Here is Frank's son's review:

I am writing this review to inform anyone considering purchasing a used copy of the book that there are a number of minor picture caption typos and one big misstatement in the Editor's Note of which you should be aware.
The misstatement concerns the rifle used to shoot President Kennedy. The Editor's Note states that it was an M1. That is incorrect. It was a 6.5 millimeter model 91/38 Mannlicher-Carcano rifle. This has been confirmed with the other F.B.I. agent who was at JFK's autopsy with Dad.
This Editor's Note was not written by my father. His health was beginning to fail at the time and I do not believe he even proofed it. He would have caught such a glaring error. The incorrect picture captions were corrected in my final proof of the book however the publisher inadvertently neglected to make the corrections before the book was printed.
I have not put this book up for sale on Amazon, or sent it to the major East Coast newspaper reviewers as planned, since we have yet to receive corrected copies of the book. The publisher, Codfish Press of Brewster, MA, has not been forthcoming with those promised copies and we have little legal recourse since Dad apparently did not sign a written contract with them. Not unusual for him since his contract was often just a handshake. It has now been several years and I doubt we will ever see reprinted copies.
My family and I do hope to have copies of the existing book up for sale at some point. Any copies sold/distributed by us will contain labels with corrections pasted over the offending passages. Thank you.
