He was then in 1965 an undergraduate at Cornell writing a thesis on the subject of how the government establishes truth. A decade later he d interviewed eighty of Oswald’s acquaintances for his became his best-selling classic, Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald. Now in The Assassination Rhumba he explores what he considers the final mystery of the Kennedy assassination: Did the CIA set in motion an assassination plot in Brazil that accidently resulted in the tragedy in Dallas on November 22,1963?What the Warren Commission did not know when it wrote its report on the assassination in 1964 was that there were two, not one, jackals, in play in November 1963. The second jackal had been sponsored by the CIA to kill Castro. This intelligence operation was such a closely-held state secret that when the CIA’s Inspector-General’s wrote a report on it in 1967, all the copies , except one, was destroyed, and the three men involved in writing it were sworn to an oath of silence. Epstein now reveals that the deadly dance between two intelligence services, America’s CIA and Cuba’s DGI, backfired.PRAISE FOR LEGEND: THE SECRET WORLD OF LEE HARVEY OSWALDA fascinating, alarming, and enormously significant book on the mystery of Lee Harvey Oswald” -- The New York Times Book ReviewOne of the years most important books.-- The Wall Street Journal
