While reading this book, it's easy to forget that Garrison's trial had only recently concluded in New Orleans. In 1970, the Zapruder film had yet to be released to the american people. While he doesn't delve too deeply into the Shaw case specifically, he does present his view of who killed President Kennedy and why. He also makes a very compelling case for Oswald not being involved with either the shooting of officer J.D. Tippit or Kennedy. I noticed a lot of his passages end up being recited ...more

Very interesting take on the JFK assassination & cover up from the man who conducted the only real & independent investigation on how & who killed our President, and why. I've read Trail of the Assassin's also, which is primarily Garrison's presentation of his case; this is somewhat of an editorial on that experience & his statement on what it means. It's hard to find a copy of this title, because of that I hope it can be digitized for electronic format. It is an extremely ...more

Brave look behind the curtain. For many years it scared me to see just how controlled we are by gov't. How easily they can make any of us disappear for any reason. Until I realized Bill Murray is right in both Meatballs and The Razor's Edge. "It just doesn't matter."

This is a great book that puts for several possible theories as to who might have really killed JFK and why. Also totally debunks the Warren Commission report.

Earling Carothers "Jim" Garrison, Democratic District Attorney of Orleans Parish, Louisiana from 1962 to 1973 was absolutely convinced the assassination of John F. Kennedy involved more shooters than Oswald, who was a government agent, and included in the conspiracy Jack Ruby. Guy Banister - employee of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an Assistant Superintendent of the New Orleans Police Department, and a private investigator - was an avid anti-communist, fixer for anti-Castro forces and vi ...more

I read a critique of this book and the movie, JFK, based on Garrison's work, prior to reading this. Notwithstanding, this work holds up as worthy of consideration even after so many years, particularly as regards the New Orleans aspects of the assassination case. After reading this I watched Oliver Stone's movie again with greater appreciation for the details which almost overwhelmingly pack it.

Did Garrison really believe he was on the trail of the JFK conspirators? Was his investigation just more smoke and mirrors? Did he have good intentions? We will never know.
