"Jean's a pretty terrific lady. She's rock-solid, a woman who speaks the truth. She's given me a bird's eye view of the Kennedy assassination. I believe her." Oliver Stone "Considering her proximity as an eyewitness in Dealey Plaza, her insider knowledge of the Dallas police, and her treatment by federal authorities, Jean Hill may well be the most important assassination witness alive today. Her story deserves close scrutiny by every citizen." Jim Marrs, author of Crossfire "Jean Hill is the one constant factor in the whole assassination story. She's a genuine patriot and her story is what America is all about." Jim Garrison, former New Orleans district attorney "Her tale is often engaging . . . the feisty schoolteacher emerges ultimately as something of a folk heroine." -Publishers Weekly JFK: The Last Dissenting Witness is the gripping story of Jean Hill's incredible ordeal which began when she saw a gunman on the famous grassy knoll fire the shot that exploded the president's skull.
