"A book for the ages."—?Los Angeles Times Book Review

Four Days in November is an extraordinarily exciting, precise, and definitive narrative of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, by Lee Harvey Oswald. It is drawn from Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a huge and historic account of the event and all the conspiracy theories it spawned, by Vincent Bugliosi, famed prosecutor of Charles Manson and author of Helter Skelter. For general readers, the carefully documented account presented in Four Days is utterly persuasive: Oswald did it and he acted alone.

Really gripping read - the opening section detailing the assassination and immediate aftermath was genuinely unputdownable, and the detail of it makes you feel you're involved. For the recorded events ... Read full review

Another whitewash. I knew a woman who was in the open
field across the street from the grassy knowl that very day.
She was co-owner of a nightclub in the area and was aquainted with Jack Ruby.
also ran a motel in Mineral Wells, TX.
She, and several others, heard the shot and saw the smoke that came
from behind the fence above the grassy knowl.
She then saw a man running away between the slats in the fence.
This same event was witnessed by a railroad engineer (later found dead)
on the other side of that fence while hooking up boxcars.
The umbrella man was a few yards away from her opening and
closing his umbrella as if to send some sort of message.
People who saw this received mennacing phone calls and death
threats if they mentioned it -- including her!
She eventually moved to Albuquerque, NM to get away from the threats.
Many witnesses who did come foward died under very mysterious circumstances (read Rick Belzer's book "Hit List"). In fact most who witnessed the second
gunman, and came foward to the police, ended up dead within 2 years!
The odds of that happening are a billion to one.
The kill shot in the Zupruder film shows the impact coming from the front
and pushing Kennedy back and to the left.
I'm truly surprised that someone who was able to put the Manson
bunch away would fall for the 'lone gunman' BS.
Honestly sir, you're better than that and I'm very disappointed.
