Kennedy's Last Days is a gripping account of the events leading up to the most notorious crime of the 20th century. Adapted from Bill O’Reilly’s best-selling historical thriller, Killing Kennedy, this audiobook will have young listeners - and grown-ups too - hooked on this fascinating and colorful period of history.
In the first term of his presidency, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while dealing with the many other complexities facing him as president of the United States. 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. With an unforgettable cast of characters, non-stop action, and vivid detail, Kennedy's Last Days is history that reads like a thriller. This is a very special audiobook, irresistible on its own or as a compelling companion to Killing Kennedy.

I waited for this book expecting it would be like O'reilly's book on Lincoln. It's basically a recitation of facts on the Kennedy assassination that would be useful to a junior high student. No insight and absolutely nothing new. I don't know when I've been more disappointed in a selection. The only redeeming quality in this audiobook is the narration of Edward Herrmann, who I think is the best.
Never again Mr. O'reilly. What a rip-off!
