Granted, I only skimmed this tome. It appeared though to be an extended ad hominem attack against critics of the Warren Commission and witnesses whose stories conflict with the official account (which absurdity Mr Shennon appears to accept unconditionally). Disinfo at this late date? Sure looks like it. Apparently, Operation Mockingbird is still going strong. If you are a student of the most historiographically complex event of the 20th century, look elsewhere: there's nothing new here.

an engrossing look at how the Warren Commission was created and what they discovered, and didn't discover, during their investigation into the Kennedy assassination.

Yet another bizarre and misleading recently published book on the JFK assassination (the majority of which were financed or underwritten by hedge funds, most peculiar since these books were money losers? ?) which assures us a debunked misinformational psy op (an imposter, who was purported to have been Lee Oswald, and his trip to the American embassy in Mexico City - - this has been disproven so many times it has become an unworthy subject). I am unfamiliar with this writer, but feel reasonably certain should I research him he will have followed the usual pattern of the disinformation types. Nothing groundbreaking in this time-waster, simply more murky obfuscation instead of facts!
