The author and a team of assistants interviewed over 400 people for this reconstruction of the life of Kennedy's assassin. Epstein does not charge any agency, foreign or domestic, with responsibility for Oswald's act, but he suggests that Oswald was far more involved with Soviet intelligence operations than the Warren Commission concluded. He does indict the FBI for covering up its own incompetence.
