Overview


Carroll and Graf has been in the forefront of producing books about the Kennedy assassination. It has come up with a winner in this mammoth study of one of the most mysterious figures on the fringes of the assassination: Richard Case Nagell, described as the man 'hired to kill Oswald and prevent the assassination of JFK.' On the fourtieth anniversary of the JFK assassination, this amazing story has been revised and expanded with a decade's worth of new classified information. Nagell's own death in 1995 was suspicious. Here, freelance investigative journalist Dick Russell delves deep into Nagell's strange past, revealing that Nagell had been a contact for both the CIA and KGB at different times. The author's detailed and expert reconstruction of historic events will have readers wonder and question new possible leads never before imagined in this still unsolved murder.
