The perfect companion volume to Michael Meiers' Was Jonestown a CIA Medical Experiment. Not that Reiterman's is a conspiracy theory, but he's researched and written a huge indispensable book for theorists of any stripe whatsoever. This cataloguer has skimmed his text for the origin of the title Reiterman chose, has not found it except that JJ is noted to have had very black hair, cataloguer remembers only the allegation that "Raven" was an intelligence code name for Jones during a period when CIA routinely gave its agentry and programs bird names such as "Falcon" and "Project Bluebird").
