Book Reviews & Awards

“Burt Griffin writes with the authority and confidence of someone in complete control of the tumultuous history of the JFK assassination. Benefiting from his service as the Warren Commission’s assistant counsel, Griffin provides a fresh and page-turning account of America’s most infamous political murder. JFK, Oswald and Ruby is accessible both for those who have never read about the case as well as for veteran assassination researchers. Griffin’s most important contribution is presenting a credible explanation of how the turbulent politics and social divisions of the early 1960s fueled the lethal motives for ‘two powerless but ambitious people,’ Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. Burt Griffin has performed a public service in JFK, Oswald and Ruby.”—Gerald Posner, author of Case Closed
