What surprised me most when researching The Final Truth was that most experts today seem fixated on the first shot occurring around Zapruder frame Z160.  Yet nearly every witness (13 of whom I quote in the book, pp. 133‒136), including Secret Service Agents, county and city law enforcement officers and journalists all reported hearing “the first shot just as the President’s car was turning from Houston Street onto Elm Street, or in the process of completing its turn.”  That’s about six seconds earlier than Z160.  Once we accept this testimony instead of ignoring it, evidence begins to make sense and answers fall into place.  And once we know why the first shot was fired, we can learn when and where it was fired.  That part is not surprising at all.

Building upon previous discoveries is how scientific progress is made. Scientists don’t keep repeating the same experiments over and over for 50 years. They make certain assumptions and build upon them. My book The Final Truth solves the mystery of the JFK assassination by building upon the results of past research, bypassing the old conspiracy-or-Oswald arguments and looking forward rather than backward. It breaks abundant new ground and solidifies proof that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin.

The Final Truth: Solving the Mystery of the JFK Assassination

Text from the new Back Cover:

The Final Truth breaks significant new ground due to author Edward Bauer’s decades of hands-on experience in rifle competition and film editing.

For the first time, we now know the surprising answers to the greatest mystery of modern times— answers even the Warren Commission never told us.

This work exposes the complex conspiracy that erupted almost instantly to force the public into believing the ‘official’ story, including destruction of evidence, splicing of films and routine lying by our top government officials.

The Final Truth is a succinct, concise, yet easy-to-read account of how— and most importantly why— these historic events unfolded.


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

Why is The Final Truth paperback version in the 7x10-inch format?

There are five tables explaining the scientific underpinnings of our conclusions: the 3rd Shot Table, the 2nd Shot Table, the Sound Travel-Time Table, the Frame Comparison Table and the Jiggle Range Table.  To fit legibly on the printed page, these tables require a minimum page width, including margins, of seven inches.

There are also several satellite views and maps highlighting the routes Oswald took and would have taken in his attempted escape.  The detail provided by these illustrations requires the larger page format.

Here are just 3 of a long list of reasons why there was no shooter on the Grassy Knoll:

1. No experienced marksman would try to hit a target moving perpendicular; it is the most difficult angle.  A moving target should be moving toward or away from the shooter, the position in which Oswald placed himself.

2. Railroad Switch Controller Lee E. Bowers, Jr. had a perfect view of the fence atop the grassy knoll.  He confirmed, “There was no one there at the moment that the shots were fired.”

3.  And from The Final Truth:

The debate rages.  What happened to the first shot, the shot that ‘missed’?

One of the many major pieces of new evidence in my book The Final Truth is the jiggle analysis of four films: Mark Bell, Robert Hughes, Tina Towner and Elsie Dorman.  There are pronounced camera shakes from that mysterious ‘missed’ first shot which triangulate back to the southeast corner of the sixth floor of the TSBD.  But much earlier than most believe.

There are no camera shakes triangulating back to the grassy knoll, the triple underpass or anywhere else.

As explained in The Final Truth, discussion of this national tragedy has fallen into two camps: the conspiracy theorists (CT) and the lone nut Oswald theorists (LN).  Yet those passionate debaters fail to understand that it’s more complex than that.  To solve this powerful mystery, we must divide it into two distinct parts: the assassination itself and the post-assassination investigations. 

The overwhelming preponderance of evidence proves that Lee Harvey Oswald was the sole assassin.  Yet the overwhelming preponderance of evidence also proves that a complex conspiracy erupted almost instantly to force us to believe the ‘official’ way of thinking including destruction of evidence, splicing of films and routine lying by the highest government officials.

Did Dealey Plaza witnesses see “puffs of smoke” coming from the grassy knoll?  Thanks to Paul Vieille and Alfred Nobel, guns haven’t made puffs of smoke since the 19th century, except on television and in the movies.  From The Final Truth: “So either a professional assassin was attempting to assassinate the President of the United States with a musket or the witnesses were imagining things.”

The day after Jack Ruby shot Lee Oswald, the Dallas Times Herald ran this news article on the front page under the headline “Anonymous Call Forecast Slaying During Transfer”:

“An anonymous telephone call to Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters at 2:15 a.m. warned that Leo [sic] Harvey Oswald would be killed during his transfer from the city lockup to county jail.  The FBI said it immediately relayed the warning to police and the sheriff’s office. … Sheriff Bill Decker said his dispatcher received the call from the FBI just after 2:15 a.m.  The city police dispatcher said the call never came to his attention.  It could not be determined if it was routed to another office or official.”

Why did no one in local law enforcement follow up on this warning?  Original research in The Final Truth explains the real reason Ruby killed Oswald.

Q: What makes The Final Truth unique as the first and only book to solve the JFK assassination?

 A: Author Edward Bauer’s decades of hands-on experience in both rifle marksmanship and film editing make this work unique.  Real-world knowledge of both disciplines is absolutely necessary in solving this crime.  Other books were just theorizing with no practical training to back up their theories.

The Final Truth:
Solving the Mystery of the JFK Assassination

The answer was complex but always within reach.  There was no conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.  A malcontent with a political agenda and the skill to do something about it, Lee Harvey Oswald was that ‘lone nut.’  He acted alone.  He fired all the shots.  Yet at that instant, the collusion, the lies and the cover-up began.  While echoes of his fatal third shot were still resonating through Dealey Plaza, a deep-rooted conspiracy erupted forcing us to believe the ‘official’ way of thinking including destruction of evidence, splicing of films and routine lying by the highest government officials.

The Final Truth solves this great mystery with breakthrough never-before-published original research and analyses, overturning much of what we know about the JFK assassination.  It’s perfect for those who want a relatively short, informal, easy-to-read book that covers all the important facts.  One expert called it “the best JFK assassination book I ever read.”
