This classic, highly readable overview of the Kennedy assassination has been heavily rewritten and revised to incorporate new information released in light of the Assassination Record Review Board's investigation.
NOT IN YOUR LIFETIME "Deserves to be read & taken seriously by all those who care about truth or justice." Prof. Robert Blakey, former Chief Counsel of the House Select Committee on Assassination.
Writing about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Summers rejected the findings of the Warren Commission, claiming that Kennedy was killed by a right-wing conspiracy that could have included major organized crime figures, such as Johnny Roselli, Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante & Sam Giancana. Other figures possibly involved included David Ferrie, Gerry Patrick Hemming, Guy Bannister & E. Howard Hunt.
