    For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy until after the election of Lyndon Johnson, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and friend. Looking back, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in an orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clint Hill


    Have you listened to any of Jeremy Bobb’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First one. I thought he hit it right on the money.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I found myself setting in my driveway not wanting to bookmark my iPhone app.


    Any additional comments?

    This amazing recount of the life and times of the Kennedy family was thrilling. I almost passed on this book after the negative review I read on Audible referring to the " narcissistic" view of the author. Putting yourself in his shoes and watching over Mrs Kennedy for three years and having direct interaction with Caroline and John JR. plus JKF was thrilling.This book put you right there. I laughed and cried with this one. Clint was a amazing person and one hell of a Secret Service Agent. I do not want to give a book report but after reading Steven Kings 11/23/63 this gave a realistic look at what it was like to be beside JBK from 61-64. Five stars!
