Was What’s My Line TV Star, media icon, and crack investigative reporter and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen murdered for writing a tell-all book about the JFK assassination? If so, is the main suspect in her death still at large?

These questions and more are answered in former CNN, ESPN, and USA Today legal analyst Mark Shaw’s 25th book, The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. Through discovery of never-before-seen videotaped eyewitness interviews with those closest to Kilgallen and secret government documents, Shaw unfolds a “whodunit” murder mystery featuring suspects including Frank Sinatra, J. Edgar Hoover, Mafia Don Carlos Marcello and a “Mystery Man” who may have silenced Kilgallen. All while by presenting through Kilgallen’s eyes the most compelling evidence about the JFK assassinations since the House Select Committee on Assassination’s investigation in the 1970s.

Called by the New York Post, “the most powerful female voice in America,” and by acclaimed author Mark Lane the “the only serious journalist in America who was concerned with who killed John Kennedy and getting all of the facts about the assassination,” Kilgallen’s official cause of death reported as an overdose of barbiturates combined with alcohol, has always been suspect since no investigation occurred despite the death scene having been staged. Shaw proves Kilgallen, a remarkable woman who broke the “glass ceiling” before the term became fashionable, was denied the justice she deserved, that is until now.

Dorothy Kilgallen & Jack Ruby: A Toxic Mix In 1931, at the age of 17, she was a cub reporter for the “New York Evening Journal.” At age 23, she was the first woman “to fly around the world on commercial airlines.” In 1937, she wrote the screenplay for the film, “Fly Away Baby.” She had a cameo role in the Hollywood flick, “Sinner Take All,” and her moniker is enshrined on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her name is Dorothy Mae Kilgallen and she broke the glass ceiling for women in her chosen profession. Kilgallen was born on…

Very interesting subject, terribly written book The subject of this book is very interesting. However, this is the worst written book I have ever seen. This book evidently did not have a proof reader. It is full of repetition, convoluted sentences, repeated words (like stuttering), and conjecture. The author could have told his story in 100 pages, but he chose to repeat himself for another 200 pages. I care very much what happened to Dorothy Kilgallen, but this does not do her credit. Perhaps someone else will write a book that will do…

The Silencing of An Investigative Reporter Author Mark Shaw has written a compelling rebuttal regarding the death of journalist and television personality Dorothy Kilgallen. Shaw not only wishes to restore Ms Kilgallen’s reputation regarding the manner of her death but his belief that she was murdered due to her intense digging into the manner of the death of President John F. Kennedy. Dorothy had received threats regarding her efforts to find the truth behind Kennedy’s assassination and author Shaw has done considerable research in…
