Updated with the latest evidence, Pulitzer Prize finalist Anthony Summers’s essential, acclaimed account of President Kennedy’s assassination.
Almost sixty years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, most Americans still think they have not been told the truth about his death. Chief Justice Earl Warren, who chaired the first inquiry, said “some things” that “involve security” might not be released in the lifetime of the then public. Millions of pages of assassination records were made public since the late 1990s.
As of 2022, however, more than thirteen thousand declassified documents—most of them from CIA records—still contain redactions. President Biden ordered that all documents be released in December of 2022—unless he sanctions continued secrecy. Anthony Summers’s account of the murder mystery that haunts America is one of the finest books on the assassination.
“An awesome work, with the power of a plea as from Zola for justice.” —Los Angeles Times
“The closest we have to that literary chimera, a definitive work on the events in Dallas.” —The Boston Globe
