Comments:

Unlike many books exploring a single aspect of the Kennedy assassination conspiracy, Mafia Kingfish avoids the pitfall of giving a "pet theory" exclusive attention. This is a book about Carlos Marcello, not the CIA or the Cuban exiles with whom Marcello cooperated; but Davis at least does not hide the fact that the bigger picture is there. Mafia Kingfish also contains tidbits relevant to the Robert Kennedy assassination and the mafia corruption of Presidents Nixon and Johnson.
