UFOs, JFK and Elvis by Richard Belzer

belzer.jpg While Richard Belzer, aka John Much on Law and Order: SVU, was working on the television show Homicide: Life on the Street, he wrote UFO's, JFK and Elvis. Originally, I picked this up because I am such a Law and Order fan, and was quickly enthralled.

The book focuses on the JFK assassination and the conspiracy theories around that event. As someone who did not grow up during the Kennedy era, this book taught me lots about the assassination and conspiracies - something they do not teach you in school. I found myself talking to people about it, making notes and going to the internet to check the sources Belzer cites in his extensive bibliography.

The book also touches on if Elvis is really dead, aliens, and if man really has walked on the moon. These topics are not written on extensively, which I found to be a shame. His writing is very direct, fluid and sensible, making it easy to ponder his theories, if not actually believe them. Belzer has written other works as well and because of his writing style I cannot wait to read them!
