Great new "Kennedy Detail" review
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful 1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, April 28, 2012 By S. P. Fitzgerald (Plymouth, Michigan) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Kennedy Detail (Kindle Edition) Boring is about the worst thing that could be said of a story with so much potential. Bought this expecting an insider's account of JFK or Jackie or the Secret Service or the assassination or gossip or .... something. Instead what the reader gets is several hundred pages of low-level bureaucratic whining about being overworked. If I wanted to hear that I'd just go hang around the DMV. Which, in truth, would have been about as interesting as this book. You can almost hear yourself sighing at the prospect of another report. Did I mention the author, Blaine, wasn't even in Dallas? No mention of Fiddle or Faddle or Mimi or Mariyn either. Did I mention that the author almost drilled LBJ with a Tommy gun the night of the assassination but didn't? That is not far off from the author's own description and about as dramatic.
