Case Closed
Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK
Gerald Posner - 2003-09-09 (first published in 1993)
Goodreads Rating
The Assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, has inspired various speculative theories. However, in Gerald Posner's landmark book, he examines all the available evidence and comes to the only possible conclusion: Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. Case Closed remains the classic account against which all books about JFK's death must be measured.
