T.L. Burnsabout this book: In this historical, yet fictional, novel, Kennedy isn't on a world tour or even in Texas in 1963. Instead he is in the Alps recovering from back surgery, a ruse that he had planned with brother Bobby, and his double months in advance of the tour. With the oval office tapped and the ever present Bobby running interference there was little likelihood that anyone would realize this was not the president. In fact, no one did.
Yet, on the tragic day of John F. Kennedy's assassination, the nation sat glued to the TV as they mourned the loss of a president whose charisma had carried him far. Kennedy's presidency was riddled in strife from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the Cold War and finally to the Vietnam conflict. Any one of these could have been the reason for the assassination. Or, was it something more personal?
Now, the world believes their beloved president is dead, there is no going back for Jack. While the decisions are difficult, it is far better to leave his 'death' alone than to risk political failure for his family clan and ridicule for his young widow.
With the stakes raised, Kennedy must now take on another face, name, and identity. Who is behind the assassination? What was the ultimate goal in killing the president? Was it to topple the American government and take down the Kennedy's with it? Or, was it a case of wrong time, wrong place; and it was simply to remove the president of the United States and start a chain reaction that would be difficult to stop?
