If Shaw had restrained himself, or if he had had an editor to point out the problems with his design, then this would have been a good and valuable book about Dorothy Kilgallen: who she really was, what we know and do not know about her death. But such was not the case. I would actually recommend Sara Jordan’s informative and objective essay instead, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
Aside from Shane O'Sullivan's mostly worthwhile Killing Oswald, there has been very little of note that has even attempted to counter the MSM's seemingly endless deluge of propaganda with reliable evidence and solid reasoning. A Coup in Camelot clearly aims to fill that void. Unfortunately, however, it falls considerably short of the mark, writes Martin Hay.
Writing of his gratuitous ignorance of the facts of the JFK case, Prof. Fernandez asserts that "[James] Piereson likes to walk among ghosts", and that he is joined in this by Regnery Publishing, which has muddied the Castro-did-it waters with the issue of Robert Wilcox's Target JFK.

On the occasion of Mark Lane's passing, Jim DiEugenio looks back at his autobiography, concluding: "Lane’s life stands out as a man who did what he could to correct the evil and injustice in the world around him, with no target being too small or too large in that regard. This book stands out like a beacon in the night. It shows both what a citizen should be, and what an attorney can be."
My advice about this heavily weighted apparatus [11.22.63] which produces next to nothing is to avoid it at all costs. All it really produces is more money for King and J. J. Abrams – like they need it. It is nothing more than a stupid, demeaning waste of time, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
Jim DiEugenio pays tribute to the long and distinguished career of Citizen Lane, activist and fighter for social and political justice.
James DiEugenio decries how the JFK assassination has been injected into the 2016 presidential election with Donald Trump's baseless accusation that Rafael Cruz was present with Lee Harvey Oswald in New Orleans when he distributed leaflets for the FPCC.
Re-examines the stories about multiple/alternate rifles found on November 22, 1963.
If the reader is interested in knowledge about the inner workings of the radical right back in the fifties or sixties, then this is a useful book. But as far as relating that group to the murder of JFK, it is simply a dud. And a pretentious, bombastic, overlong and tedious dud at that. In this reviewer’s opinion, it is the worst book on the JFK case since Ultimate Sacrifice, concludes Jim DiEugenio.
