Publisher's Summary

The 1964 murder of a nationally known cancer researcher sets the stage for this gripping exposé of medical professionals enmeshed in covert government operations over the course of three decades. Following a trail of police records, FBI files, cancer statistics, and medical journals, this revealing book presents evidence of a web of medical secret-keeping that began with the handling of evidence in the JFK assassination and continued apace, sweeping doctors into coverups of cancer outbreaks, contaminated polio vaccine, the arrival of the AIDS virus, and biological weapon research using infected monkeys.

What made the experience of listening to Dr. Mary's Monkey the most enjoyable?

It's like riding a runaway freight train. You ask yourself over and over WHO'S DRIVING THIS THING AND WHERE ARE WE HEADED? The only problem is you need at the very least an active interest in the JFK assassination. You really need to know who the characters are and it's crucial that you care. It's such a bizarre take on what may have happened in Dallas that a wide open mind is essential. But the story is amazing and the read is excellent.

Excellent Expose' of American History

What did you love best about Dr. Mary's Monkey?

This is not a conspiracy theory book - it can't be because it is backed up by so many facts. A few suppositions are made, but when you see the steps taken to those conclusions - you have to open your eyes to possibilities you never thought could be! Agree or disagree, this book is very revealing and explains a lot of the secrets (mostly medical ones) our government has been keeping... and why. And after you are so amazed and taken back by one conspiracy... titillating facts about another one arises. I loved this book and I hated it. I wanted to scream in frustration and anger, not at the author - at this country! I heard it twice and I bought the hard copy for underlining and marking relevant passages. Be prepared to have a major paradigm shift. Everyone should read this book!

mind blowing - had to keep listening

Gives a real insight into 1950s America, germ warfare and the death of Kennedy. None of which I thought I was remotely interested in before coming across this audio book. Now I feel compelled enough to learn more. Loved it!

Totally absorbing

You need to focus to follow some of the threads, but Haslam himself writes clearly while showing his own 'workings out' of what ends up being an account of him trying to solve a personal puzzle which leads all the way back to historical events of huge import. I came away feeling I need to question my scepticism when it comes to conspiracy theories. Excellent performance too.
