This is the story-both frightening and fascinating-about a journey to seek the truth in the assassination of Pres. John F. Kennedy. The author's search for Victoria Elizabeth Adams, a disregarded yet key witness in the event that shaped our nation, led him to a dark opposition of history's official record.
Adams worked on the fourth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. She was on the back staircase of the building at the precise moment that Lee Harvey Oswald-according to the Warren Commission's account-was making his escape. However, Adams saw and heard no one. Belittled by the Warren Commission and fearing for her life, she vanished into obscurity rather than speak out about the truth.
After a three-decade quest and an array of obstacles, the author found Adams and brings to light her full story for the first time. Included in this narrative are the testimonies of Adams and other forgotten witnesses, along with extensive research suggesting that Oswald was not on the sixth floor when Kennedy was shot. Was Oswald truly the assassin, or was America deceived?
