Description
Although it was established to investigate the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Warren Commission's findings would generate more questions than answers. In writing this history of the investigation, Philip Shenon uncovered evidence that the CIA and FBI withheld or destroyed crucial information, ensuring that the most exhaustive homicide investigation of the 20th century would remain unsolved. With 35 pages of black and white photographs—including many rarely-seen images—this "persuasive, deeply researched account" (Washington Post) features such figures as Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, and the CIA's Allen Dulles and James Jesus Angleton.

"Sober and powerful.... Shenon, a former New York Times reporter, affords the reader access to the behind-the-scenes deliberations and dynamics that shaped a historic inquiry into a national trauma."—Publishers Weekly
