Through discovery of never-before-seen videotaped eyewitness interviews with those closest to Kilgallen and secret government documents, Shaw unfolds a “whodunit” murder mystery featuring suspects including Frank Sinatra, J. Edgar Hoover, Mafia Don Carlos Marcello and a "Mystery Man" who may have silenced Kilgallen.

THE REPORTER WHO KNEW TOO MUCH: THE MYSTERIOUS DEATH OF "WHAT'S MY LINE" TV STAR AND MEDIA ICON DOROTHY KILGALLEN by Mark Shaw

This is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963.

Dorothy was the premier investigative reporter of her time. She was the only news-person to get an exclusive interview with alleged Mob hit-man Jack Ruby in his Dallas jail cell.

Many assassination investigators feel she got a little too close to finding out who was really behind the slaying and thus paid with her life.

Did Kilgallen really commit suicide with sleeping pills or was she "suicided" by someone who wanted to be sure she didn't break the JFK assassination story "wide open," as Dorothy boasted to friends she was about to do.

We won't exactly know the identity of the killer by the time we reach the end of the book, but we will be certain this was no accidental death.
