This is pretty good hardboiled detective writing, using the John F. Kennedy assassination as the central plot point. I like this guy, given his attraction to women between the ages of 20 to 80; my kind of guy!
Unfortunately, while some excellent facts will be learned, the focus is on the final falsely generated conspiracy misinformation, blaming it on LBJ and those Texas oilmen - - although they were involved, it removes the focus on the true culprits, the Rockefeller family [the Rockefeller brothers] and the CIA within the CIA, as Robert Parry calls them [Dulles, David Atlee Phillips, George Joannides, Lansdale, Conein, Harvey, et cetera]. Still, an entertaining book, and those unfamiliar with that segment of history should learn something. [The JFK tract followed the usual process, e.g., first it was Castro, then the KGB, then the anti-Castro Cubans, then the Mafia, then Lyndon Johnson; just as with 9/11 Internet misinformation, originating from a block of IP addresses owned by the Pentagon, falsely pointed towards drones instead of airliners, et cetera - - although the drone engineers, i.e., remote piloting hardware/software developers, were indeed aboard those airliners that day!]
