My BEST book (yes, I said it!) coming 9/1/18
I am going to really push this one, more than the other three combined: Facebook ads, etc. While I am proud of all four of my books, this one is my best- here is why:
-most diversified: covering Presidents McKinley thru and including Trump;
-over 100 agents over 100 years (not “just” about the assassination of JFK);
-NEW information on the agency (even for those familiar with my previous books);
-exciting, never-before-published information about various Secret Service agents, the Kennedy assassination, and more;
-both contemporary and historical; much to contemplate within
My first book SURVIVOR’S GUILT (my “classic” book, I suppose) is on the Secret Service in the context of the JFK assassination; my second book JFK: FROM PARKLAND TO BETHESDA is on the medical evidence in the JFK assassination; my third book THE NOT-SO-SECRET SERVICE, while covering the period from FDR to Reagan, moderately achieves a more wide-ranging outlook on the Secret Service…
However, WHO’S WHO IN THE SECRET SERVICE: HISTORY’S MOST RENOWNED AGENTS, covers more than double the time and presidential eras, is my longest book since my first one (over 300 pages) and, again, is my best one to date! I am super excited about this one!
The one book of mine I would have on a desert island? This one!
Don’t worry- you will hear A LOT more in the coming months (especially on the eve of publication). Stay tuned!
Vincent Palamara was born in Pittsburgh and graduated from Duquesne University with a degree in Sociology.
Although not even born when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, Vince brings fresh eyes to an old case. In fact, Vince would go on to study the largely overlooked actions - and inactions - of the United States Secret Service in unprecedented detail, as well as achieving a world's record in the process, having interviewed and corresponded with over 80 former agents (the House Select Committee on Assassinations had the old record of 46 with a 6 million dollar budget and subpoena power from Congress), not to mention many surviving family members, White House aides, and even quite a few Parkland and Bethesda medical witnesses for a corresponding project. The result was Survivor's Guilt: The Secret Service & The Failure To Protect President Kennedy.
Vince is also the author of the books JFK: From Parkland To Bethesda, The Not-So-Secret Service, Who's Who in the Secret Service, and Honest Answers about the Murder of President John F. Kennedy: A New Look at the JFK Assassination.
All told, Vince has been favorably mentioned in over 140 JFK and Secret Service related books to date (including two whole chapters in Murder in Dealey Plaza, The Secret Service: The Hidden History Of An Enigmatic Agency by Philip Melanson, and the Final Report of the Assassination Records Review Board, among many others), often at length, in the bibliographies, and in the Secret Service - and even medical evidence - areas of these works.
Vince has appeared on the History Channel's THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY (VHS and DVD), C-SPAN, Newsmax TV, A COUP IN CAMELOT (DVD/BLU RAY), KING KILL '63, THE MAN BEHIND THE SUIT (DVD), National Geographic's JFK: THE FINAL HOURS (including on DVD), PCN, BPTV, local cable access television, YouTube, radio, newspapers, print journals, at national conferences, and all over the internet. Also, Vince's original research materials, or copies of said materials, are stored in the National Archives (by request under Deed Of Gift by the ARRB), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Harvard University, the Assassination Archives and Research Center, and the Dallas Public Library.
Vince Palamara has become known (as he was dubbed by the History Channel in 2003) "the Secret Service expert." As former JFK Secret Service agent Joe Paolella proclaimed: "You seem to know a lot about the Secret Service, maybe even more than I do!" Agent Dan Emmett calls Vince a Secret Service expert in his new book.
