Overview

Deadly Risks by Lew Paper

Deadly Risks is a heart-pounding fictional thriller which provides a new slant on JFK's assassination in a gripping story that is sure to entertain.

Lew Paper's first book on John Kennedy's Presidency, John F. Kennedy: The Promise and the Performance, received critical praise from many quarters:

"An excellent piece of scholarship and one of the most useful works on JFK."-Tom Wicker, New York Times

"This interesting book sets John Kennedy in the framework of our great expectations of past Presidents, their fulfillment of those hopes and their tragic failures."-Anthony Lewis, New York Times

"Paper has chartered some much-needed fresh thinking on President Kennedy..."-CBS Radio

One of the "more thoughtful of the current reappraisals..."-Newsweek

"Paper has succeeded, his reward for years of painstaking research and thought and, not incidentally, his good writing... a fine addition to the history of our times."-Hartford Courant

"...a new and different kind of 'Kennedy book' that is well worth reading..."-Sunday (Newark) Star-Ledger

"...Paper delivers... a balanced study of a pragmatist who seldom allowed his political progress to be burdened by the excess baggage of ideology."-National Review

"...an intriguing analysis of the intricacies of presidential leadership."-Chattanooga News-Free Press

"For thoughtful Americans, who ponder why Kennedy's Presidency is so much greater than the facts seem to warrant, and why the impact he has made confounds objectivity, this book is essential reading."-Former United States Senator Bill Bradley

Why was President Kennedy put on a pedistal? His words were far greater than his deeds. I found the reading intriging and I am confounded by the publics' perception of THE MAN. I have great sorrow for what happened to him and his family. Also, it is frightening to me what man can do to man..a must read.
