Description
Adapted from Decoded, Brad Meltzer's hit show on the History cable channel, this book explores ten fascinating, unexplained questions that haunt us today. Is Fort Knox empty? Why was Hitler so intent on capturing the Roman "Spear of Destiny" that pierced Jesus's side? What UFO evidence is the government hiding in Area 51? Where did the Confederacy's $19 million in gold and silver go at the end of the Civil War? And did Lee Harvey Oswald really act alone? In chapters on these and on Freemasons, Rosicrucians, John Wilkes Booth, Leonardo da Vinci, and the real D.B. Cooper—each accompanied by a dossier of removable facsimile items—Meltzer sifts through the evidence, weighs competing theories, separates what we know to be true from what is still (and may always be) unproven or unprovable, and in the end, presents the most likely solution to the mystery.

"Newcomers and longtime fans of Meltzer's popular TV show, Decoded (whereon he and a trio of experts investigate the veracity of various myths and legends), will relish this print companion, comprising summaries of 10 of the most intriguing topics pursued on the show.... As viewers know, the majority of his inquiries don't have a definitive conclusion, but half the fun is getting there. Meltzer peppers each section with fascinating asides (an independent panel determined that all the shots that killed Kennedy came from the rear rather than from multiple angles) and trivia (Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier three months after the Roswell incident, something scientists had previously thought impossible) that is sure to keep readers enthralled and conspiracy theorists encouraged to continue to dig for the truth."—Publishers Weekly
