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.

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...

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.

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.

A fun read from beginning to end. A book you cannot put down until finished. If you like alternative history stories with good subject material and well played out characters, this is the book for you. I highly recommend it.

I suspect that some of the stellar reviews on here are because the writers received a free copy of the book in exchange for agreeing to write the review. Rest assured my copy was neither free nor was I solicited to write a review.

There are times that the book is best described as silly and juvenile - like when five pages are spent arguing about who is going to captain the project - written like it was a class of kindergarten children arguing. Other times, the pace just will not move as the author insists on writing in depth detail that is totally unnecessary.

Having been a young adult when Kennedy was assassinated, some of the historical references are just incorrect or, taken out of context for the time. Although, the trip back in time and the period spent in Dallas is certainly the best part of the book, it's still written at a young adult level, hardly compelling reading if your expecting adult material.

Destination Dealey opens in the fall of 2013, just over the horizon from us today, and the United States has clearly become a police state. Gradually it becomes evident that this situation has grown not from post-9/11 draconian measures but dates back to 1963 and the assassination in Dallas, TX, not of Pres. John F. Kennedy, but of his wife, Jackie. Very gradually it is revealed that JFK's mind snaps as a result and he initiates nuclear interchanges with the USSR followed by 50 years of lower-grade conflict.

Meanwhile, a pair of top-level scientists, enslaved by the U.S, government, rather than turn over an anti-matter bomb that could utterly destroy the earth, develop an offshoot technology: anti-time -- i.e., time travel. They escape their gulag, pick up a few useful colleagues, and zip back to 1963 to undo the tragedy. Predictably, their interference results in the history that the rest of us have known since 1963, but it is at least free of nuclear war.

The story keeps the reader's attention throughout, although some plot shifts are a bit confusing. The overall plot closely resembles Stephen King's novel, 11/22/63. I prefer Fitzgerald's approach, which attempts to explain how time travel might happen. There are a few gaffs in the scientific part -- the number of Soviet satellites aloft in 1963 and the altitude required for geosynchronous orbit -- but the tale is, overall, believable. The more one has read about JFK's assassination the more impressive the story is. All of the major and many of the minor characters find places here, their circumstances appropriately altered. One sees the true tragedy of 1963 coming, but does not see how it will be reached. Several clever reverses of face occur to keep it interesting.
