Was What’s My Line TV Star, media icon, and crack investigative reporter and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen murdered for writing a tell-all book about the JFK assassination? If so, is the main suspect in her death still at large?
These questions and more are answered in former CNN, ESPN, and USA Today legal analyst Mark Shaw’s 25th book, The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. Through discovery of never-before-seen videotaped eyewitness interviews with those closest to Kilgallen and secret government documents, Shaw unfolds a “whodunit” murder mystery featuring suspects including Frank Sinatra, J. Edgar Hoover, Mafia Don Carlos Marcello and a "Mystery Man" who may have silenced Kilgallen. All while by presenting through Kilgallen's eyes the most compelling evidence about the JFK assassinations since the House Select Committee on Assassination’s investigation in the 1970s.
Called by the New York Post, “the most powerful female voice in America,” and by acclaimed author Mark Lane the “the only serious journalist in America who was concerned with who killed John Kennedy and getting all of the facts about the assassination,” Kilgallen’s official cause of death reported as an overdose of barbiturates combined with alcohol, has always been suspect since no investigation occurred despite the death scene having been staged. Shaw proves Kilgallen, a remarkable woman who broke the "glass ceiling" before the term became fashionable, was denied the justice she deserved, that is until now.
Lots of Effort For Little Return
It is readily apparent that the author spent considerable effort and time to bring this book to print.
Unfortunately for the reader it is lost time and expended effort.
But I was impressed how the author could present the same facts over and over again in so many different ways. Gives redundancy a whole new meaning.
Then there was the personal statements about what could have happened and who could have set the events in motion. Similar to playing the game of “CLUE” ——- Colonel Mustard, in the library, with the lead pipe.
Then again, if you have no knowledge of the event, and are young enough to think of this as “ancient history”, it may be a good read for you ——— that is if you like repetition and supposition.
As a child of the fifties and sixties I was fascinated by this book and could not put it down. I certainly hope the JFK and Kilgallen cases are reopened in my lifetime. We want to know! However, whoever proof read the manuscript did a poor job. I have never read a book with misspelled words, letters transposed and grammatical errors. Other than that a great book.
