A tale of conspiracy and corruption-the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963 remains one of the greatest mysteries of the twentieth century. At the centre of the puzzle stands the enigmatic figure of Lee Harvey Oswald, who was himself killed by Jack Ruby only days after Kennedy's death. Few people today believe the official explanation that Oswald was the sole assassin. Eye-witness accounts, film shot at the time and acoustic, medical and photographic evidence all point to a second gunman, aand a second gunman points to the most feared scenario: a conspiracy. But despite many theories-involving the Mafia, the Russian and the CIA-no one has yet come up with a convincing explanation of Oswald's precise role in the Presidents murder. After 30 years of research, Matthew Smith has uncovered the second plot-the plot in which Oswald's true role in the assassination is exposed-and the unmasking of a second plot leads naturally to the first. In this extraordinary and important book we learn for the first time who Oswald really was, who he was working for and what his true role was in the macabre enterprise. In JFK: The Second Plot the machinations behind Kennedy's assassination are exposed for all to see .
