As someone who feels that Mark Fuhrman was railroaded during the OJ Simpson trial, I'm glad to see that he has been able to rebuild his life with some excellent true crime books; Murder in Greenwich is an excellent read. However, when it comes to the JFK Assassination, Fuhrman is clearly out of his league as he simply regurgitates the tired old arguments made by gatekeepers like Vincent Bugliosi and Gerald Posner. Presenting dubious evidence from the Warren Commission at face value, the book, which is only 200 pages long offers no new insight or any real critical examination. An example would be the "muscle tissue" argument that Fuhman/Bugliosi used to explain why Kennedy's head went backwards even though he was supposedly hit from a bullet from behind. If you want to see how bogus these charges are, read Head Shot.

I liked this book and the way the evidence is shown you would agree with the author but every book on this subject has a different spin and usually sounds convincing. As soon as I finished this book I heard a secret service man in the car behind Kennedy's accidentally fired the fatal shot. Fuhrmans book is worth the time it takes to read it though.
