Lost Crusader: The Secret Wars of CIA Director William Colby

I read about 100 pages of this book and i found it totally lacking in substance and written like a dictionary- dry and stale. After reading Blood road i was thoroughly dissapointed in Prados' book- though he had a boring story to work with in the first place.

Ultimate Sacrifice: John and Robert Kennedy, the Plan for a Coup in Cuba, and the Murder of JFK by Lamar Waldron
Ultimate Sacrifice: John and Robert Kennedy, the Plan for a Coup in Cuba, and the Murder of JFK

An extremely thought-provoking book on not just the assasination, but cold war operations as well, you can see why it took 17 years to write. The authors dot all the I's and cross the T's and weave a story that often leaves you wondering what might have been. They reveal the plot to overthrow Castro, as well as give revalations about the depth of the mafia's involvement in cuban operations. the most interesting point to me was Jack Ruby's name coming up about Cuba. Points are covered and cited with care. The book gives lots of background and some may find that tedious but I enjoyed it very much. Great Read for anyone who is interested in cold war or assasination for that matter.
