5.0 out of 5 stars All those dirty little secrets, 7 Feb 2012
By 
This review is from: Conspiracy! 49 Reasons to Doubt, 50 Reasons to Believe. (Paperback)
I love this book. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but the 50 stories here are really eye-opening. I had no idea there was any reason to think (see Wikileaks) that there was a fifth 9/11 hijack team - and that they were on a BA plane heading into London's Heathrow Airport. I'd heard people talk about the Second Yorkshire Ripper, but I didn't know the police had covered up the evidence for that, or even that Hitler had tried to blame Poland for starting WWII. Ian Shircore has a knack for picking out the one detail that will stop you in your tracks - Alexander Litvinenko's non-radioactive bus ticket from Muswell Hill, David Kelly's knife with no trace of fingerprints, or the comparison of the last two emails sent from Bob Woolmer's laptop. He sheds new light on old stories, from Marilyn Monroe's grisly death to the sudden passing of Pope John Paul I, and draws our attention in unexpected directions, to Google's links with the CIA and Lech Walesa's surprise confession that he spied for the Polish Communist regime. This is modern history rewritten and disguised as gossip - light, readable, but deep down very serious indeed.

If you think this is bad give yourself a good laugh and take a look at the " The Vale of Tears " book discussion group. One name you might recognise is Mary Kane - one of the reviewers on this book - she is a family member of the author James Murphy, probably his daughter. On Monday of this week they had 38 5* and 5 4*. Now down by 18 reviews as they scuttle for cover.

Thanks for the post - I know of at least one 'Kindle Entrepreneur' from the States who offers a how to write books course with a support forum. That support forum consists of all the existing course members who band together to review each others books favourably here on Amazon.
