“Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J. D. Tippit” by Joseph McBride (2013)- essential!
5 out of 5 stars
A Master Work! July 23, 2013
By Vince Palamara
Every once in a while, a book comes along that is not merely a book, a good book, or even, for that matter, a great book, but what I am fond of calling a master work. “Into The Nightmare” by Joseph McBride is just such a rare commodity: a master work on the assassination that is very well written (even poetic at times), thought provoking, and well researched. Clearly, the author is passionate about both President Kennedy (having met the man several times in younger days) and his tragic assassination. This passion comes through, loud and clear, on every page, but without the shrill tone common in many books on this subject. In short, this volume was written with loving care, encompassing every facet of the case, including the murder of police officer J.D. Tippit, an area that usually receives short shrift in the literature of the assassination.
Along with other such master works as Jim Douglass “JFK & The Unspeakable” and Doug Horne’s 5-volume”Inside The ARRB”, McBride’s book is an essential purchase and essential reading. This one is a keeper; a book you will refer back to again and again. They don’t make them like this very often. Get this very fine volume asap- you’ll be glad you did.
