Lone gunmen, beware!
Belz hit a home run with this book. Do you think Oswald was a patsy? That the moon landing was filmed on a sound stage in Hollywood? That the men in black have paid you a visit? This is the book for you. As a fan of Richard Belzer's standup work, and later his character on SVU, I was tickled to see this book in the audible "stacks". It doesn't disappoint.
Belzer's delightfully acerbic, and surprisingly compelling, paranoia shines here. Whether talking about the Kennedy assasination (which he devotes more than half of the book to) or the cover-up of alien encounters, Belz injects each argument with enough common sense, humor and (partially) plausible evidence to make the book both engaging and thought-provoking.
I listened to this poolside during a recent vacation and it made an excellent diversion. If you're looking for Anna Karenina, this won't be the book for you. On the other hand, if you enjoyed the x-files, have an open mind, and think Oliver Stone may have been on to something, pick this one up.

I have just bought the audible book and only listened to maybe 15 minutes of it. Im sure the book is great but im finding it very hard to listen to with the sound effects and the tinny sound of his voice. It sounds like the reader is in the bathroom or somewhere and is in a hurry to read it.
