Audible Editor Reviews

In this audio book, longtime Republican political operative Roger Stone makes a daring assertion about one of the most pivotal moments in American history.

Featuring a measured performance by David Rapkin, The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ presents the theory that the CIA conspired with the Mafia and Texas oil men to kill Kennedy and install Lyndon Johnson as the president. Although Stone's assertion will certainly be questioned, his firsthand knowledge of politics and politicians shines through in his writing.

Rapkin's calm, conversational performance helps make Stone's contentious claims feel slightly less hyperbolic.

Publisher's Summary

Lyndon Baines Johnson was a man of great ambition and enormous greed, both of which, in 1963, would threaten to destroy him. In the end, President Johnson would use power from his personal connections in Texas and from the underworld and from the government to escape an untimely end in politics and to seize even greater power. President Johnson, the thirty-sixth president of the United States, was the driving force behind a conspiracy to murder President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. In The Man Who Killed Kennedy, you will find out how and why he did it. Political consultant, strategist, and Libertarian Roger Stone has gathered documents and used his firsthand knowledge to construct the ultimate tome to prove that LBJ was not only involved in JFK's assassination, but was in fact the mastermind. With 2013 being the fiftieth anniversary of JFK's assassination, this is the perfect time for The Man Who Killed Kennedy to be available to readers. The research and information in this book is unprecedented, and as Roger Stone lived through it, he's the perfect person to bring it to everyone's attention.

    "Not Just Another Conspiracy Theory !"

    Did LBJ kill President Kennedy ? I don't as a rule believe in conspiracy theories. Nor do I believe LBJ killed President Kennedy. So why am I reading this book ? The simple answer is I like a good conspiracy theory and if there is one conspiracy theory that I do believe is that the original conclusions of the Warren Commission are false. My own view is that there was more than one assassin that shot dead Kennedy. There was probably two gunmen in the Depository building (one being Oswald) and one marksman behind the grassy knoll who fired the final and fatal bullet. Who was responsible for the plot to assassinate Kennedy ? One of the usual suspects, in my view: the Russians, Cubans, CIA, Johnson or the Mafia; take your pick. For me, the most likely suspects are the Russians, which is why there was a cover up to avoid a military confrontation at the height of the Cold War. This is an interesting book full of conjecture and all I will say is that it makes an argument that Johnson could have been behind Kennedy's murder, although, I don't personally believe it. You will probably take a different view to mine after reading this book.

    My rating 4/5. Interesting theory which many people now believe, however, I do not which is why I deduct 1 star. It could only get 5 stars if I believe LBJ did it. Nevertheless, I give it a high 4 stars because it provides a lot of information and also describes LBJ's hatred of the Kennedy's. It is also quite amusing as the author clearly cannot stand LBJ.

    "COMPELLING BOOK - THE CROOKS ARE IN POWER"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Highly recommended because it provides convinging evidence which shows that the Warren Commission was a complete white wash. Oswald was a distraction to prevent the real killers from being sought. The evidence is very clear in this regard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    the book is too long to go through in one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    The American people need to listen to this book and to rise up against the tyranical forces in power. This is disturbing but inaction will lead to tyrany and oppression.

    The government needs to come clean.

    Every American should read this book particularly those of us who lived through this

    "You'll Likely Be Convinced..."

    that LBJ did it. A great deal of circumstantial evidence. Though circumstantial, enough of it to make defending Johnson seem impossible. The story is interesting; however, it comes across as a bit of a research paper with a lot of name dropping.

    "Disturbingly Believable"
    Any additional comments?

    I try not to buy in to conspiracy theories and I only bought this audiobook because it was on sale and the reviews here and on other websites were pretty good, but wow!

    I kinda found it very believable.

    Certainly without doing my own research I have to take the author's facts at face value. But even if only 50% of the facts are accurate, LBJ certainly seemed like a man of massive ego and hugely questionable morals who certainly had the power, connections and motive to clear the way for his own presidency.

    It was certainly a very ugly period in US history and there are so many theories, so many movies, books and documentaries about the events, it can be hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. But this book read fresh and rigorous and I was left feeling uneasy and that he should have been at least a leading suspect in any true investigation.

    "Doesn't really deliver"

    There are a lot of interesting facts in this book. As a review of events surrounding the assassination of John Kennedy, it's a success. But as an indictment of LBJ, it falls very short. There are other books focused on LBJ that do a much better job.

    "great story, and sadly true"

    To think how deep the corruption was back then and how many people died just to hid the truth of LBJ's arrogance.To learn that it ran so deep too... including Nixon, Ford, & Bush, just to name a few. Are we safe yet... who knows.

    Story
    "Convoluted and choppy"
    What did you like best about The Man Who Killed Kennedy? What did you like least?

    The best thing is that it's a "kitchen sink" collection of every political scandal from 1959 to 1974. If you want to know who stuffed a ballot box or hired a prostitute then this book is a decent info dump.But, like many others, I found many of Stone's "facts" to be circumstantial claims and speculation.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    It is interesting how many of the players in the Bay of Pigs wound up involved in Watergate.The least interesting part is Stone's lack of a convincing argument. Since this is an audiobook I could not check sources, obviously, while driving, but I've read about a lot of these claims, and most ring hollow.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I did not have one.


    Was The Man Who Killed Kennedy worth the listening time?

    No, not really. However, none of my criticism is directed at the narrator, who did an excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    I kinda wish I had my money back.
