The CIA Makes Science Fiction Unexciting #6

(Microcosm) Abner Smith’s in-depth, sometimes sympathetic biography of Lee Harvey Oswald deviates a bit from some of the more extreme titles in this series as the writer uses a casual, conversational tone to soberly process and present the voluminous available info on Oswald. He fans the flames that have burned in countless conspiracy theorists, but Smith never drinks any particular Konspiracy-Ade himself. Also, in this book it’s the FBI who comes off as more stranger-than-fiction than the CIA.
