Given the status of our current Government and economy, it is very hard to read this book and not truly wonder, "WHAT IF". I don't think that JFK by any means was Saintly, but more, that he was the right man as President at a very important time in our country's history. His death was a crossroads which led us down a very different and ugly path that we are now paying for...

That day in Dallas altered an entire generation and significantly altered the history of the past 50 years. This well thought out and movingly written novel paints a vivid picture of what might have happened had JFK not fallen victim to the darker side of American politics. Worth reading.

I grew up in the 60's and this book was my first historical what-if. A historian friend of mine says the author did a good job of integrating fact with possibility so that the story is quite plausible. From a truth and justice standpoint I found it very satisfying. Scenes with J Edgar Hoover, Lyndon Baines Johnson and other figures of the time are fascinating, spooky and hilarious. The story has a back-and-forth time warp that works once you get used to it. One of the ways you get to know the historical players is through a young (fictional) journalist Patrick Hennessey whose slow-starting romance is pretty darn cute. Without giving away the story I can safely say: Imagine transparency and truth around the John F Kennedy assassination rather than obfuscation and ineptitude. Imagine a bullet that stops shy of the president's vitals and does not kill him. Imagine JFK lives to do right by keeping left, and world history takes a turn for the better... It's a good read and I highly recommend it.

Great "what if" novel. I could have easily read another 200 pages.
