    Around five years back I read a book called The Murder of John Lennon by Fenton Bresler I gave it two stars on GR s and wrote a very short review a couple of years after reading I returned to the subject last year via internet podcasts One of my hobbies is collecting books that cover the lone nut killer, so I searched onfor a copy of Bresler s book Who Killed John Lennon is the same book as The Murder of John Lennon , I think the latter title is the U.K publication.Firstly, a Around five years back I read a book called The Murder of John Lennon by Fenton Bresler I gave it two stars on GR s and wrote a very short review a couple of years after reading I returned to the subject last year via internet podcasts One of my hobbies is collecting books that cover the lone nut killer, so I searched onfor a copy of Bresler s book Who Killed John Lennon is the same book as The Murder of John Lennon , I think the latter title is the U.K publication.Firstly, a word on the author Fenton Bresler was a British barrister with a criminal and civil legal practice He was also a successful journalist and tv pundit He published books on The Chinese Mafia in 1981 and this book in 1989 He died in 2003.As far as Lennon s killing is concerned, there was little, if any, investigation The authorities in New York had a clear open and shut case Any investigative journalists covering the story also seem to have concluded that Mark Chapman was a crazed fan or just another lone nut Throughout the 1980 s, Bresler was the only person to really dig into the facts and ask questions The result is a detailed time line study of Chapman and Lennon that culminates in the assassination outside the Dakota Building in December 1980 Bresler uncovers previously unknown details of Chapman s stalking Rather than some open and shut case, the British barrister probes the unresolved and disturbing details and asks logical questions that lead the reader into equally disturbing territory.It was those internet podcasts that suggested a named CIA link that caused me to re read Bresler s book Doorman, Jose Perdomo, is mentioned in the book as being on the scene of the murder, but little else.Below I have copied from Wikipedia on the Death of John Lennon The Dakota s doorman, ex CIA Agent Jose Sanjenis Perdomo, and a nearby cab driver saw Chapman standing in the shadows by the archway.There are many profound similarities between Chapman and Sirhan that point to Operation Artichoke and MK ULTRA Further reading is available with John Lennon Life,Times Assassination by Phil Strongman published by Bluecoat Press

    Bresler explores whether or not the murder of John Lennon was not the act of a lone nut but that of a programmed mind controlled assassin Although there s not enough evidence to prove it I have no problem believing that Chapman was programmed in some sort of mkultra cia mindwashing way The problem I have with this book is that Bresler does not drive home the point strong enough and doesn t delve into, even in a theoretical way, about the obvious holes in and questions about Chapmans backgrou Bresler explores whether or not the murder of John Lennon was not the act of a lone nut but that of a programmed mind controlled assassin Although there s not enough evidence to prove it I have no problem believing that Chapman was programmed in some sort of mkultra cia mindwashing way The problem I have with this book is that Bresler does not drive home the point strong enough and doesn t delve into, even in a theoretical way, about the obvious holes in and questions about Chapmans background From mysterious figures visiting Chapman at random times, to his work for the YMCA, which is known to often be used as a front for the CIA, his stays in various mental hospitals, to him being globetrotted around the world to some very off the wall location by the Y when he was just a very average to mediocre college kid dime a dozen employee Theres just too much that doesn t add up to deny that theresthan meets the eye with Chapman Another person that there isthan meets the eye with is Lennon himself There is even some feasable speculation that Lennon himself was under some sort of mind control and some people even claim that The Beatles didn t even write their own music I mean The Beatles were the tools for some of the biggest cultural social engineering in the past 100 years I find it hard to believe that The Beatles, even if they were unwitting tools, were not intentionally used by the power structure Lennon of course was getting very political in his last years, and its known he was being monitored by the FBI so they certainly feared his influence

    I was very disappointed in this book As an afficionado of conspiracy theories, I was quite ready to believe that Mark David Chapman hadn t acted alone in shooting John Lennon Alas, author Fenton Bresler doesn t prove anything in this book, which is also very poorly written I still think there are unanswered questions surrounding Lennon s death, but you won t find them answered in Who Killed John Lennon

    I read and reread this book several times.Unlike others here, that claim, the book is full of conspiracy theories, I don t agree to that at all.The book is written in a non sensational way by a British lawyer No nonsense facts, no conclusions, leaving it up to the reader to draw his own.It is chilling, fascinating and it makes complete sense, where the murder never did and less the person who committed the crime.It is so obvious, that America needed to get rid of a man, that was becoming way to I read and reread this book several times.Unlike others here, that claim, the book is full of conspiracy theories, I don t agree to that at all.The book is written in a non sensational way by a British lawyer No nonsense facts, no conclusions, leaving it up to the reader to draw his own.It is chilling, fascinating and it makes complete sense, where the murder never did and less the person who committed the crime.It is so obvious, that America needed to get rid of a man, that was becoming way too powerful and influential to handle Comparable with a Malcolm X before I recommend this book to every critical reader The average patriarch American most likely won t be able to accept, the most likely conclusion here

    Interesting read Makes you wonder how corrupt our government really is.

    OK, Chapman was a Manchurian Candidate He was the weapon, not the killer There were people who wanted Lennon dead This was a waste of time.

    This is the only book length treatment of the intriguing theory that there was a conspiracy behind John Lennon s assassination Fenton Bresler did meticulous research, and he documents it well, but he came up with next to nothing I did not open the book with the expectation that Bresler would prove his theory to be correct beyond a shadow of a doubt, but I thought that he would at least make a good circumstantial case that the preponderance of the evidence leaned in that direction Instead, he This is the only book length treatment of the intriguing theory that there was a conspiracy behind John Lennon s assassination Fenton Bresler did meticulous research, and he documents it well, but he came up with next to nothing I did not open the book with the expectation that Bresler would prove his theory to be correct beyond a shadow of a doubt, but I thought that he would at least make a good circumstantial case that the preponderance of the evidence leaned in that direction Instead, he establishes nothan that the facts do not contradict his theory Probably the most interesting insight he uncovers is the extent to which the New York Police Department was uninterested in any possibility of a wider conspiracy once they had a confessed killer in custody He quotes ex NYPD Lieutenant of Detectives Arthur O Connor If there is a conspiracy, it would never have been investigated and no conspiracy was investigated to my knowledge, and it would have come to my attention if it had You ve got to understand the human element involved You re so happy to ground the case, you don t want to open Pandora s box because, you know, with investigations, one thing leads to another and another and another and you have resources and manpower and money involved And you have another human reaction laziness There could have been a conspiracy but it was hallelujah to get this one grounded The case is grounded A man acknowledges his guilt, he pleads guilty That s it If there is a conspiracy, I have no information of a conspiracy nor did I look for such information pp 183 184

    This was somewhat of a slow read Although pretty interesting, it failed to convince me of a conspiracy against John Lennon by the CIA I admit that I did and still do believe that there isto the story, however this book lacked any compelling evidence to support the author s theory of CIA involvement in John Lennon s murder He asks some intriguing questions but does not follow them up with answers or back them up with clear evidence The most interesting parts of the book pertained to J This was somewhat of a slow read Although pretty interesting, it failed to convince me of a conspiracy against John Lennon by the CIA I admit that I did and still do believe that there isto the story, however this book lacked any compelling evidence to support the author s theory of CIA involvement in John Lennon s murder He asks some intriguing questions but does not follow them up with answers or back them up with clear evidence The most interesting parts of the book pertained to John himself and the atmosphere surrounding the period after his death I hadn t been born yet when John died, but I was raised on the Beatles and John s solo work, so I have always felt affinity for the man and his work It s still hard for me to believe that he s gone even though I wasn t alive during his time He was always a part of my life.I would not strongly suggest this book to anyone, but there is a little to be gained for fans of John, even if it is just to re read his words and hear from those who knew him describe the years before his death
