Read full description of the books:
This book was unputdownable from start to finish. I never skipped a page and looked forward to the next time I had free to read this completely fascinating book! I’m saddened that it has ended!
I truly loved the way that Garrison wrote; he used prose that only gave the answers when it became climactically clear that finality was necessary. On other occasions he allowed the reader to get the truth on his/her own. He used sardonic sarcasm that was entertaining, while thought-provoking. For example, (no spoilers) beginning with Chapter 18 we are now at the trial of the infamous Clay Shaw. On page 231 it reads: Judge Haggerty proudly announced that he had made arrangements for the jury to be able to watch … the “truck parade” …. This important local business taken care of, the trial could now get underway.” There Garrison was trying a man for one of the most important murders in American history and the judge is concerned with a parade! But Garrison put no emphasis on this fact; he allowed the revelation to swell antagonistically in the heart of the reader while he laid the facts of the case down.
Also, throughout the book, Garrison gave broad but brief descriptions of the places and people of his narrative while he stuck to the more important things. I’ve come to really appreciate this ability after reading so many authors that focus more on their own writing style than the story. I just want the story – who cares how you artfully you write?
I find myself even more intrigued by the now deceased Mr. Garrison than I have ever been. This is by far, the first instance in my life where I have read a book that spawned a movie (Oliver Stone’s JFK, of course) and found that the movie was almost word-for-word taken from said book!
I’ve since the end of this book searched for more by Jim Garrison books and have found only one other out of print. But there are other authors of this subject and I’ll look further into this as time goes on. Great book – I’m so glad that I read this!

Read information about the authorEarling Carothers "Jim" Garrison, who changed his first name to Jim in the early 1960s — was the Democratic District Attorney of Orleans Parish, Louisiana from 1962 to 1973. He is best known for his investigations into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (JFK).
Garrison remains a controversial figure. Opinions differ as to whether he uncovered a conspiracy behind the John F. Kennedy assassination but was blocked from successful prosecution by a federal government cover up, whether he bungled his chance to uncover a conspiracy, or whether the entire case was an unproductive waste of resources.
