Book Description

The people of America were not satisfied that Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidential inquiry into the murder of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 had revealed the truth. This inspired a ‘people's investigation’, the nature and the scale of which were unequalled. It was the beginning of a quest to establish the truth which has so far taken 50 years and which still goes on.

Who Killed Kennedy? is an exhaustive account of that quest, through the eyes of a historian who has been involved in it from the very beginning.

It is a story of treachery, lies, deceit and murder. As the investigation has progressed over the years, the revelations have been breathtaking, the facts staggering and the real story so dramatic that fiction simply cannot equal it.

Product Description


"Many people are more interested in Kennedy's death than his life, which is why Matthew Smith's book Who Killed Kennedy? had to appear at this juncture. It explores much familiar ground - of likely CIA involvement in the murder - and some new avenues within it ... all of which seems utterly credible. For this story has no end, nor will it ever. This is why we remain entranced." (Ed Vulliamy The New Review (Observer))

Book Description

An explosive new study that precedes the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK

1.0 out of 5 stars Speculative and poorly written 8 Sept. 2015
I confess that initially in the 1980's , I was hoodwinked by the Hollywood film fiction that is JFK. Much of the style in which this book is written has the author straining at" might've, could've, possibly" instead of dealing in facts.
Vincent Bugliosi is barely mentioned, as if to ignore the wealth of evidence that LHO shot both Kennedy and Tippitt. Most of the conspiracists' theories are traduced by the excellent Phillip Shenon work, " A Cruel and Shocking Act The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination" which contains a wealth of detail of the blunders that the Warren Commission made, which were exploited by Mark Lane and other members of the conspiracy industry. It is true that the CIA, FBI, Hoover, Dallas Police, Earl l Warren and Robert Kennedy all acted shabbily and LHO's time in Mexico was withheld from the Warren Commission by the CIA

1.0 out of 5 stars Bovine excrement. 1 Jun. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Matthew Smith is an inveterate and unconscionable liar.

This book, like all of his others, relies on the ignorance of his reader, the inclusion of lies, the omission of facts and the absence of any source or reference notes. The absence of such notes ensures that the inexperienced reader can never know when Smith is lying about something or simply making it up out of thin air.

Unfortunately for Smith, not everybody is as ignorant as he would wish them to be.

In order to fully expose Smith I am providing checkable sources which prove that he is dishonest.

He effectively begins his book on page 31, chapter2: `Dallas'. Prior pages are taken up with a three-page acknowledgement, various content tables, a five page `foreword' by Cyril Wecht, a one page `introduction' and a first chapter which is sycophantic homily to the deceased JFK. Smith swoons, "..under Kennedy, the United States had begun to shine out as a beacon of peace." Really?? History seems to be another of Smith's `intellectual black-holes'.

Chapter 2: Dallas,

(p. 31) "When it [the motorcade] reached the intersection of Main street with Houston street, instead of proceeding straight ahead, it took another right turn and followed a route which was a revision of the original one planned."

FALSE: The motorcade route was never changed.
See WCR pp. 31- 40. These pages include photographic plates, maps and diagrams as well as written text. The testimony of those who formulated the route can be found in 4 H 338 (Lawson), 7 H 337-8 (Sorrells), 7 H 443 (O' Donnell), 4 H 326 (Lawson), 4 H 341 (Lawson), 7 H 333 (Sorrells), 4 H 333 (Lawson) and 5 H 465-6 (Rowley).

The HSCA also examined the issue of the parade route.

As usual, an excellent book. I'm pleased to note he has now publicly expressed reservations about his earlier view of J D Tippit's role.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST be read!! 15 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is THE book to read for anyone interested in the Kennedy assassination. At long last someone has been able to PROVE what many of us have suspected, that there WAS a conspiracy, that WAS more than one gunman and that one of them WAS on the Grassy Knoll. I cannot praise this author and this book highly enough, a piece of superb journalism.
