I have read numerous books on the assassination and found each to be interesting, but not always factual. "The Girl on the Stairs" is different. I never heard about Victoria Adams, the "girl" of the title, and that's because she was so effectively discarded by the Warren Commission in 1964 that few were aware of her name, let alone what she did. Apparently that was the intention. The author was bothered by what little he did learn about Ms. Adams, and so he went in search of her. "The Girl" is his fascinating and very objective personal journey over 35 years to not only find this woman, but to log almost like a diary the discoveries he made along the way. He tells us that at first he believed the Warren Report. But as we follow him through the witnesses of Dallas and the documents of the National Archives, he becomes less convinced, just as the reader does right beside him. There are no crackpot theories here. These are facts. And when he finds Ms. Adams, her truth is finally released and we feel the better for it. This is a wonderful story, a page turner in its own right, the vindication of a woman scorned for too long. The value far exceeds its price. We need more books like this when it comes to this subject. And the other reviewer who thinks the Bugliosi book solves the riddle? LOL That is funny. First, Bugliosi is not even aware of the new evidence presented in Mr. Ernest's book, corroborative evidence which proves the story of Miss Adams. Second, Bugliosi bases his entire dismissal of Miss Adams on what the Warren Report said, which has now been shown to be wrong on this matter. And third, you should know that it is Bugliosi who actually makes the statement that Miss Adams may have been a shooter. He writes on page 832 of his book regarding that ridiculous idea, "Why not? Women can pull triggers too, you know." His book is a prosecutator's brief filled with factual errors and misinformation designed to sway the opinions of those who simply do not know the evidence. Sorry you were one of the dupes.

Mr. Ernest has written a fine book, but the event upon which the book is based is explained away by Vincent Bugliosi in his book Reclaiming History (2007) published by Norton and Company. Since the assassination I have been an advocate of a conspiracy. After reading and studying "Reclaiming History" ALL my doubts have been erased. Mr. Bugliosi clearly explains away conspiracy theories to my satisfaction through his extremely thorough research and presentation.
