Surfside 6 trivia
5 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great series and I remember watching it as a teenager, along with the other detective series. According to the book Ultimate Sacrifice, by Lamar Waldron and Thom Hartmann, which details documents from many sources about the Kennedy Assination. This book asserts that the Mafia killed Kennedy and that there was a secret plot by the Kennedy's to eliminate Castro and put in place a government friendly to the US and this is why the government help cover up the assassination. They also report that the late Bobby Kennedy and Mafia Johnny Rosselli, reportedly meet on the houseboat that was the setting for this series in 1962. The houseboat would later become infamous as the place where Gianni Versce's murderer, Andrew Cunanan was captured.
