the most important original documents about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to be published on the 50th anniversary of the event. The never before published diary of Edward Jay Epstein’s investigation into the assassination reveals startling new details. Epstein, one of America’s most acclaimed investigative journalists and widely acknowledged as the premier expert on the assassination, while still an undergraduate at Cornell, interviewed the members of the Warren Commission and its staff of investigators, and obtained their key files. He was the only journalist, ever, to have gained this access. His full findings are disclosed here for the first time. In his investigation, Epstein also interviewed the top officials of the CIA, including at length the legendary chief of counter-intelligence James Jesus Angleton. He was the only journalist to interview Yuri Nosenko, the KGB officer who claimed to be Oswald’s KGB case officer. Jim Garrison, the New Orleans district attorney, who attempted to reopen the case, confided his methods and sources in Epstein. Epstein was, moreover, the last person to see George De Mohrenschildt, Oswald’s mysterious White Russian friend, who he interviewed for hours until the moment when he took his secrets with him in death. The JFK Assassination Diary is the true story at last of the incredible answers Epstein unearthed in pursuit of the greatest crime of the 20th century.

Praise for Edward Jay Epstein

"A grand figure of modern journalism…Show Epstein a juicy crime and he will show you how it has been subverted by unseen powers for their own agenda, by the inevitable incompetence of investigative authorities and by the media because it likes a simple story line.”
—Michael Wolff, USA Today

“Epstein believes that conspiracies are more common than most journalists credit; for much of his career, he has reveled in the kind of tantalizing clues that could lead somewhere, or nowhere.” —Joe Nocera, The New York Times

“Epstein is a bulldog researcher.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

“A brilliant investigator.” — Lou Dobbs

Praise For Agency of Fear

“Epstein tells all.”
—John Leonard, New York Times

“ Part detective story, part farce, part exposé, and part textbook on investigative reporting. It is ingenious, perverse, hilarious, and shocking.”
—Victor Navasky

“Exciting research, impressive thesis.”
—Norman Mailer

Praise For Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald

Editorial Reviews

Vanity Fair - James Wolcott
Edward Jay Epstein’s fascinating, star-studded, and spook-haunted Assassination Diary, which provides the backstage story to Epstein’s investigative odyssey in the reporting of his Assassination Chronicles trilogy—Inquest, Counterplot, and Legend—which features a cast that includes New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (a loose cannon who would be sanitized and sanctified into the quixotic hero of Oliver Stone’s JFK), Hannah Arendt, spymaster James Jesus A
USA Today - Michael Wolff
