About this title

Synopsis:

A historical novel based on a true story. The 1935 Cover-up is exposed for the very first time through the unforgettable life and unmerciful torture of Jessica Lauren Fields. She overheard the plot to assassinate U.S. Senator and former Louisiana Governor Huey P. Long (The Kingfish). She reported the conspiracy to the authorities before the assassination. Two days after the assassination, she was arrested and charged with slander and spreading malicious lies. The next day the cover-up was upheld in a kangaroo court which judged her incompetent and committed her to a mental institution for life in Washington. She was not permitted visitors and was ineligible for parole. She remained confined until she died fifty-three years after the assassination. Jessica discovered that telling the truth against the powers that be required paying tremendous consequences. A life sentence without visitors or the possibility of parole, for telling the truth, is unjust and unmerciful torture in the United States of America.

From the Publisher:

It is an honor and privilege to publish this untold part of history that was a Labor of Love from a deathbed promise. This historical novel is based on the true story about Duel Stone's aunt, Jessica Lauren Fields--includes a 90 page appendix on Huey P. Long's life and death. Duel Stone was born and raised in Louisiana. Duel's father asked him to write Jessica's story, year after year. Duel had heard her story, all of his life, from many of the family members. He took notes along the way in order to, one day, satisfy his father's wish. He told his dad it would take months and months to research and compile her life story but, whenever possible, he would get it done. Time passed. His father had to be entered into a nursing home at the age of eighty-seven. During the six months he was there, prior to his death, he influenced Duel to promise he would write a book about the Huey P. Long conspiracy. Duel's promise to his father has been kept with this First Edition printing. Fresh, interesting reading presented in a manner that makes you feel as though you are in the story among the characters. This book has all of the necessary ingredients for an outstanding movie. Conspiracy Unveiled reveals another episode of corruption in the United States. It reflects Louisiana politics at their finest about Louisiana's most powerful political figure ever. The historical value alone makes a First Edition copy an important addition to any library.
