On 22nd November 1963, the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and his wife Jackie were taking part in a presidential motorcade through Dallas. Thousands lined the streets cheering; others hung out of windows to catch a glimpse of the much-loved First Lady and President. Suddenly, the unthinkable: three shots - bang...bang, bang - rang out. In front of the world, John F Kennedy was fatally wounded.
Lee Harvey Oswald was caught.
But did he fire the fatal bullet?
Who REALLY killed JFK?
Fifty years after the tragic events in Dallas, JFK: THE SMOKING GUN solves the ultimate cold case. With the forensic eye of a highly regarded ex-cop, Colin McLaren gathered the evidence, studied 10,000 pages of transcripts, discovered the witnesses the Warren Commission failed to call, and uncovered the exhibits and testimonies that were hidden until now. What he found is far more outrageous than any fanciful conspiracy theory could ever be.
JFK: THE SMOKING GUN proves, once and for all, who did kill the President.
'A compelling case'
'Comprehensive and compelling'
Colin McLaren was one of Australia's finest detectives; he travelled the world on high-end investigations during the 1980s and 1990s. He faced down the underbelly of Australian crime and his work has been the subject of many police genre documentaries and television series. A film of his hugely successful first book, INFILTRATION, the true story of his efforts as an undercover cop, was made in 2011. Colin writes constantly and is a regular advisor to TV and cinema productions. His investigation into JFK's death has been exhaustive: he spent 4.5 years on his cold case study and forensic analysis of all the testimonies and police reports to uncover the truth. He made a powerful US-based documentary about JFK's murder that screened worldwide in 2013 - the fiftieth anniversary of the President's death.
