Synopsis

Strange Death of JFK The Men Who Murdered the President by Chris Lightbown

The vast literature generated by President John F. Kennedy's assassination in November 1963, and the search for who killed him, hinges on five uncontested facts: a) President Kennedy was shot at 12.30pm local time, in Dallas, Texas on 22 November 1963 while riding through the centre of Dallas in an open-top car. b) The Governor of Texas, John Connally, who was sitting in front of Kennedy, was wounded. c) Kennedy was automatically succeeded by his Vice-President, Lyndon Johnson. d) 80 minutes after the assassination, police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald, a 24-year-old Marxist ex-marine, for Kennedy's murder. e) Two days later, on Sunday 24 November, Oswald was shot dead while in police custody by Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner. These are almost the only facts everyone agrees about the assassination. To this day, many have expressed an opinion but nobody has conclusively proved who killed President Kennedy. The argument is between those who believe the official version - that Kennedy was murdered by Oswald - and those who believe that Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy. Chris Lightbown is an experienced investigative journalist who has worked for the SUNDAY TIMES, and his masterly book is the first to use the network of high-quality but unknown independent researchers whose conferences, internet sites, lectures and books have largely been ignored by the mainstream media. Lightbown's book is a brilliant piece of investigative reporting. It is also an utterly convincing and gripping narrative that provides the greatest clarity to the dark event that altered the 20th century.
