Denial of Justice: Dorothy Kilgallen, Abuse of Power, and the Most Compelling JFK Assassination Investigation in History
Dorothy Kilgallen is a world-renowned journalist working on the case of a lifetime. She is diligently researching the assassination of John F. Kennedy. She had covered the trial of Jack Ruby, the killer of alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. The assassination and the killing of Oswald are clouded in an enigmatic haze. The mystery deepens with the untimely death of Kilgallen in November 1965. The journalist and inquisitive co-star of “What’s My Line” was found dead in her home, her death ruled accidental. Kilgallen was an intrepid investigator who had news ink running in her bloodstream. Her initial success as a writer led to her own nationally syndicated column, Kilgallen covered high profile trials around the country, Her style was unflappable, her work could be hard-hitting. The body of work was admired by many colleagues. Her doubts about Warren Commission’s version of events shone through in her work. Kilgallen was about to enter a world of danger from which she wouldn’t emerge.
Denial of Justice is a follow-up to Mark Shaw’s The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. The work is a worthy sequel to the mysterious whodunit that snuffed out the brave reporter. “Denial of Justice” functions as a true crime thriller/autobiography that seeks to undo the label attached to Ms. Kilgallen’s untimely demise. Mark Shaw has done an admirable and exemplary job in his work. Do not miss!
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
