Knoll: The Last JFK Conspiracist

Who isn't intrigued by the mysterious shroud around the JFK assassination? When you dig into Knoll by Stephen Hillard, you just stepped into a thriller with many caveats to "stay in your own lane."

For Bus McIntyre,  the danger signs are acknowledged, but ignored.

The story begins in the west with McIntyre's career as an attorney. Due to his aspirations being extinguished, he begins an unlikely entry into a well-known presidential assassination.

McIntyre is tormented by past tragedies.  Relying on journal entries, he digs into the death of his father, a former cop. His father's journal which details  his own experiences leads Bus along a path of adventure tangled with the mob and further down the road into hidden conspiracies involving the death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

He diligently wants to recapture his father's footsteps and sets off to do so through direction he obtains from the journal, twists along the way, and also using a rogue spy's clues and internet presence.

Although the book had a slow start, it was pages spent on setting up the reader with much needed details: be patient. It allowed for reader input and imagination while taking you through the complex characters and players along with muddling through the vague evidence afforded to Bus. You have to know every angle before the plot thickens.

The Mafia presence is all over the case.

I have always been fascinated with the lack of public knowledge about JFK's assassination and the fact it was and still is surrounded by so many conspiracies. Who doesn't like problem solving or trying to figure out if the government covered up JFK's murder?
Excerpt from Part I: Voices
Knoll is chock full of information and details, which brought out the detective in me. I found myself googling characters and plots on my phone while reading the book. Is it fiction or is it like a true story only with disclaimers to make it appear like fiction? Maybe you should read it to draw your own conclusions. Or maybe Mr. Hillard tells you on his website. Go check it out.

Would the NSA have been capturing my keyword strokes? Probably not, but it was kind of fun supposing the PRISM issues would present themselves.

You have to pay attention. Each page changes the story. Still, Bus McIntyre managed to unravel a doozy. You might not think the ending was what you thought in the beginning. Isn't that the work of a great writer? Indeed.

Just as long as there are no black helicopters circling over the Harry Potter House, I think you're keystrokes are safe enough.
That sounds like a very intriguing read.
And probably makes Oliver Stones movie pale by comparison.

Stay safe down there, Kiddo.

I think I'll give this one a read. I don't believe the truth about the JFK assassination will be published in my lifetime, but I have two theories:

1. Oswald made the shot, but was supported by communist spies and sympathizers who were directed by Castro.

2. Oswald had help in the form of a U.S. sniper. The motivation was twofold - the end of the war in Vietnam (a lot of people were making a ton of money on that war) and the (I believe) real possibility that JFK might make a preemptive nuclear strike against the USSR. That last, if people believed it, would have provided motivation to eliminate JFK by violence.

So those are my own half-baked ideas. This sounds like a good read, and I can use a good read just now.

Of all the stories and investigations, the book "Mortal Error" appears to cover all the bases. All the odd occurrences that could never be adequately covered or were just ignored, were explained with no loose ends. Since it wasn't a conspiracy against the US or the Kennedy's, but entailed a Kennedy Family coverup, it got ignored by the public. Not lurid enough for the public, it seems. Sad story.
