Overview

In End of Days, James L. Swanson, the New York Times bestselling author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer, brings to life the minute-by-minute details of the JFK assassination—from the Kennedys' arrival in Texas through the shooting in Dealey Plaza and the shocking aftermath that continues to reverberate in our national consciousness fifty years later.

The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, has been the subject of enduring debate, speculation, and numerous conspiracy theories, but Swanson's absorbing and complete account follows the event hour-by-hour, from the moment Lee Harvey Oswald conceived of the crime three days before its execution, to his own murder two days later at a Dallas Police precinct at the hands of Jack Ruby, a two-bit nightclub owner.

Based on sweeping research never before collected so powerfully in a single volume, and illustrated with photographs, End of Days distills Kennedy's assassination into a pulse-pounding thriller that is sure to become the definitive popular account of this historic crime for years to come.

Absolutely terrible. Nothing but the same old facts, enlivened by tons of unfounded speculation by the author. Any of ten other books tell the story more accurately and more originally.

I must admit i'm only 25 pages in but there is too much first-person account of conversations between the Oswalds, as if the author were actually there, borders on fiction rather than historical fact, hopefully will pick up later on facts,

That says it all. James Swanson is a master of non fiction. I just can't put his books down!

Good overall account.

The brutal slaying of a much loved husband, father and President.....distilled, according to the publisher, into a "pulse pounding thriller." Excuse me while I go vomit.
