State Secret, by Bill Simpich

The Mary Ferrell Foundation is pleased to announce the online serialization of a new book by Bill Simpich. State Secret: Wiretapping in Mexico City, Double Agents, and the Framing of Lee Oswald delves deeply into the strange story of the Oswald Mexico City trip two months before the assassination. With a focus on the wiretap operation and the curious manipulation of CIA information on Oswald, and based on voluminous research using the MFF's CIA records, Bill presents a compelling new analysis of this mysterious event.

The book is being released fifty years after the events of September 27, 1963, when monitors at a joint US/Mexico intercept station received wiretap reports about a strange American visitor to the Soviet and Cuban consulates in Mexico City.

State Secret will be serialized a chapter at a time starting with today's publication of the book's Preface, with a new chapter appearing weekly. Over the coming several weeks, the full book will become available online.
