Conspiracy in Camelot: The Complete History of the Assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Synopsis

This is a volume packed with information on the JFK assassination that will dazzle readers. From mistresses to Mafia murders, fingerprints to dictabelt recordings, all the evidence is integrated and interwoven into complete and comprehensive perspectives on the assassination. Theories are weighed, checked, contrasted, and contradicted. Evidentiary and exculpatory material is delineated in intelligible and readable fashion, but Marilyn's sexual liaisons with the Kennedy brothers, JFK's 33 mistresses in the White House, and J. Edgar Hoover's homosexuality provide a counterpoint with the shadowy psychological underbelly to this story. Kroth provides a fresh statistical analysis of 86 'mysterious deaths' of witnesses in the assassination and weighs the merits of prevailing theories on who carried out the assassination, and why; he profiles the actors, the witnesses and the investigators. He includes recently released documents and speculates over the large portions of information that remain barred to public scrutiny.

With the recent release of thousands of pages of classified assassination documents, the American fascination — or perhaps we should say obsession — with the Kennedy assassination knows no bounds.

In high-energy physics there is a theory known as “super symmetry,” in which two sub-atomic particles are predicted to appear in high-energy collisions. At the Fermilab, which houses one of the most expensive colliders, scientists were unable to find them. Rather than change the theory or abandon the search altogether, physicists argue they need an even bigger and more expensive machine to generate the 127 billion electron volts needed to finally see these two particles. As the machines get bigger, the particles get smaller, and the seemingly endless search marches forward relentlessly.

Super symmetry is somewhat a metaphor for the American fixation on the Kennedys and particularly the assassination. There is a sense that more books need to be written, more interviews held, more documents examined — and surely, then, this enormous massing of data will ultimately deliver the elusive
