The author examines the life of Lee Harvey Oswald in the context of the Cold War climate of the times and the people who shaped and used him. Includes the solving of a precedent case along with many new revelations in the Kennedy assassination itself. The ineluctable conclusion is that Oswald was the patsy he claimed to be. The activities of Lee Harvey Oswald during his short life did not take place in a vacuum to be filled with plot scenarios purloined from Saturday Matinees. His was a real life, in a real world on the brink. And in that real world there were studies, policies, programs and overt and covert operations all pulling it either closer to the brink, or back from it. The trick was never to tip it over, but to perpetuate the feeling that it just might tip at any minute. From his time in New York City, there is a distinct pattern of activities fitting sweetly into just those curious little boxes. In the field of logic there is a fallacy known as cum hoc ergo propter hoc ("with this, therefore because of this"). Basically, it states that correlation does not imply cause and effect. However, logic also dictates that a long pattern of correlation considerably shortens the odds in favor of just such an implication. Noted statistician, Edward R Tufte, goes so far as to suggest that the oft-quoted maxim "correlation is not causation" is incomplete and therefore innacurate. According to Tufte, the shortest true statement that can be made about causality and correlation is, "correlation is not causation, but it sure is a hint." With that in mind, this book, where it is not concentrating on various types of evidence, is a journey through those correlations: hints for future inquiries to ponder and investigate.

Sweet Reunion Justin Barnes left Hope Falls ten years ago, in the dead of night, and didn't think he'd ever set foot there again. That was just fine with him, except for one little exception: Amanda Jacobs. He had fallen in love with her unruly blonde curls and sparkling sapphire eyes, but she had been a teenager then, too young for him to act on his attraction. When Justin receives a phone call that his former mentor has passed away, he knows he has to return to Hope Falls. Justin just has one question - will the girl that once adored him have grown into a woman that can't stand him? Or will she still be the only thing in the world that feels like home? Sweet Harmonies When Karina Black hit it big in music, she didn't think it would mean giving up her name, her friends, her family, and the music that she loved. It was time for change and that's just what the sexy, sassy Native American was looking for when she decided to move back home to Hope Falls. What she wasn't looking for was love... When Ryan Perkins moved to Hope Falls, he knew that it would mean helping his granny run her café and maybe allowing himself the time to indulge in his love for music. Beyond that, the rugged, sculpted charmer didn't expect anything more than the simplicity that the quiet community offered. What he didn't know was that Hope Falls offered much more than simplicity... Will Karina really be able to give up her pop star life and fight for the music she wants while also opening her heart to the sweet melody of love? Will Ryan be able to live in Karina's not so simple world? Or will they both stop the noise around them and make Sweet Harmonies of their own together? Sweet Victory Samantha Holt has spent her entire life focused on her career as an Olympic snowboarder - to the point that she's never even had a boyfriend. Now the auburn-haired beauty has taken an early retirement to focus on her personal life, which is about to get a lot more interesting when a sexy man from her past comes to town. Can she trust him enough to be her first? Luke Reynolds has moved back to the Sierra Nevadas to be closer to his family. A big bonus is the chance to finally be close to Samantha Holt, the girl he's been interested in for the entire ten years he's known her. Their snowboarding careers have put them in close proximity before, but Sam seems to have walls up when it comes to him. The bright blue eyes and sexy scruffiness that melt other womens' hearts seem to have no effect on her. Will Luke be able to show her that it's safe to let her guard down? Home Sweet Home Lauren Harrison didn't have time for games. Everything in its place. Everything in its order. Everything in its time. But the gorgeous, high-powered real estate agent was about to find out that when it comes to love, there were some things she couldn't control. Nothing in life comes easy. Ben Stevens knew this to be true from an early age. The handsome host of a successful real estate reality show knew all too well that he had what he had because he worked hard for it. His charming demeanor radiated from the screen, but behind the camera, he kept his real life out of the spotlight. After becoming co-hosts for a new real estate reality show, Lauren and Ben will both find out that sometimes there is more to someone than meets eye. Will Lauren be able to see the side of Ben that lives behind the camera? Will Ben get to see what's underneath Lauren's polished shell? Only time will tell if they can both find a home of their own within each other's hearts.
