Overview

"A book for the ages."—?Los Angeles Times Book ReviewFour Days in November is an extraordinarily exciting, precise, and definitive narrative of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, by Lee Harvey Oswald. It is drawn from Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a huge and historic account of the event and all the conspiracy theories it spawned, by Vincent Bugliosi, famed prosecutor of Charles Manson and author of Helter Skelter. For general readers, the carefully documented account presented in Four Days is utterly persuasive: Oswald did it and he acted alone.

Editorial Reviews

Wall Street Journal
“One of the best narrative treatments of the four days from assassination to funeral.”
Scott Turow
“This is quite simply a book that will be read for centuries.”
New York Times Book Review
“What Bugliosi has done is a public service... the literary equivalent of World War I, a kind of trench warfare for the mind.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review
“At last, someone has done it, put all the pieces together.... With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America.”
Richard Mosk
“By far the most accurate and detailed nongovernmental account [of] the assassination.”
Washington Post
“Absent a trial proving [Oswald's] guilt, Bugliosi has offered the next best thing: a prosecutor's air-tight brief that leaves no reasonable doubt.... Bugliosi is right that this case is, and ought to be, closed.”
The Atlantic
“There is no question that Bugliosi succeeds in scorching the conspiracy theory terrain with ferocious, even definitive, plausibility.”
Philadelphia Inquirer
“Few books are as gripping in their narrative, or as telling in their fine detail. This is a book that will make you weep.”
The Oregonian
“What Bugliosi has done is reframe the narrative in such a compelling manner, in such an original writing voice, that he essentially shuts the conspiracy theorists down cold.”
Booklist

[A] monumental critique.
