When was looking to purchase this book for my Kindle, there was one review. I liked what was said and figured I might as well take a shot and read it. The author did a great job keeping me interested. I could not walk away from the story and finished it in less then two days. It all makes perfect sense to me about the Kennedy killing. Don't over look this book, at the price I purchased it I would do it again. I MUST READ......"Good job Roger Levine"

I bought this book thinking it was non-fiction and read it to the last chapter thinking it would conclude with some evidence in support of same. I wondered why the name Zapruder was changed throughout the narrative, but kept reading. It does a good job of including the various and sundry theories, and newly released evidence of the conspiracy to kill Kennedy. Unfortunately it ends disappointingly as a fictional character's narrative. If you have studied the Kennedy assassination books currently on the market and recently released tome by the researcher of the ARRB, all of the pieces make perfect sense. Add in the internet You Tube productions regarding Sartee, and there you have the book. I guess it does make it pallatable to a new reader to the subject, for that I give it three stars; one for each dollar it costs.

This book is very well documented and a worthwhile read, if you are at all interested in getting to the truth of the assasination of John F. Kennedy & the subsequent cover-up. This was & still is one of the greatest travesties of justice and it should be reopened to let the truth be known. I would highly recommend this book. I bought it to read on my Kindle.

The book holds you spellbound all the way until the end. The main character, "Jake" is the symbolic grandson of Abraham Zabruder, though this is a novel so the names are changed to protect the innocent. Most Americans today agree that there was some sort of conspiracy that took place in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. How it played out is anyone's guess, but Levine, the author, leaves this to no doubt. Of all the various theories, Levine's theory is probably pretty close to what probably occurred that fateful day in November, 1963. To be clear, Gerald Posner's thesis that Oswald pulled the trigger and killed Kennedy is simply preposterous to any informed Kennedy assassination reader. If you prescribe to Posner's theory, please don't bother to read this book. But, most likely you as many others do not buy the government's magic bullet theory, so this book's for you! This novel pretty much outlines the conspiracy events and what may have happened. It's up to you the reader to decide! Enjoy!

Interesting read that made sense from a big picture. I can see how this conspiracy could play out and is very understandable.
