Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

UPDATED WITH DRAMATIC NEW REVELATIONS! The trade paperback has three new chapters, an expanded photo-document section, and updated text throughout, including the completed story of how three powerful Mafia bosses used John and Robert Kennedyand#8217;s top-secret plan of staging a coup against Fidel Castro to murder JFK. Documented from the National Archives for the first time is Watergate burglar Bernard Barker's decades-long work for the Mafia, even Barkerand#8217;s time aiding the CIA with the coup plan. Barker sold out the coup plan to his mob bosses helping to assassinate JFK, and forcing US officials previously involved with Barker to withhold key information from the Warren Commission. This cloud of secrecy surrounding JFKand#8217;s assassination allowed two men who confessed to playing roles in JFK's murder to be free and aid in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. The trade paperback also contains important new information about the FBI informant who obtained the JFK assassination confession of godfather Carlos Marcello, which the Bureau kept secret for twenty years.

Book News Annotation:

Bulldog historian of the November 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, Waldron argues that the decades-long coverup was intended not so much to protect the killers, but to maintain the secrecy of a US agent planted in the Cuban military, and the associated coup plot. The first edition, which seems to have been published in 2005 or 2006, tracks people and events from the assassination to the Watergate affair where many of the key players appeared again. This second edition draws on material recently released from the US National Archives to add chapters on Cuban American Watergate burglar Bernard Barker and his role in the Mafia, the CIA, and secret White House operations during the intervening years.

Synopsis:

This work reveals the attempts by Robert Kennedy to expose John F. Kennedy's killers--attempts that led to RFK's own murder. Interviews and newly declassified files document how three mob bosses and a few CIA operatives were able to prevent the truth from coming to light--until now.
