about

Was What’s My Line TV Star, media icon, and crack investigative reporter and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen murdered for writing a tell-all book about the JFK assassination? If so, is the main suspect in her death still at large?

   These questions and more are answered in former CNN, ESPN, and USA Today legal analyst Mark Shaw’s 25th book, The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. Through discovery of never-before-seen videotaped eyewitness interviews with those closest to Kilgallen and secret government documents, Shaw unfolds a “whodunit” murder mystery featuring suspects including Frank Sinatra, J. Edgar Hoover, Mafia Don Carlos Marcello and a "Mystery Man" who may have silenced Kilgallen. All while by presenting through Kilgallen's eyes the most compelling evidence about the JFK assassinations since the House Select Committee on Assassination’s investigation in the 1970s.

   Called by the New York Post, “the most powerful female voice in America,” and by acclaimed author Mark Lane the “the only serious journalist in America who was concerned with who killed John Kennedy and getting all of the facts about the assassination,” Kilgallen’s official cause of death reported as an overdose of barbiturates combined with alcohol, has always been suspect since no investigation occurred despite the death scene having been staged. Shaw proves Kilgallen, a remarkable woman who broke the "glass ceiling" before the term became fashionable, was denied the justice she deserved, that is until now.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Riddled with typos and grammatical errors This book contains more typos than all my reviews combined! The late Dorothy Kilgallen had a very interesting life, and she deserves much better than this dreck. That said, it's not a biography of her. The author is convinced that 1) Kennedy was killed by/at the behest of the mob, 2) Dorothy was privy to some "juicy" information and was subsequently murdered, by means that were meant to look like a suicide. Like most conspiracy theorists, Mark Shaw cobbles together pieces of the story that fit his own preconceived narrative. It's just plain absurd to conclude Dorothy was that "high up" in any great plan to kill Kennedy. Other than that, it's just poorly written- countless spelling and syntax errors, and Shaw repeats himself throughout. Lousy book all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent read Well written and chock full of new facts. It was hard for me to put down. All tied in to the Kennedy assassination, the Lee H. Oswald murder, Jack Ruby and organised crime. Leaves precious little doubt as to whether or not Dorothy was murdered, and why.
