Description

Gaeton Fonzi's masterful retelling of his work investigating the Kennedy assassination for two congressional committees is required reading for students of the assassination and the subsequent failure of the government to solve the crime. His book is a compelling postmortem on the House Select Committee on Assassinations, as well as a riveting account of Fonzi's pursuit of leads indicating involvement in the assassination by officers of the Central Intelligence Agency.First released in 1993, The Last Investigation was a landmark book upon its release. More than merely an indictment of the Committee's work, Fonzi tells the story of the important leads he developed as an investigator, which sent him into the milieu of Kennedy-haters among anti-Castro exiles and CIA officers. In this highly readable book, the author follows the trail to formerly obscure CIA officers such as David Atlee Phillips and David Morales. New records declassified under the JFK Records Act have only added to the dark questions raised here.

Review quote

"Gaeton Fonzi brings to the continuing puzzlement over the JFK murder a Chandleresque hardness and wonderment, a sense of a lonely man walking down a dark street, fighting the demons of official power, a loner who was aborted by the Congress at the lip of light." --Oliver Stone "Historians and researchers consider Mr. Fonzi's book among the best." "A rarity among Kennedy assassination books." --Senator Richard Schweiker Gaeton Fonzi brings to the continuing puzzlement over the JFK murder a Chandleresque hardness and wonderment, a sense of a lonely man walking down a dark street, fighting the demons of official power, a loner who was aborted by the Congress at the lip of light. --Oliver Stone Historians and researchers consider Mr. Fonzi's book among the best.
