I was disappointed in this book, especially in light of the first High Treason. Part 2 was written without Part 1's co-author Robert Groden. His absence is notable here, because he apparently kept Part 1's narrative on track. Harrison Edward Livingstone writing on his own in High Treason 2 is unfortunate, because this book is a mess. Livingstone spends more than 300 pages rehashing the medical evidence in the Kennedy case, focusing an inordinate amount on the forged X-rays and autopsy photos. He ...more

Like its coauthored predecessor, High Treason 1, this book, while creditable for some of the original research it represents, is very poorly written. The emphasis here, again, is on the photographic evidence, much of which the author shows to be suspect. In addition, much attention is paid to the testimony of persons present at the Dallas and/or Bethesda examinations of the body, testimony which overwhelmingly indicates that a conspiracy occurred in that the President was shot from both front an ...more

I am a complete history nerd and the JFK assassination is one of the most fascinating events in history to me. Parts can be a little slow, hence the 4 stars, but altogether it has GREAT information and sums up the Warren Commission Report well while also adding its own conspiracy theories and conclusions. Pictures were well labeled and added a whole other sense of mystery. Great read (especially for a history geek)

Livingstone tells us that he detests Oliver Stone's JFK. This is a particularly fascinating judgement given that he's never seen Oliver Stone's JFK. Oh, I have no doubt that he's watched the images flashing on the screen, heard the words spilling from the speakers, but that's not quite the same thing. Not when every image and every word is concurrently totted up against the bill of his own beliefs. I don't think that Livingstone (or anyone as thoroughly invested in the assassination as he is) is ...more

Anyone familiar with my reading habits will not be at all surprised that I have jumped into the sequel, 'High Treason 2' and missed out the national bestseller, 'High Treason'. So, if you have read the first book and are looking for a comparative review of the second...apologies.
Harrison Edward Livingstone is clearly someone who went all the way with JFK! He makes his feelings known right from the start, and as they echo my own, I didn't have a problem with that.
Getting on for six hundred pages,
