Could it be? This well researched book sheds much needed new light on the Kennedy assassination.

This author could just as easily write a book asserting Neil Armstrong's moon walk was a hoax. Reads about as easily as a poorly written text book. Also, presumptions and assumptions abound. Very little credible evidence offered to support the premise. Lots of Warren Commission testimony excerpts that are interesting, however. But because Hoover and LBJ were politically supportive of one another, this one should fit well with the latest suggestion in Blood, Money and Power that LBJ ordered the assassination.

The author is an attorney and takes the scholar's approach to the subject, footnoting and sourcing all his material. The most damning portions of the work use FBI memos and other government materials to spell out that J Edgar Hoover failed to warn the Secret Service after learning of a plot on the life of President Kennedy. After Dallas, Hoover did all he could to obstruct the FBI investigation and used the powers of his office to frame Oswald. There is no doubt: This book documents Hoover was a traitor.

This book was by far one of the best books I've ever read. It brought the Kennedy Assassination to a whole new level. It was easy to understand, yet had amazing details. A must read!!
