Hit List (hardcover, 338 pages) is an in-depth investigation into the mysterious deaths of witnesses to the JFK Assassination. In their follow-up to Dead Wrong, authors Richard Belzer and David Wayne are back again to set the record straight; this time they're going to uncover the truth about the many witness deaths tied to the JFK assassination. The simple observation that it is statistically impossible for so many witness deaths to simply be coincidence has dramatic implications. The math indicates that witnesses who "knew something" were systematically eliminated. For decades, government pundits have dismissed these "coincidental" deaths, even regarding them as "myths" or "urban legends." However, this book reveals startling different conclusions.
Like most people, Richard and David were initially unsure about what to make of these "coincidences." After all, events don't consult the odds prior to happening; they simply happen. Then someone comes along later and figures out what the odds of it happening were. Some of the deaths seemed purely coincidental; heart attacks, hunting accidents. Others clearly seemed noteworthy; witnesses who did seem to know something and did seem to die mysteriously.
Hit List reveals facts and theories about the suspicious deaths of:
- Jimmy Hoffa
- Mary Pinchot Meyer
- J. Edgar Hoover
- George de Mohrenschildt
- And dozens more!
Hit List is a fair examination of the evidence of each case, leading to (necessarily) different conclusions. The findings were absolutely staggering; as some cases were clearly linked to a "clean-up operation" after the murder of President Kennedy, while others were the result of "other forces". The impeccable research and writing of Richard Belzer and David Wayne show that if the government is trying to hide anything, they're the duo who will uncover it.
