Publisher's Summary

A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the 20th century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the listener. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

    "Another classic by O'REILLY!"

    Suspenseful writing and convincing historical presentation. I appreciate the mentions of conspiracy theories without suppositions. O'REILLY sticks to the known facts. As good a read/listen as any of his previous books.

    "Informative and enjoyable"

    I love this book. Bill O'Reilly does a wonderful job explaining things so the reader is never left in confusion about a term that's been used or a person who was involved in the story. I learned so much about John F. Kennedy and the men and women around him. Highly recommend!!

    What did you love best about Killing Kennedy?

    Focus on facts


    Have you listened to any of Bill O'Reilly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I liked Killing Lincoln more. In depth facts seemed to pull me in more.

    "Interesting but I expected more"
