A tremendous researcher, although perhaps not the most interesting of writers, still, this is an important book in the annals of financial history and assassination. Clearly, Bellingham was receiving payments from a most interesting source (Percival, the British prime minister, signed the law forbidding British ports to be used in slave-trading, which hurt the rich back then, tremendously), which leads one to those money trails of the Lincoln assassination (private bankers), the John F. Kennedy assassination (his major differences with the Wall Streeters and super-rich, David Rockefeller, the Morgan and Mellon and du Pont and Harriman families, and so forth), and how Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated right after he took up the call for workers' rights AND his anti-Vietnam War stance, while Sen. Bobby Kennedy might have shed light on both those assassinations, and had to be silenced as well (plus, Bobby's anti-war stance also).
