Today marks 50 years since the assassination of JFK.
Remarkably, we find ourselves no closer to piecing the puzzle together than we did on that day fifty years year, when Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested 90 minutes after the shooting and declared himself a patsy to millions of television viewers.
No closer, that is, until now.
In Colin McLaren’s The Smoking Gun, we discover one of the most compelling and convincing theories surrounding the events of that day to ever be explored…
On 22nd November 1963, the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and his wife Jackie were taking part in a presidential motorcade through Dallas.
Thousands lined the streets cheering; others hung out of windows to catch a glimpse of the much-loved First Lady and President.
Suddenly, the unthinkable. Three shots: bang…bang, bang rang out.
In front of the world, John F Kennedy was fatally wounded. Lee Harvey Oswald was caught. But did he pull the trigger?
Who really killed JFK?
Fifty years after the tragic events in Dallas, JFK: The Smoking Gun solves the ultimate cold case. With the forensic eye of a highly regarded ex-cop, Colin McLaren has gathered the evidence, studied 10,000 pages of transcripts, and found the witnesses the Warren Commission failed to call, and the exhibits and testimonies that were hidden, until now.
JFK: The Smoking Gun proves, once and for all, who did kill the President.
And the answer is far more shocking than any fanciful conspiracy could ever be.
