Book Presentation by Peter Janney
Mary's Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace.
Investigation of JFK mistress' murder leads author to the CIA . . . And his own father.
“A fascinating story... Peter Janney’s unsparing analysis moves us closer to a reckoning.”
- Oliver Stone
“Mary’s Mosaic reads like a John Grisham thriller crossed with an Oliver Stone movie. Its sprawling narrative offers spies galore, missing documents, a sprinkling of Georgetown glitter, Cold War geopolitics, and even a role for LSD guru Timothy Leary.”
- Joseph P. Kahn, Boston Globe, May 26, 2012.
“Mary's Mosaic is a story about intertwined destinies, about human strength and weakness, and finally about forces of good and evil. The book makes a reader consider those possibilities within each of us, even as what unfolds is on a Shakespearean stage.”
- Dick Russell, author of The Man Who Knew Too Much and On the Trail of the JFK Assassins.
