This vividly written probe of the Kennedy assassination, internationally acclaimed when first published, has been massively revised and updated. It includes the revelations resulting from recent releases of documents long withheld by US intelligence agencies. The author produces fresh information on the deceptions of the CIA; Oswald's trip to Mexico City shortly before the assassination; new information on nefarious activity in New Orleans; the botched autopsy of the President's body.
