Synopses & Reviews
What really happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963? Was the assassination of John F. Kennedy simply the work of a warped, solitary young man, or was something more nefarious afoot? Pulling together a wealth of evidence, including rare photos, documents, and interviews, veteran Texas journalist Jim Marrs reveals the truth about that fateful day. Thoroughly revised and updated with the latest findings about the assassination, Crossfire is the most comprehensive, convincing explanation of how, why, and by whom our thirty-fifth president was killed.

is compelling, albeit macabre, reading.”

He points to the inconsistencies and unexplained elements embodied in the official version as to what transpired before, during, and after the Presidents death.”
For its comprehensiveness alone, this would be the one book for anyone seeking a really thorough examination of the assassination.... Marrs is sensible and straightforward, giving every side of disputed questions, though it is clear that for him, as for most thoughtful people, the Warren Commissions picture of Oswald as a lone assassin doesnt work.”
