Publisher's Summary

The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, continues to inspire interest ranging from well-meaning speculation to bizarre conspiracy theories and controversial filmmaking. But in this landmark audiobook, reissued with a new afterword for the 40th anniversary of the assassination, Gerald Posner examines all of the available evidence and reaches the only possible conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
There was no second gunman on the grassy knoll. The CIA was not involved. And although more than four million pages of documents have been released since Posner first made his case, they have served only to corroborate his findings. Case Closed remains the classic account against which all books about JFK's death must be measured.

Follow the Evidence

This is an example of thorough, evidence led journalism. It is a book which starts with the man at the centre of the story, Lee Harvey Oswald. You learn so much about him, it really gives you an idea of his character and his philosophy. The first half of the book is a necessary portrait of man who is otherwise buried and forgotten under a pile of alternative theories regarding the JFK assassination. it is the essential piece of evidence at the heart of the whole tale, which is otherwise miraculously forgotten. It is a wonder that Oliver Stone's movie is the only movie out there! The unadulterated facts are far more fascinating.

If you are looking for answers and would like to know why the well repeated conspiracy stories are really only afloat because of everyone keeps repeating them: listen to this book.

As an aside I had this on my "to read list" for a good couple of years. This book was much more appealing as an audio book as it was handy and gave many hours of interesting listening. I may just read the book too, I certainly will be investigating Mr Posner's other books.
