Gaeton Fonzi, The Last Investigation

Written by
It is not just well-written. In some places it rises to the level of extraordinarily well-written. Almost every chapter is well-planned and organized. And the book as a whole contains a completed aesthetic arc to it, writes Jim DiEugenio.

George Michael Evica, A Certain Arrogance

Written by
Much of [his] material [on the Paines] is taken from the extraordinary work done on the couple by Carol Hewett, Barbara La Monica, and Steve Jones. As the author notes, this work is so potent that it was attacked by a big gun of the GOP, Thomas Mallon in his pathetic whitewash of a book, Mrs. Paine's Garage, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Larry Hancock, Someone Would Have Talked

Written by
Although there are some interesting and worthwhile aspects to this book, overall I found it really disappointing. It is ... unconvincing in its overall thesis, and uses questionable sources and witnesses to advance parts of its presentation, while leaving out more credible evidence that works against that particular presentation. It pains me to write like this, since I like Mr. Hancock and think he and his organization have done some good work, writes Jim DiEugenio.
The book's use also lies in demonstrating that it may not be possible for one person to fully master, or give a fair accounting of, this impossibly tangled mess of a case, writes Gary Aguilar.
With statements like Mr. Goetzman's, one doubts if Goetzman, Hanks and Paxton really read Bugliosi's 2,740 pages or any of the critical literature released prior, or subsequent, to Reclaimimg History - especially within a month's time.
Michael Green takes Bugliosi to task on the evidence, arguing for a national security state cover-up through the mass media.

Gerald McKnight, Breach of Trust

Written by
Mark Lane wrote that the Warren Report dishonored "those who wrote it little more than those who praise it." This book makes you feel the sting of that dishonor more than any other book that I know. But, as with the best work in the field, it helps us transcend that shame with the beauty and power of pure understanding, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Vincent Bugliosi, Reclaiming History

Written by
What this case does need is some old-fashioned, historical scholarship. It's a shame and a waste of great time and effort that Bugliosi decided to contribute to the problem and not to its solution, concludes Josiah Thompson.
Paris Flammonde, who spent years in radio and television production ... is part of a vanishing breed -- a cultured intellectual whose wit and intellect is reflected in his prose, writes Bill Davy.

Joan Mellen, A Farewell To Justice

Written by
The book was a huge disappointment for me. Reportedly, Mellen spent seven years on it and over 150, 000 dollars. So, quite naturally, like others, I was expecting at least a worthwhile effort. If it was not going to be definitive, it would now be at least the best book on Garrison. But that's not true, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Gerald Posner, Case Closed

Written by
Massive numbers of factual errors suffuse the book, which make it a veritable minefield, writes history professor David Wrone.

Posner in New Orleans: Gerry in Wonderland

Written by
