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.

    "My review of Killing Kennedy"

    Bill O'Reilly was awesome as the commentator/reader of his book. I couldn't stop listening to the audio. Thank you Mr. O'Reilly for writing the book and recording it. I would recommend it family and friends.

    I'd like my money back. Could have been a link to the National Inquirer. You are better than this Bill.

    "Great book!"

    You have to get used to O'Reilly's reading style- it sounds just like his news broadcasts, but once you do, it's hard to put down. The story itself left me haunted by the events of the past, and just how evil men can be.

    "O'Reilly is masterful in The Killing of Kennedy"

    This is the best historical review both written and told of JFK's life leading up to and including the assassination. O'Reilly does a superlative factual account and keeps the reader riveted.

    "Gives a lot to think about..."

    Book was very well written where it does not provide answers but rather lays out the information & let's the listener come to their own decision.

    "Good Book"

    I enjoyed it. Very interesting and informative. A good look at an important time in history. Why is Audible making me write more than I want or need to in order to fill some word quota they manufactured. Is this communist Russia?
