Left Coast Writers® Book Party at the Ferry Plaza

Focusing for the first time on why attorney general Robert F. Kennedy wasn't killed in 1963 instead of on why President John F. Kennedy was, Mark Shaw offers a stunning and provocative assassination theory in his latest book The Poison Patriarch: How the Betrayals of Joseph P. Kennedy Caused the Assassination of JFK  ($24.95) that leads directly to the family patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy. Mining fresh information and more than forty new interviews, Shaw weaves a spellbinding narrative involving Mafia don Carlos Marcello; Jack Ruby (Lee Harvey Oswald's killer); Ruby's attorney, Melvin Belli; and, ultimately, the Kennedy brothers and their father.

Mark Shaw is a California attorney turned author after careers as a Midwestern criminal defense lawyer, newspaper co-publisher, and television personality. He has written over 20 books such as Stations Along the Way: The Spiritual Transformation of Former Hitler Youth Leader Ursula Martens, Down for the Count, and Larry Legend.
