    In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, an anxious 12-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the 12-year-old and his father become fugitives, forced to run from Coos County to Boston, to southern Vermont, to Toronto, pursued by the implacable constable.

    Even today, almost five decades after John F. Kennedy was slain, the public continues to be captivated by the "Kennedy Curse" and new theories about what really happened on that fateful day in 1963. For nearly 50 years former Secret Service agent Clint Hill has lived with the unimaginable guilt of losing a president on his watch and has obeyed an honor code of silence, refusing to contribute to any books about the assassination. Until now.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Worst Narration ever! Not only does Sklar make JFK an Irish immigrant with his horrible New England Accent, he mispronounces Caroline's name throughout the book. This is unforgivable for a "Professional"narrator and I don't understand how it got by so many people involved in producing this book. I totally agree with an earlier reviewer that this error takes you out of the book.

    The story is well told and paced and I really enjoyed the insight into life as a Secret Service Agent. I have a greater respect for what these guys do and what they sacrifice to protect the President.

    I highly recommend reading this book in print not listening to this horrible narration.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Use of a professional narrator.
