New book on JFK assassination coming in October

NEW YORK — The ever-disputed investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is getting a fresh look.
Former New York Times correspondent and best-selling author Philip Shenon has a book coming out this fall that alleges "powerful" people interfered with the Warren Commission's efforts to determine whether Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in shooting JFK in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
Publisher Henry Holt and Co. announced Thursday it will release the currently untitled book on Oct. 22, a month before the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination.
Shenon has disagreed with government leaders and government reports before. His 2008 best-seller, "The Commission," strongly criticized the officials tasked with investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and portrayed members of President George W. Bush's administration as inept in their approach to fighting terrorism.
