By Jim Bishop. When I was growing up, my family -- a lot of families -- had a whole shelf of JFK-assassination books, and this had pride of place on that shelf, alongside The Warren Report and Whitewash. I don't think the book has the cachet it used to, but for case-heads, this one's essential.
This particular Book Club hardcover is in nice shape -- not the jacket, so much (the particular wear pattern, which includes notches out of the back cover edge, a stain or two, and wrinkling along the top on front and back, suggests that it was taken off, then accidentally crushed under other stuff), and there's some speckling to the top page edges. But it's very straight for a book of its age, nice clean pages; an outstanding reading copy, and a look back at what we used to mean when we said "reading in the Kennedy case."
