This is the book on which Oliver Stone based his famous movie JFK. The story of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrisons investigation and the subsequent trial of Clay Shaw for conspiracy to murder John F Kennedy is a truly remarkable tale. Mr Garrison took on the entire might of the US security state and media. Although he was ultimately unsuccessful in his quest losing at trial the revelations he was able to make along the way (including the subsequent public release of the Zapruder film) have added greatly to the understanding of the JFK assassination. Mr Garrison was a brave and patriotic public servant who put his entire career and reputation on the line in order to do what he thought was right. His investigation was infiltrated, many witnesses were intimidated or died in mysterious circumstances and he was ruthlessly smeared in the media. Mr Garrison is however now having the last laugh as history and subsequent revelations appear to be proving him correct. This is an audio book that tells a truly fascinating story.
This book contains so much more than I ever imagined and is deserving of the highest accolades.

If you could sum up On the Trail of the Assassins in three words, what would they be?
Poor Lee Oswald
What other book might you compare On the Trail of the Assassins to and why?
A Jack Ryan thriller, because it seemed more like fiction. Moved along fast and there was always another piece of the puzzle showing up to fit into the big picture.
What three words best describe Mark Kincaid’s performance?
Research names first
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I didn't laugh or cry, but it made me almost sick to think such events could happen in our country. The investigation makes the conspiracy theory of November 22, 1963, not only believable, but logical.
Any additional comments?
Mark Kincaid has a great voice, but he consistently mispronounced some names (Schlumberger, Plaquemine, Houma stood out).
