Description
From the authors of Ultimate Sacrifice --"Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives" ( Vanity Fair ). John F. Kennedy's assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963, the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan's exposure could have led to a nuclear confrontation with Russia, but the cover-up prevented a full investigation into Kennedy's assassination, a legacy of secrecy that would impact American politics and foreign policy for the next forty-five years. It also allowed two men who confessed their roles in JFK's murder to be involved in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968. Exclusive interviews and newly declassified files from the National Archives document in chilling detail how three mob bosses were able to prevent the truth from coming to light until now. "They've done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory." --Ron Rosenbaum, New York Times bestselling author of Explaining Hitler "A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the US's most personal tragedies." -- Publishers Weekly ( starred review)
