Praise for Legacy of Secrecy: "Explosive new material, based mainly on government documents from the National Archives." --Vanity Fair "Waldron and Hartmann offer convincing evidence ... A riveting take on the assassination itself and the devastating results of government secrets, this account proves the continuing relevancy and importance of seeking the truth behind one of the US's most personal tragedies." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "I believe Waldron's heavy-to-lift book is actually all but the last word on these troubling assassinations which have been so wildly speculated about since 1963 ... Lamar Waldron, indefatigable public servant and author deserves his own Pulitzer Prize for his great work." --Liz Smith, New York Post "They've done a service by digging up the deepest, darkest, most disturbing archival evidence to support their Mob hit theory." --Ron Rosenbaum "Staggering!" --Mark Crispin Miller "Exhaustively researched" --The New York Observer "[Legacy of Secrecy contains] over 800 pages of intricately documented data. Their findings add pieces to one of our most perplexing puzzles, and suggest where the key missing pieces may be found." --Ronald Goldfarb, The Daily Beast
