JFK, RFK, and Teddy: Curse Or Conspiracy?
The assassination of John F. Kennedy remains one of the most profound historical mysteries of our time. Was Lee Harvey Oswald the sole gunman? Or was he part of a complex conspiracy that also orchestrated the tragedies that struck down Kennedy friends and family: Teddy Kennedy, whose presidential ambitions would be forever ruined by scandal, and Bobby Kennedy, whose political promise would end with an assassin’s bullet? Was Marilyn Monroe’s demise suicide, as officials claimed, or was it homicide, meant to silence her or to destroy the two elder Kennedy brothers by involving them in murder?
From renowned investigative author and Kennedy expert Matthew Smith comes the first book to offer a plausible theory based on direct witness testimony. Packed with startling disclosures, this riveting exposé
- Traces a far-reaching plot to prevent the Kennedys from attaining future presidential power
- Sheds new light on whether Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone—and whether Sirhan Sirhan did the same when he killed Robert Kennedy
- Links the JFK/RFK assassinations with Mary Jo Kopechne’s drowning—the tragedy that destroyed Teddy Kennedy’s presidential aspirations
- Offers first-time evidence that Kopechne’s death was a deliberate ploy to keep Edward Kennedy out of the White House
Conspiracy casts blistering light upon the theory that something greater than chance or dark destiny informed the Kennedy tragedies. It spares no one and no agency: not the FBI, not the Mafia, not the Teamsters. And it offers stunning answers to questions that have stirred dispute, ignited controversy, and haunted the national conscience for nearly half a century.
