Product Description

About the Author

Harrison Livingstone, a great admirer of President Kennedy, traveled to Dallas in December, 1963, and took a room near the Dealey Plaza. While studying the ground where JFK was shot, he met Penn Jones, Jr., a combat veteran and colonel at the Anzio beachhead and other famous battles in Italy during World War II, and Jones showed Livingstone both storm drains on and near the triple railroad overpass that the fatal limousine headed towards when th shots rang out. "This is where the shots came from," Jones said. Livingstone began an extraordinary investigation to find out if this was true or untrue, and found powerful evidence to support such a conspiracy. Along with the discovery of the forgery of the autopsy evidence. Not long after, the south drain over Commerce Street was paved over when the parking lot was extended.

Livingstone has researched the case ever since, producing six major books (three of them are bestsellers) on the case with a specialty in the medical evidence. His published articles would fill a seventh book. At times his investigative team involved nearly 100 people spanning the nation. In 1979, he was the first person to show copies of the autopsy photographs to the Dallas doctors and nurses and elicited their responses which Penn Jones published. The Dallas medical witnesses uniformly denounced the pictures as not representing the wounds they saw. This startling finding has been substantiated by major government investigations involving the autopsy doctors, photographers, corpsmen, and the FBI agents present, as well as the other researchers, presented in his previous books.

His work changed the entire course of the investigation. Questions about the credibility of the medical and photographic evidence were a great taboo, and he had to overcome the "gatekeepers" in whose agenda was to insist that the medical and photographic evidence was authentic, whereas Mr. Livingstone held that (like the evidence against Lee Harvey Oswald), it was fabricated. "All of the evidence in the case is false!" he says. His task was to prove it, and that he did in his first four books. He is considered the principal researcher, investigator and write in the case, with several bestsellers to his credit.

He had suspicions for many years about the Zapruder film and those who placed great credibility in it, but "it was very difficult to find something to hang one's hat on" he says. Slowly, the picture came together and he developed powerful evidence of the falsification of even that famous film, presented in companion volume to this book: The Hoax of the Century: Decoding the Forgery of the Zapruder Film.

Mr Livingstone writes novels, short stories, plays and films. He has written a ballet film for children and their families, historical dramas about Cortes, Hitler, and the entire American Revolution, and an Elizabethan bawdy comedy. With roots on both coasts of the U.S., he lives in California.

This is a big book making a big claim - finally having solved the enigma of JFK's assassination - who shot him and who ordered it? Harrison produces some evidence that I had certainly not seen until reading this book. However it must be said that overall there is not a great amount that is new or that casts a different light on existing knowledge about the events in Dallas on 22nd November 1963.
After the book arrived I sat down with some anticipation. I found the chapters dealing with the Dallas right-wing fraternity fascinating and feel that Harrison was wrong not to persue to a greater depth this element. After all the blurb promises evidence to prove the radical right was responsible but just as this begins to come into it's own the chapter ends leaving the reader tantilised but disappointed as we find ourselves veering onto another path.
Sadly the reader finds herself back amongst the familiar (and now quite old) debates about what the Parkland doctors saw, if the cadaver was tampered with, the autopsy, the autopsy photos, the autopsy x-rays, who was/wasn't at the autopsy, was Oswald the real Oswald, Marina the real Marina and on and on .......Frankly I was bored to death at having to plough through this stuff again and was honestly annoyed by it's inclusion in the book.
If you know nothing about the assassination then buy this book but if, like me you have a good knowledge and want to explore the right-wing influence or even responsibility save your cash. These links need to be explored thoroughly and despite it's claims this is not the book that does so.

Livingstone brings together all his previous work. The title tells you where he believes the heart of the murder conspiracy to be. And that is where most people thought it was right from the beginning.

This time he adds a few guilty names too. Unfortunately he also includes some uncorroborated speculation, particularly when describing how President Kennedy was murdered. And there are attacks on other researchers which we could do without. He should let the evidence speak for itself after the manner of Sylvia Meagher. If the researchers he attacks are indeed "misinformation specialists" their work will wither as surely as Gerald Posner's lies.

Nevertheless, the book is well worth reading if you are a serious student of the assassination. The descriptions of evidence falsification alone makes it worthwhile. Moreover, it readies you for inevitable establishment propaganda looming to dispel the fiftieth remembrance of the assassination. None of the Oswald (or Mob)-Did-It propaganda will work because the evidence shows clearly where the guilt is. Livingstone has done us all a great service. One day the politicians might summon equal courage to confirm his work.

Classic Harry: flawed, erratic, from the hip, warts & all :) 22 Jan. 2005
By Vince Palamara - Published on
Format: Paperback
Harry Livingstone is a true enigma, a paradox of sorts---an old Beatnik with a sincere, dedicated passion for the truth in John Kennedy's murder and in JFK the man himself. Harry's books are fascinating and compelling...and quite unique: for every brilliantly written passage, there is another that makes you wince. Typos, run-on sentences, and grammar are potholes in the road from time to time. Alot of repetition, as well.
So, WHY am I giving this book 5 stars? Because it may be Livingstone's crowning achievement, with a close second being his best-selling "High Treason 2." There is so much great, important information contained herein that to give this book a 4 star (or less) rating would be heresy, even in spite of the spelling, grammar, and repetitive 'problems.' Harry shoots from the hip at times...and, warts and all, he often hits the target. Although I have every other book in Livingstone's impressive catalogue, I bought this one begrudgingly, thinking to myself "Why ANOTHER book, Harry? Haven't you said it all before?" I was WRONG...flawed, erratic, but indispensable. It is well worth it for the gems aplenty, the passionate writing, and the occasional brilliant passages. Buy this a.s.a.p.!!!:)

Harrison Livingstone points the finger squarely at Lyndon Johnson, H.L. Hunt & Texas oil executives for the JFK assassination 9 Mar. 2012
By Robert P. Morrow - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree. This is a fabulous book that needs to be read alongside:

Go to page 59 and read Livingstone's summary of the JFK assassination. Lyndon Johnson, H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, Sr., David Atlee Phillips, the CIA.

I have done 4 years of intensive JFK research and in a nutshell Lyndon Johnson and his Texas oil men used their CIA/military connections to murder John Kennedy for a host of reasons both personal and ideological.

LBJ and his close friend J. Edgar Hoover were in charge of the cover up - and they did with a vengence! Then LBJ put CIA Allen Dulles on the Warren Commission to manipulate that farce.

The book also prints part of a Hoover memo to LBJ that note that the KGB by September, 1965 had information in their hands purporting to show that Lyndon Johnson had orchestrated the JFK assassination.

Based on what we know about Lyndon Johnson's fragile, mentally delusional state at that time, that could not have been a comforting thought!

This book also contains a lot of depositions and information about the Dr. Charles Crenshaw lawsuit against the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)- which he won a large cash settlement from.

This book is well written; it's informative and I think it is well worth the price you will have to pay for it!

Livingstone has done it again! 13 Mar. 2005
By Chris Petit - Published on
Format: Paperback
One of the very few researcher/writers who pulls no punches. Meticulously documented and footnoted, Livingstone names names and compiles events in Dallas as they most probably occured. A great addition to his previous works has a little repetition and although he discusses the Tippet murder may have several reasons, I believe Henry Hurt's to be the most plausible. This book is a must read for anyone with serious interest in the case. Great job, Harry, Sincerely, Chris Petit

His Best By Far 26 Mar. 2007
By Billy B. Barrett - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Harry has always been a true believer. His chapter updating the latest on the autopsy is reason enough to get this book. The newest information will

spin the heads around of the Posnerites. This work is not for the novice, but it will more than sustain the experienced JFK reader.

Strong Evidence, Poorly Written 4 Jun. 2005
By Jim Bates - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Livingstone makes a very good case for the known fact that the assassination was a conspiracy, carried out and covered up with the assistance of the highest of government officials.

However, there were aspects of this book which I found quite disconcerting. Livingstone makes some bold statements, most of which I happen to believe, but only because I've researched this subject for the last 30 years, and consider myself somewhat of an expert. But perhaps the most disconcerting element is the fact that he spelled Lyndon Baines Johnson wrong. Yes wrong, and this places into jeopardy the credibilty of his further statements. In the book, Baines, the correct spelling, was spelled Baynes.

Before reading this book, I suggest, if unfamiliar with the case and its players that one read either "JFK The Second Plot" or "Crossfire" or another book on the subject. You need to be familiar with the people involved because this book will not help you to decipher who they are or their backgrounds. Further, unfortunately, Livingstone skips all over the place inserting non topical information into a chapter which is devoted to a particular topic. It is stream of conscious writing and this makes it difficult to follow unless very well versed on the case.

I have read all of Livingstone's other books on this subject. He is perhaps the foremost authority, which by its very nature makes this a book worth purchasing and reading. But be ready to try following a "Superball" in a closet because it is that frustrating. If he did not have a ghost writer, he should have, and if he did they did an awful job.
