Publisher's Summary

Lyndon Baines Johnson was a man of great ambition and enormous greed, both of which, in 1963, would threaten to destroy him. In the end, President Johnson would use power from his personal connections in Texas and from the underworld and from the government to escape an untimely end in politics and to seize even greater power. President Johnson, the thirty-sixth president of the United States, was the driving force behind a conspiracy to murder President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. In The Man Who Killed Kennedy, you will find out how and why he did it. Political consultant, strategist, and Libertarian Roger Stone has gathered documents and used his firsthand knowledge to construct the ultimate tome to prove that LBJ was not only involved in JFK's assassination, but was in fact the mastermind. With 2013 being the fiftieth anniversary of JFK's assassination, this is the perfect time for The Man Who Killed Kennedy to be available to readers. The research and information in this book is unprecedented, and as Roger Stone lived through it, he's the perfect person to bring it to everyone's attention.

Audible Editor Reviews

In this audio book, longtime Republican political operative Roger Stone makes a daring assertion about one of the most pivotal moments in American history.
Featuring a measured performance by David Rapkin, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ presents the theory that the CIA conspired with the Mafia and Texas oil men to kill Kennedy and install Lyndon Johnson as the president. Although Stone's assertion will certainly be questioned, his firsthand knowledge of politics and politicians shines through in his writing.
Rapkin's calm, conversational performance helps make Stone's contentious claims feel slightly less hyperbolic.

Beyond Reasonable Doubt?

A compelling and fascinating dissection of the JFK assassination. As well as dissecting the available (Not destroyed) evidence it takes a forensic look into who wanted JFK dead and who profited from his death. It becomes clear that only one man could sit at the centre of the web, and that was the man who inherited the greatest prize of all - the White House itself. Does this book prove the case beyond reasonable doubt? Listen and decide yourself , you'll certainly enjoy the trial whatever you decide.

Not Just Another Conspiracy Theory !

Did LBJ kill President Kennedy ? I don't as a rule believe in conspiracy theories. Nor do I believe LBJ killed President Kennedy. So why am I reading this book ? The simple answer is I like a good conspiracy theory and if there is one conspiracy theory that I do believe is that the original conclusions of the Warren Commission are false. My own view is that there was more than one assassin that shot dead Kennedy. There was probably two gunmen in the Depository building (one being Oswald) and one marksman behind the grassy knoll who fired the final and fatal bullet. Who was responsible for the plot to assassinate Kennedy ? One of the usual suspects, in my view: the Russians, Cubans, CIA, Johnson or the Mafia; take your pick. For me, the most likely suspects are the Russians, which is why there was a cover up to avoid a military confrontation at the height of the Cold War. This is an interesting book full of conjecture and all I will say is that it makes an argument that Johnson could have been behind Kennedy's murder, although, I don't personally believe it. You will probably take a different view to mine after reading this book.

My rating 4/5. Interesting theory which many people now believe, however, I do not which is why I deduct 1 star. It could only get 5 stars if I believe LBJ did it. Nevertheless, I give it a high 4 stars because it provides a lot of information and also describes LBJ's hatred of the Kennedy's. It is also quite amusing as the author clearly cannot stand LBJ.
