A father's last confession to his son about the CIA, Watergate, and the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy, this is the remarkable true story of St. John Hunt and his father E. Howard Hunt, the infamous Watergate burglar and CIA spymaster. In Howard Hunt's near-death confession to his son St. John, he revealed that key figures in the CIA were responsible for the plot to assassinate JFK in Dallas, and that Hunt himself was approached by the plotters, among whom included the CIA's David Atlee Phillips, Cord Meyer, Jr., and William Harvey, as well as future Watergate burglar Frank Sturgis. An incredible true story told from an inside, authoritative source, this is also a personal account of a uniquely dysfunctional American family caught up in two of the biggest political scandals of the 20th century.

The Senior Hunt was a lot of things during his government career. The son writes as much as he knows and has been told but I don't think it's all of the story.

Hunt was CIA and I don't doubt the CIA's involvement in a lot of activities but I still don't think we are getting some of the critical pieces of the puzzle as Saint John Hunt tries make sense of all the information he was given by his father.

To me, the most interesting part of the book concerns E Howard's wife (Saint John's mother) killed under mysterious circumstances in a plane crash.

While some details in this book are accurate, E. Howard Hunt was a (and I stress this first word) professional liar, that had been his career at the CIA, after all. David Atlee Phillips was the CIA's liaison to the House Select Committee on Assassinations (and at the time, none of the investigators knew or realized Phillips was the head of the CIA's disinformation division, their Western Hemisphere division chief), and when the investigators found the link between the JFK assassination and an element within the CIA, Atlee Phillips refused to testify further and walked out on the Committee, and the very next day the Committee was shut down, their report up until then taken, and major edits took place. Now THAT is history! If you don't know who Robert Tanenbaum was and is, you don't even begin to understand the fundamentals!
[Although I'm sure there might have been some involvement with the professional propagandist, Hunt, he was down the chain from David Atlee Phillips, George Joannides - - but definitely everything verifiable points to William Harvey as one of the participants. The real patriots and heroes were Eugene B. Dinkin who, although he wasn't murdered, his brain was so physically damaged by the CIA that he was never the same young intelligent man and college graduate who worked for NSA in the Army {he died in 2012 in a small trailer park in L.A.} and Lee Oswald, who successfully warned the White House of the first planned attempt in Chicago and that visit was called off, but failed in his second attempt at a warning in Dallas, where both the Secret Service and FBI offices were thoroughly compromised.]
