There are some things they don't want us to know about the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and John Lennon. Finally someone exposes the conspiracy to keep conspiracies a secret; Richard Belzer quotes, "I wrote this book to inspire you to do what the powers that be wish you wouldn't: to question authority...and to keep an eye out for Elvis." Belzer is known for playing the role of Detective Munch in Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit, yet in real life he is a real detective in digging up buried facts and destroying popular misconceptions involving everything from the JFK assassination to the existence of UFO's.
Some of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups are noted in this book. It's not to get you to believe every conspiracy theory written though, so Belzer states, "I didn't write this book to give you all the answers." Therefore, you can do more research yourself if needed; many mysteries are still being evaluated specifically about the ancient order of the Freemason's and evidence of extraterrestrial experimentation.
