Crossfire–The Plot That Killed Kennedy by Jim Marrs

By Jim Marrs (1943-2017), a Ft Worth/Dallas journalist who taught a college course on the assassination in his home town. Its nearly 600 pages are jammed with detail on every aspect of the shooting, the investigations, the suspicions that fell on the Mafia, the FBI, the CIA, anti-Castro Cubans—all the usual suspects. For its comprehensiveness alone, this would be the one book for anyone seeking a really thorough examination of the assassination, although it lacks an index. Marrs is sensible and straightforward, giving every side of disputed questions, though it is clear that for him, as for most thoughtful people, the Warren Commission’s picture of Oswald as a lone assassin doesn’t work. The author talked to witnesses never officially interviewed, even offers never-before-seen pictures. His conclusion: Kennedy made so many enemies in business, the military, the right wing, the mob, that his death became inevitable.
