Book Description

Saving Jackie K


The Future's Only Hope is in the Past
A desperate escape from a tyrannical government
A mind-boggling journey to alter history
The shocking truth about a sinister conspiracy . . . revealed

Present day, alternate America: Coerced to build a war-ending Anti-Matter weapon, female inmate scientists Iggy Mikos and Sera Banks blast out of federal prison. Americans have subsisted in an oppressive police state and a corrosive Russian war for fifty years. The bloody conflict ignited in 1963, when Soviet KGB operatives botched the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, killing his wife Jackie instead.

As the US and Russia teeter on the brink of Armageddon, Iggy and Sera accidentally discover a way to jump through time. Armed with this earth-shattering technology, they take matters into their own hands. To save the future they must change the past. Iggy and Sera recruit a team of wisecracking outlaws to time-travel back to 1963 and embark on the ultimate mission:

Saving Jackie K.

Splashing down in 1963 Dallas, the team races against the clock to thwart the conspiracy attempting to kill JFK. Relentlessly researched, the thrilling timeline counts down to the instant shots were fired at President Kennedy’s motorcade fifty years ago. Real-life eyewitnesses chronicle the events of November 22, 1963 in pages ripped from their own testimony.


Editorial Reviews

Review

A thrill ride that will keep you guessing. A blend of fact and fiction. Everything you read feels real. I was left to wonder; Did LDC Fitzgerald actually time travel to 1963?

I highly recommend this book. The writing style is fresh. It is a fast-paced adventure with many twists, turns and surprises.

Ron Hood-Host of Ron's Amazing Stories

Readers will enjoy this page turner. A mission impossible jump back into time to save humanity...cloaked and spiced up with clever fragments of actual history that capture the reader. Time treks readers [to 1963] in visual clarity!

Historical and interesting ending grips the reader to the very last page!

Darell Thorpe-Producer, KTKK's Drive Time Live

If you like historical drama and science fiction you will love this book.

Word on the street is that [the authors] also had time to build a working time machine in their garage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting.... July 23, 2012
Format:Paperback
Fitzgerald's attempt at substituting possible ending scenarios is interesting, but not very helpful in solving the crime of the century. It's a compelling novel of what might have happened if things had a different outcome then. What would JFK do, having survived an assassination?

Though it's just a novel, it's worth picking up. To see someone's take on JFK surviving, etc. is definitely interesting...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thrill Ride Through Time, Space and History June 22, 2012
By R. Hood
Format:Kindle Edition
Destination Dealey: Countdown to the Kennedy conspiracy is a thrill ride that will keep you guessing from the moment that first parachute opens to when we find ourselves on that grassy knoll November 22nd 1963.

What I like about this book is blend of fact and fiction. Everything you read feels real and I found myself saying, "So that is how that happened." The author has taken research to a whole new level ensuring that details of the story match historical events. He then blurred that vision with fictional accounts that fit so perfectly it just has to be real. I was left to wonder; Did LDC Fitzgerald actually time travel to 1963?

The writing style of the book is fresh. The chapters are broken down into snippets of time which corresponds to the countdown. This innovative approach allows for a good story flow and has the added benefit of allowing its reader to stop at just about any point. Perfect for someone like me who has short breaks and likes to finish a chapter before putting the book down.

Overall, I highly recommend this book. It is a fast pace adventure with many twists, turns and surprises. It is a perfect read for anyone who likes historical works and appreciates a good story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made a 180 Turn on This One February 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I enjoy time travel stories, when I started reading this one, I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to enjoy it. It just seems that too many characters were introduced too soon. But by the time the adventure had ended, I didn't want the story to conclude.
Now that is the mark of a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars More sci-fi than historical August 28, 2013
By Pam M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the historical & creative story line, however felt it had too much of a science fiction rather than a "save the world" feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, very entertaiing February 13, 2013
By Mac
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
OK, I am not a writer or going to give you a long review of every scene using words that you'll have to pay for a Ivy League education to understand like many of the Amazon book reviews. But I always found the Kennedy Assassination to be interesting and the Author went to great length's to fit their story into the time line of the assassination. The story line is its 2012 and Russia and the United States have been attacking each other with Nuclear bombs since Mrs Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. Two scientists held by the government in prison are forced to work on Anti Matter as the next ultimate weapon. During their research they discover Anti Time. They figure if they can go back in time and stop Mrs Kennedy from being killed, then they can reverse the Nuclear war that John Kennedy starts in 1964 in direct result of his wife Jackie's murder.
After using Anti Time to escape, the two scientist form a team to go back in time.
The rest of the book goes through how they plan to stop the assassination, follow the leads and confront the would be assassination. Some wild things happen along the way, that keep you entertained and sitting at the edge of your seat right up until the expected and then the unexpected ending.
A really enjoyable read, with interesting characters.
