Description
Built on 30 years of intense research—including discoveries that have rekindled CIA and State Department interest in the Kennedy assassination—this is a vivid, character-driven, almost cinematic narration depicting two opposed sets of brothers, the Kennedys and the Castros, who collectively authored one of the modern era's most dangerous and tragically ironic chapters. Bobby Kennedy pushed for the murder of Fidel Castro and instead got the death of his beloved brother, a blow from which he himself never recovered. Lee Harvey Oswald killed an admired president and traumatized a nation, but in so doing may have prevented a third world war.

"Was Castro behind Lee Harvey Oswald's act? The research is exhaustive (with extensive notes and bibliography), but the writing is pointed and suspenseful. In reassessing the lead-up to and aftermath of the Dallas tragedy, the authors focus on two sets of remarkable contemporary brothers—Fidel and Raul Castro and John and Bobby Kennedy. This is a powerful piece of historical investigative reporting, accessible both to those familiar with the Kennedy assassination and those less involved with the conspiracy theory. Russo has worked as an investigative reporter for PBS's Frontline and other networks. Molton is a novelist and film writer. Together, they've produced a solidly researched piece of journalism that reads like a thriller."—Booklist
