"Nexus: The CIA and Political Assassination"- great new book
I am a huge fan of Larry Hancock's seminal work "Someone Would Have Talked"---brilliant piece of investigative journalism; easily, one of the finest books on the JFK assassination. Well, Larry has written what I consider to be a very worthwhile addendum to that book with "Nexus: The CIA & Political Assassination." In fact, because of its modest size (a tad over 200 pages), perhaps this book would be the place to start for those unfamiliar with the aforementioned volume. Larry puts all the pieces together in a highly documented and persuasive fashion, demonstrating just how the CIA worked years before the JFK assassination, as well as shortly before, during, and after. By focusing on the agency in this way, Larry paints a compelling case for CIA complicity in the assassination. Indeed, the CIA, Cuba, and Conspiracy are the three "C"'s Larry depicts in sharp relief with to-the-point narrative and excellent research. Get this one now...and "Someone Would Have Talked", as well. Your library is not complete without them. Kudos, Larry, for another outstanding book!
