More than a valuable reference book, tying together a treasure trove of JFK, CIA, FBN, FBI and other alphabet lore (sometimes in novel ways,) "A Secret Order: Investigating the High Strangeness and Synchronicity in the JFK Assassination" is filled with "never revealed before" information unknown to even the most earnest "geeks" of assassination errata.
Hank teases characters from the shadows of his prior work - "A Terrible Mistake: The Murder of Frank Olson and the CIA's Secret Cold War Experiments" - further documenting, for example, the white hat/black hat antics of the CIA's flamboyant LSD interrogator George Hunter White - a character one is grateful to have never met, but at the same time is filled with the most certain fear that there are versions of this White walking (and plotting) amidst us even today.
Albarelli indulges in no florid speculations in this work (at the same time eliminating a great deal of noisome fallacies,) and that is a fine bit of discipline considering, for example, how many times one Lee Harvey Oswald is documented brushing cuffs with the mind-control cognoscenti of MK/ULTRA and MK/NAOMI.
We come upon the 50th anniversary of the most controversial assassination of the most visible man in the world this November. One must draw one's own personal conclusions regarding this mystery, especially those of us of a certain generation. It would be short-sighted to do so without this volume.
It is a peculiar history indeed that the author of "A Secret Order" has preserved for us. These stories are about much, much more than the mystery of a Presidential assassination, and this book should be found on the shelf of any serious student of history.
