As the 54th anniversary of JFK's assassination draws near, readers of this firsthand account from the morgue at Bethesda Naval Hospital will question the government's official story

At the Cold Shoulder of History gives an in-depth look at what happened in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. One of the only living participants in President Kennedy's autopsy now comes forward after almost 54 years of silence and speaks about what truly took place inside of the morgue at Bethesda Naval Hospital on the night of November 22, 1963. Jenkins gives a detailed account about the procedures performed on the President's remains. What he learned that night led him to believe there was a conspiracy in the murder of the 35th President of the United States and caused him to undertake his own personal journey into the labyrinth of the assassination.


"Even if you are not a fan of conspiracy theories, you will be convinced after you read this book. In fact, I think this book will turn the entire world of the Kennedy assassination upside-down." —Mike Michelsen, freelance writer in Southern California

James Curtis Jenkins was born in 1943. After enlisting in the United States Navy he won a place at the Medical Technology School that was part of Bethesda Naval Hospital, where John F. Kennedy's body was taken the day of his assassination. Along with fellow students, he was asked to assist in the autopsy of Kennedy. William Matson Law has been researching the Kennedy assassination for more than 25 years. Results of that research have appeared in more than 30 books, including Douglas Horne's magnum opus Inside the Assassination Records Review Board. Law is the producer of the the award-winning documentary RFK, writer, director/producer of the film The Gathering, served as consultant to director Brian McKenna for his theatrical film Killing Kennedy, and worked extensively with bestselling author Matthew Smith's upcoming book about the death of Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn: Murder by Proxy? Or How Murder Became Suicide In The Three Missing Hours. Law is the author of In the Eye of History and is  working on a book about the murder of Robert F. Kennedy with the working title: Shadows and Light. He lives with his family in Central Oregon.
