KILLING KENNEDY by Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard

The End of Camelot

  This is a story of an American tragedy that changed the course of history.  John F. Kennedy in the midst of his 1963 campaign trip to Texas, is gunned down, resulting in national chaos. 
  In January 1961, as the cold war escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States.  His beautiful young wife, Jackie, must also adjust to a life of constant scrutiny.  Despite personal and political trails, Kennedy's rating soar.

  At the same time, JFK acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Allen Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  When his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, cracks down on powerful elements of organized crime, the list of those who have it in for the president grows.
  Killing Kennedy explores the events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century and these events are almost as shocking as the assassination itself.  A page-turner from beginning to end, Killing Kennedy, chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot.
