Belzer and Wayne set out to uncover the truth about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination. For decades, government pundits have dismissed these "coincidental" deaths. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents. Others clearly seemed noteworthy; witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously. The findings were absolutely staggering: some cases were clearly linked to a "clean-up operation" after the murder of President Kennedy, while others were the result of 'other forces'.

" A 'misinformation' job (and a sloppy one at that) was done by Gerald Posner in the book CASE CLOSED: LEE HARVEY OSWALD AND THE ASSASSINATION OF JFK. Mr. Posner made quite a few evidentiary errors regarding the Dr. Sherman crime scene in the section of his book very transparently entitled 'The Non-Mysterious Mystery Deaths'; proving yet again that some people--as the old saying goes--just refuse to let the facts get in the way of a good story." "William Sullivan stated to a friend that he would be murdered, that it would be made to look like an accident, and to not believe it......it is mathematically impossible for six senior FBI officials to die naturally in one six-month period, precisely at the time they are being scheduled to give testimony on their specific knowledge regarding the JFK assassination. The odds that the moon is actually made of green cheese are higher than that." "Just prior to his murder, casino owner and well-connected mobster, Jack Zangetty, told friends quite specifically that a man named Jack Ruby would kill Oswald, and then Frank Sinatra's son would be kidnapped to take attention away." "Killgallen's death scene was staged. The autopsy findings: ' lividity posterior involving the left neck and face' versus how she was discovered: propped up in bed, her head tilted, prove that she died in a different position than she was 'found' in--a position that promoted belief in an accidental death.' Dorothy Kilgallen was murdered; probably done as a National Security Assassination. Notes for her upcoming JFK book disappeared, including the backup copy she had entrusted to a friend. When police responded to the 911 call upon the discovery of her body, actress Joan Crawford was waiting with Dorothy's intimates, in the lobby." " Like Hank Killam, Gary Underhill was clearly running for his life. And, like Killam, he predicted his own death, and was murdered soon after." " The book WITHOUT SMOKING GUN by Kent Heiner, is an excellent biography that concisely details the alteration of JFK's body, the death of Lieutenant Commander Pitzer, and the testimony of U.S. Army Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel Dan Marvin, who was asked to assassinate Pitzer by the CIA for the stated purpose of National Security." If you disbelieve, yet retain an open mind, this book ( HIT LIST) is a good place to start your alternative belief system research project. Remember: it's for the sake of all.

FYI: Richard Belzer is an actor/stand-up comedian. He was part of the original cast of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for many season.

there's nothing in depth about the cases written about herein: I see it as wide ranging, gathering up some previously unknown examples of witness killings connected with jfk's assassination. if you have a bent for math, statistics, this one's right up your alley. you'll be convinced that something is rotten in Denmark, or Sweden, and it's not just the cheese. Author currently resides in Paris, France. something happened to his father, so he moved there. " ' Deathbed testimony of long-time hitman Frank Sheeran revealed that Hoffa had asked mob leaders Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafficante to get rid of JFK and that, shortly after that request, Sheeran was directed to deliver high-powered rifles to David Ferrie ( Marcello's private pilot) to be used in Dallas.' " If you wish to follow that lead, I refer you to the book written by Mob attorney, Frank Ragano; I refer you to the one I most recently reviewed, POISON PATRIARCH, and I refer you to CONTRACT ON AMERICA: THE MAFIA ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY, by David Scheim.

[Update 10/16: One murder victim who demonstrated foreknowledge, Jack Zangretti, manager of a hotel/casino in Altus, OK, and was found in a swimming pool riddled with bullet holes, bugged his hotel room and happened to overhear Gerry Patrick Hemming, a CIA contractor, discussing the assassination and Ruby killing to take place - - Hemming knew as he was friends with Larry Laborde, former CIA asset, and Mozes Maschkivitzan, one of the assassins {QJ/WIN}. Hemming was part of a weapons caravan going from LA to Miami, and Zangretti's motel was enroute.]
Exhaustively researched book, and still, Mr. Belzer (an author with a most likeable writing style), neglected to include the Washington Post investigative journalist, Larry Stern, who announced he had deduced the murderers and people behind the murder of President Kennedy, and was planning on writing a book about it, but died while on vacation at Martha's Vineyard (suggested cause of death: a bee sting while Larry was out jogging?).

Kind of a fun read about many people connected to JFK and the assassination. Not really a "new" set of "conspiracy theories", but organized in a different way which makes it an interesting and easy read.
