"The Cold War is often celebrated as a great Western victory that was won without firing a shot. James Johnston's extensive research and exceptional writing reminds us that a lot of shots were fired. This important story contains lots of lessons learned for Americans honest enough to read and remember its details."--Bob Kerrey, former U.S. senator from Nebraska-- (09/17/2018)
"Many an author has entered the historical thicket that surrounds John F. Kennedy and his administration's adventures in Cuba. None, however, match James Johnston's thoroughness of research, lucid writing, and balanced assessment of the president's obsession and its haunting implications."--Loch K. Johnson, author of Spy Watching: Intelligence Accountability in the United States-- (09/17/2018)
"James Johnston offers a thorough analysis of the newly released JFK assassination papers. Readers may draw their own conclusions, but one lesson is clear: the American intelligence community must always strive to be transparent and maintain the public's trust."--David L. Boren, former U.S. senator and president emeritus of the University of Oklahoma-- (09/17/2018)
"Murder, Inc. is an outstanding, well-researched probe that holds many questions, unexpected findings, and evidence-based examination of not just JFK's operations, but the CIA's involvements overseas. It should be in collections strong in JFK and political history alike."--Diane Donovan, Donovan's Bookshelf--Diane Donovan "Donovan's Bookshelf "
