MARY'S MOSAIC - Truth is Stranger than Fiction

Mary's Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace - Peter Janney, Dick Russell

In "MARY'S MOSAIC", Peter Janney shares with the reader his 30-year odyssey and carefully meticulous endeavor to determine whom were responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963 and the murder a year later on a public towpath shortly after noon in Washington DC of his close friend and lover Mary Pinchot Meyer.


At face value, one will wonder: Who was Mary Pinchot Meyer? Well, there was much more to Mary Pinchot Meyer than meets the eye. Indeed, like President Kennedy, she came from a privileged background and had met him when both were in their teens. They moved around in similar social circles for the following couple of decades. Mary Pinchot Meyer was a very smart, shrewd, attractive woman who knew her own mind -- and was unafraid to speak truth to power. But it wasn't until 1961 that President Kennedy and Mary Pinchot Meyer (by then divorced from Cord Meyer, a high-ranking CIA official) developed a closer, discreet relationship. "MARY'S MOSAIC" looks into Meyer's "explorations with psychedelic drugs" and the influence she wielded over President Kennedy in turning him away from a Cold War mindset "toward the pursuit of world peace."


"MARY'S MOSAIC" is a book that will challenge a reader's assumptions about the pervasive power and influence the CIA has exerted in the U.S. government since its creation in 1947, as well as what manner of democratic government we have in the U.S. I advise any reader to come to this book with an open mind, for its content is weighty, explosive, and profoundly revelatory.
