The Interloper: Lee Harvey Oswald Inside the Soviet Union

Peter Sadovnik (Basic Books)

It hardly seems possible, with all that is known about the Kennedy assassination, that there are still blank spots. But apparently there has been little detail compiled about Oswald's sojourn in the Soviet Union. Sadovnik rectifies this, interviewing and investigating previously untapped sources, and arrives at a convincing narrative and explanation for the tragedy.
