I bought this book because I knew who William Pitzer was and was generally aware of the possibly suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. The author has provided some useful background information, but beyond that he does little except site other secondary sources, many of which are controversial at best. There are no footnotes in a book that cries out for them. The few pages of 'Notes' at the end of the book are really a bibliography citing, again, numerous sources not necessarily trustworthy. There is a lack of scholarship, scholarship which could have made an interesting but at bottom futile exercise worthwhile.

At the time of this writing, the title/subtitle being shown for this book at Barnes & Noble is 'Without Smoking Gun: Investigating the Death of Lt. Cmdr. William Pitzer-A Victim of the JFK Assassination Conspiracy (period)'. I would like to note that this subtitle is incorrect. I am not unequivocally stating that LCDR Pitzer was murdered, nor that his death was connected to any other historical event. However, there are compelling reasons to suspect all of the above, and these are what you will find in my book. I must rate my book in order to submit these comments. I will give it four stars because I am very well pleased with it but withhold the fifth for reasons of modesty and also because I have not completely 'solved the case.' I think you will find it interesting and worthwhile.
