Book Description

It¹s 1960, the height of the Cold War, but for Dante Amato of the Chicago Mob, life is anything but cold. Charismatic and movie-star handsome, Dante has settled comfortably into his role as The Outfit¹s man in Hollywood and Vegas. Dante¹s older brother, Aldo, a CIA agent, couldn¹t be more disapproving of his brother¹s life. Yet when Dante is ordered to meet with a beautiful Cuban go-between named Marissa del Valle, and then mob boss Sam Giancana summons him to Miami to discuss a U.S. Government commission to hit the Cuban dictator, Dante¹s first call is to his brother.

Is it a set-up? Or a chance for the mob to restart the flow of gambling and drug money from Havana? And what about Bobby Kennedy¹s war against The Mob? ³Bobby Kennedy is a snake,² says Jimmy Hoffa to Santo Trafficante. And how do you kill a snake? You cut off its head. ³ As this spellbinding thriller by E. Duke Vincent unfolds, a gripping story emerges, masterfully connecting the dots between the Kennedys, Castro, The Mob, the CIA . . . and the Grassy Knoll.

Editorial Reviews


"Thrillers thrive on a conspiracy burning away like a fuse on a bomb. With this novel, Vincent strikes a fictional match and explodes the supposed cover-ups, machinations and disinformation surrounding the Kennedy assassination." ---Kirkus

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! April 28, 2011
By James
This is my kind of book. I love novels that blend fiction with historical fact and Duke Vincent does it splendidly in The Camelot Conspiracy. We know all the major players: JFK, RFK, the CIA, the Mafia, Castro and Lee Harvey Oswald. Well, add to this mix charismatic gangster Dante Amato, who lives by his own set of rules. His brother Aldo, a by the book CIA agent who hates what his brother does for a living, and a sexy, irresistible Cuban vixen, Marissa del Valle.

Dante's adventure takes us behind the scenes for a fascinating look at some of the most pivotal moments in American history. He's at the Bay of Pigs, he's sent to Cuba to assassinate Castro, and he finds himself in Dallas as JFK's motorcade turns on to Dealey Plaza.

The Camelot Conspiracy is a fast, fun page-turner full of action, sex, intrigue and betrayal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's storytelling May 16, 2011
Fantastic book. For me, having not been alive yet in the 60s, Camelot Conspiracy paints the picture of one of the most exciting times in America. Castro, the Mob, the CIA, and American politics? Are you kidding me? And all through the sexy lens of Dante Amato's exploits. If this is the way I need to learn my history, well, I'll take it. A great, fact-packed exciting read, and a taste of a world so many of us missed. Five stars, or as Dante could say, I vouch.

Author, E. Duke Vincent, has written a fascinating and engrossing
book of fiction. His account of the turbulent times leading up to the
assassination of John F. Kennedy was done in deft and skilful story-telling.
The Camelot Conspiracy is a page turner to the very end. I would recommend the book to anyone that loves good fiction and good writing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful editing January 15, 2012
I do not believe I have read a more poorly edited/proof read book in a long time. Though it was a very easy read the typos and poor editing became extremely distracting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Editing November 26, 2011
While I enjoyed the book content and story, it was so full of misspellings and sentences with missing words, the editor should be fired. It was extremely disturbing while reading and really detracted from what is otherwise a good novel. What a shame!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good novel and page turner! October 30, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This novel is a very interesting and easy read about a subject that is usually difficult to follow and understand.From a true crime perspective,the book:"Mob Lawyer" by Frank Ragano was also very good on this topic.Mr.Vincent does a very good job of bringing to life his fictional characters with the historical figures that were involved in what was one of the most frightful conspiracies in United States history: The assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This novel will take the reader to interesting and exotic locations such as: Beverly Hills,Hollywood,Mexico,Las Vegas,Nicaragua, Miami,Washington D.C. and Cuba.They're all here as well:the Mafia dons,Cuban hierarchy,Politicians,the CIA,FBI,spies,Teamsters,celebrities,Assassins,call girls and starlets.All of this make for a very good read.This novel was also researched very well.As a couple of reviewers stated,there was a few errors that were overlooked in the proofreading,but that didn't take anything away from this exceptional novel.The places that I thought that this novel came up short were in the area of action and violence.Also,It was not made clear what the main character Dante Amato's position and duties were with:"THE OUTFIT".Certainly,these are people that were responsible for contract murders,and are not the gentle souls that E Duke Vincent portrayed.Like it or not,there was a lot of blood that was spilled during this part of American history.The author of the brilliant novel:"THE POWER OF THE DOG" named Don Winslow sets a perfect example on a simular,yet different subject matter.E.Duke Vincent's style of writing is very simular to one of my favorite novelist,Mario Puzo.Their style of writing is very clear,simple and to the point.Puzo however,is much more violent and sexual when he writes his novels.At the end of the day,this is still a very good read that I would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bada-Bing July 7, 2011
Mr. Vincent has killed two birds with one stone, giving us yet another thrilling page turner while also producing an epic work of historical reportage, comprehensive to the core. The content explored really needs no elaboration- JFK, Castro, CIA operatives, the Mob- all of it's stand alone, seeping with intrigue. Where Vincent truly thrives is with his work weaving together the disparate narrative elements, each strand propelling the others forward to an unforgettably tragic, poignant, and ultimately unavoidable end. Bravo!
