[Update 2016: The interesting connection to Mr. Garrison's town was Guy Banister, fronting for the CIA, dispatched his attorney, Maurice Gatlin, to be the money courier to France to pay the OAS - - the French fascist military/deserters group - - for an attempt on the life of President de Gaulle, which they failed, thankfully! Gatlin would be murdered by CIA's Counter Intelligence group cleaner, David Herbert Strier {thrown off the El Panama Hotel in Puerto Rico in 1964; Strier was also the assassin of Frank Olson, who had witnessed an unsuspecting British soldier die horribly in an MK ULTRA experient, and decided to resign from the CIA, which they wouldn't allow, instead they terminated him}. By killing Gatlin evidently they felt they had destroyed the link between the CIA and the attempt on de Gaulle's life.]
This book was a valiant effort to understand both Jim Garrison's investigation, which started from flawed premises [that Oswald was involved in the murder of President Kennedy, and that events in New Orleans were other than tangential] and therefore doomed. What was uncovered, but only verified much later, was that Clay Shaw perjured himself [CIA Director Helms later testifying before the Senate that Shaw had worked for the CIA] and the munitions and weaponry found on William McLaney's property [Oswald was originally dispatched by someone connected with the White House to ferret out this information and was successful, Bobby Kennedy, with US Marshals, would later shut down the training of the rogue CIA assassin section on McLaney's property]. Also, that David Ferrie was expert at inducing live cancer cells, and that shortly after a judge would rule that Jack Ruby should be transferred out of Dallas jail, Ruby quickly came down with cancer, and would perish in January, 1967, while Ferrie would die shortly thereafter, in February of 1967. [Other than that, not much to be learned from this book.] Author has a chapter on the motivation behind the assassination, but unfortunately doesn't understand either finance, nor the sociology of the super-rich.
