After a close friend's apparent suicide, Christopher Cornwell receives several photos the friend mailed prior to his death. Cornwell subsequently discovers by chance the presence in one of the photos of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President Kennedy. But how could Oswald be photographed in a small Hertfordshire market town when he was supposed to be living in Russia as a defector at the same time?
As Cornwell investigates the story behind the photos he unknowingly becomes the target of an investigation himself, by a shadowy agency as determined to maintain its secrets now as in 1963.

“The great JFK conspiracy novel... the assassination in Dealey Plaza will never seem the same again. Darkly imaginative and believable... a totally original ‘secret history’ of our time” (Larry Celona, Chief Crime Correspondent, New York Post)
Most highly! This is VERY compelling read, by an author/performer duo who I hope to hear much more from in the future. Fascinating twists, no massive suspensions of disbelief required...just damn good suspense and enough personality to keep the listener on their toes...or..whatever is your favourite expression!
Our victim/hero was compelling, but I liked Georges.
His authentic accents and attitude are very approachable and compelling.
I wouldn't say extreme, but man, I was hooked!
This is a VERY worthwhile read, and I can't recommend it high enough. ( Why not 5's across the board? The story does jump around at times, and the editing quality does leave somethings to be desired).
Notwithstanding, the creative idea, and subsequent movement of the storyline to advance the idea, are wonderful, with enough character development ( and engagement ) that the listener is pulled along in a whirlwhind of drama and suspense.
Spend the credit, and enjoy as much as I did!
"A truth yet to be believed."
A clever piece of fiction(?) that sets the mind on a course of inner questioning
this story concept was completely new to me, and though read some time ago still has me questioning in an unsettled way.
Paul has a fine repertoire of voices and together with intonations one finds it hard not to recognise them all as the one voice .
A good storyline for a book does not always make a good film!
A Frewin writes with a lot of skill, I would like to know about any other books he has written.
