About the Book
In 1993 Dan Marvin, who had been a captain in the U.S. Army Special Forces in 1965, was watching a 30th anniversary special on the Kennedy assassination. A list of 42 names scrolled by on the screen, each one a person who was connected to the JFK assassination and met a violent end. Marvin recognized a name -- William B. Pitzer, an officer at the National Naval Medical Center who allegedly committed suicide in 1966. Marvin went public, saying that in 1965 he was asked by the CIA to assassinate Pitzer.
Pitzer was in possession of film and photographs of head wounds taken at the NNMC's autopsy of JFK, showing that the fatal shot came from the front. Marvin's story about the CIA's 1965 interest in Pitzer, and the suspicious nature of the Pitzer "suicide" in 1966, plus the account of one Dennis David who claims to have seen the film and photo evidence in Pitzer's office the week after the 1963 assassination, all converge in this book. This is hardly the first JFK assassination book to suggest that the autopsy evidence presented more questions than answers, but it is probably the first to suggest a much deeper conspiracy surrounding that evidence. Unfortunately the end result of this book, despite the author's best efforts, is that we now have even more questions and fewer answers.
