Who was Jack Ruby?   Really?

For those of us who retain an interest in murder of Jack Kennedy on November 23, 1963 in Dallas, George Day, with information gleaned from the notorious stripper Candy Barr, bares it all and weaves an impressive account of what really happened that day. Candy Barr and Jack Ruby although never intimate were long time “platonic friends”, only because of the fact that Jack Ruby was gay. Day recounts the events leading to their close relationship and presents names, dates, and facts that solve the mystery of the assassination of a president. This book will leave you spellbound and amazed.

An excellent description of a wicked Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was killed. Day presents a persuasive account of circumstances surrounding the murders of Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald and presents supporting evidence for the 4 rifle shots. Its a convincing story recanted from interviews of perhaps the most talented exotic dancer that ever lived. A long time best friend to Jack Ruby, Juanita Dale Slusher, Alias Candy Barr, took Dallas by storm before she was 18. With information gained from Candy before she died, Day describes the organizational structure of the Lansky Mafia with amazing clarity. Her connections with Las Vegas as a headliner and her torrid love affair with Lansky’s West Coast mob boss gave her great insight into the inner workings of the mob. Great reading if you’re interested in what really happened in Dallas that December day in 1964.

I recently came across a book by a first time author with an unusual gift for gab. The book Juanita Dale Slusher, Alias Candy Barr, is about a beautiful Texas dancer who lived an amazing life in Dallas, Las Vegas, Hollywood, Edna Texas, and Brownwood Texas. A torrid love affair landed her in a Texas prison and was later pardoned by then Governor of Texas, John Conley. A close friendship with the likes of Dallas Ford Dealer, W. O. Bankston, Attorney Bennie Binion, and infamous best friend Jack Ruby Revealed luscious secretes about Dallas and the 4 shooters who worked together to kill Jack Kennedy. The why, who, and how is described complete with names and specific details that I as a reader was compelled to believe it.
