Not since the brazen murder of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth a century earlier has a presidential assassination so thoroughly gripped the attention and imagination of the world. The subject of endless debate, speculation, and countless conspiracy theories, the murder of President John F. Kennedy -- for all the volume of popular and media attention it received (and receives to this day) -- suffers from a muddle of confusing accounts and disjointed narratives.
END OF DAYS is the definitive account of the day Kennedy was shot, as well as the harrowing 40 minutes between the killing and the apprehension of the presumed shooter--Lee Harvey Oswald. It follows the event hour-by-hour, from the moment the idea for the shooting entered Oswald’s head three days prior, to his own murder two days later by nightclub owner (and Mafia man) Jack Ruby.
Armed with sweeping research, never before collected so powerfully in a single volume, END OF DAYS separates fact from fiction, at last distilling the true timeline of Kennedy’s assassination and Oswald’s capture into a pulse-pounding thriller that’s sure to remain the definitive popular account of the killing for years to come.
