With the 40th anniversary of the death of John Kennedy approaching (yes, I know, I can’t believe it either), look for lots of stuff about his assassination and his love life. The first shot book seems to be the Triangle of Death by Brad O’Leary and L. E. Seymour. The title sounds cheesy to me, but the book sounds interesting. The authors claim to have recently declassified material, plus newly released tape recordings of Lyndon Johnson, and interviews with Mafia figures. The first intriguing accusation is the Kennedy planned the execution of South Vietnam’s president, and his own assassination was in retaliation. The triangle bit has to do with the three groups involved in the killing. Of course, the French are involved.
