At first blush, "The Kennedy Assassination Tapes" sounds like the title of an Oliver Stone-inspired conspiracy theory disclosing secret recordings of a cabal that killed the president. But Max Holland's third book is the polar opposite, a sober and careful study, mostly of LBJ's White House conversations about many topics related to JFK's murder.
