Praise for Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald

About the Book
I covered that awful weekend in Dallas and always wondered what we would have learned if Oswald had lived to stand trial. Well, William Alsup has managed to make that happen. Using years of meticulous research, he not only brings Oswald into courtóhe brings in the late and legendary lawyer Percy Foreman to defend him. The result is a dramatic, fast-moving story as informative as it is compelling. No conspiracy theories here; the evidence against him is all based on fact and the defense Foreman presents is fascinating. This is a serious book that could only have come from a veteran jurist like Alsup. The bonus is itís also a great read.
An edgy, hard-boiled legal noir that dares to re-imagine the outcome of one of the most anguishing moments in our recent American history, and in the process gives us a courtroom drama full of twists and turns like no other. In Bill Alsupís hands, the trial of Lee Harvey Oswald becomes the trial of the century.
When Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald less than 48 hours after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Oswald, we lost our best chance to learn the full truth behind the crime of the century. With his fascinating and meticulously researched vision of the trial Oswald never had, Judge William Alsup gives us the next best thing. Alsupís fictional account is remarkably satisfying for those who yearn for what might have been.
