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.

    "I remember - but I did not know..."

    This books gives the contex of many things going on before and after the day in Dallas. Moving to Dallas 5 years after the assination talk radio made a living on the each new therory or plot. Most made the authors money and not much more.

    It was good to see it all put back in to prespective. Some of that historyin Nov is still being felt today. So many of the details I had forgotten or had not put into that contex.

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

    I certainly would recommend this book as it gives insight I never heard before and something to think about. I think you might want to hear it twice.


    What other book might you compare Killing Kennedy to and why?

    Killing Lincoln for about the same reason. I learned a lot more history about the South.


    What does Bill O'Reilly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His articulation (sp) made it easy to understand and didn't go too fast.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Of course the murdering of Kennedy and the feelings of Mrs Kennedy.
