Book Review: “Dr. Mary’s Monkey” – Edward Haslam
Let me begin by saying this is an amazing book. For anyone who has any interest in the Kennedy assassination it is a MUST read if only for the shocking revelation at the end.
The story is a very believable (albeit unbelieveable) account by Mr. Haslam of his research into a secret program headed by a prominent cancer doctor by the name of Mary Sherman. The purpose of the program was to create a fast-acting, lethal cancer-causing virus, by genetically mutating monkey viruses with the ultimate goal of killing Fidel Castro! Sound familiar? Well, all hell breaks loose when a number of these viruses find their way into the first few years of Salk polio vaccinations given to millions of American children in the late 50s and early 60s. Got your attention yet?
Maybe one of the most astonishing aspects to this story is that Mary Sherman’s boss, a major player in national cancer research, provides her with an errand boy from a prominent Mafia Don in New Orleans. The name of this errand boy? Lee Harvey Oswald!
I hesitate to give away the whole story, but by the end of this book you will have some very radical new ideas about not only the Kennedy assassination, but also the possible origin of several cancers which plague the boomer generation.
The story is presented in a very clear, objective and credible voice and is an absolute MUST read for anyone who seeks to find where Conspiracy and Reality collide…
I have to say it again, this is a fascinating book!
