“Well-researched and compelling…This impressive work comes closer than any other author’s efforts… in establishing the truth of the JFK assassination.”—History News Network

A vivid, character-driven narration of the time before, during, and after Kennedy’s death, centered on the Kennedys and the Castros, two opposed sets of brothers who collectively authored one of modern history’s most gripping chapters.
