The Carter presidency was on life support. The Democrats, desperate to keep power and yearning to resurrect former glory, turned to Ted Kennedy. Camelot's End details the incredible drama of Kennedy's challenge - what led to it, how it unfolded, and its lasting effects - with cinematic sweep. It is a story about what happened to the Democratic Party when the country's long string of successes, luck, and global dominance following World War II ran its course, and how, on a quest to recapture the magic of JFK, Democrats plunged themselves into an intra-party civil war.

I am a difficult person to keep focused so I can start a book and stop listening if it slows down. Jon Ward’s book brought Carter and Kennedy so much alive I was sad when it finished. I hope Jon keeps writing.

The storyline and narrators make this series rock. The compulsion to survive takes many forms...it builds character or it exposes the lack there of. I hope this series continues as a new world evolves out of an apocalyptic ongoing event/events
