Summers has an excellent historical method, seen for example in his clear and objective examination of the evidence on how Jack Ruby managed to get in the right place, at the right time, for Oswald's transfer through police headquarters.
Evidence is given the space to speak for itself. It becomes clear that it is not the author's intention to grind axes for particular angles on this mystery -or to pin the reader to one point of view. Here the author's task is to raise questions based on the available evidence. Though he points the way, he allows the reader to form his own opinions.
In other books, details about Oswald's background and about probable Mafia intrigues can be confusing. These questions naturally remain complicated but here for the first time I found Oswald's strange story made sense. Fluent, gripping -and possibly the best in its field.
This is not just a re-edition, there are updates and alterations of the original text made due to new information that has come to light in the last few years. Also contains some interesting graphics and photos which can be enlarged using the Paperwhite's controls.
