Interesting forensic & evidence analysis book that, if it doesn't have full answers, at least finds a lot of holes in the official ones. ( )

The book covers unlimited speculation and intrigue surrounding the deaths of the famous and not nearly so famous, ten in all. I read only the parts covering President Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Vince Foster. For conspiracy advocates this book presents will provide a fool's paradise.

Some day we may find that one of the theories was in fact real, but most of us will be long gone ourselves and what difference would it make other than exposing the plot long after the event with little consequence.

I personally do not believe in the great conspiracies posed, primarily on the Kennedy assassination but they do make interesting speculation considering motives ranging from the mafia to LBJ. In Vince Fosters case they don't even speculate on those behind it which I found puzzling, apparently leaving it to the reader's imagination. The most annoying aspect of the book was a repetition of similar angles to seemingly fill up space in the book.

Not a bad presentation overall but nothing particularly new or sensation just the typical hype and fodder for late night talk radio. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Have you ever heard the story on the news of a politician being "found dead" or "committing suicide," and it seemed a little strange to you? Well, after you read this book, you'll realize that your instincts were correct. For years the government has put out hits on people that it finds "expendable" or who it felt were "talking too much." David Wayne is here to show you that not only were these people murdered, but that it was done by our own government! Find out how Marilyn Monroe was murdered, who really shot Martin Luther King Jr., and many other cover-ups throughout our country's history. The extensive research and fact-checking done show how our government has taken matters into its own hands and has acted however they saw fit. If you thought "big brother" was watching you, now realize that yes, you are being watched--and through the scope of a sniper rifle, at that.--From publisher description.… (more)
