The Kennedy Connection cover


Half a century after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, someone is killing people on the streets of New York City and leaving behind a bizarre calling card of that tragic day in Dallas.

In this bold and entertaining thriller from a true media insider, discredited newspaper reporter Gil Malloy breaks the story of the link between seemingly unconnected murders—a Kennedy half dollar coin found at each of the crime scenes. At the same time, a man emerges who claims to be the secret son of Lee Harvey Oswald and says he has new evidence that Oswald was innocent of the JFK killing. 

Malloy, who has fallen from grace at the New York Daily Newsand sees this as an opportunity to redeem himself as an ace reporter, is certain there is a connection between the Oswald revelations and the NYC murders, but first he has to get someone to believe him. Convinced that the answers go all the way back to the JFK assassination more than fifty years ago, Malloy soon uncovers long-buried secrets that put his own life in danger from powerful forces who fear he’s getting too close to the truth. 

Two tales of suspense fuse into an edge-of-your-seat thriller as Malloy races to stop the killer—before it’s too late.


If you love your mysteries with historical references, and a modern twist, you are gonna love this page turner! Everyone has a theory about the Kennedy assassination, and any journalist would love to be the person that finds 'the missing piece" of the puzzle, that settles the mystery of that fateful day, and is tied to one of the most historic events in American history.So it is easy to understand how Malloy gets side tracked by what he is finding the JFK assassination. But is he really sidetracked, or is everything linked in a larger conspiracy? there within lies the mystery and thrill of the book. It's a fun read, and history buffs will spend time checking out the internet while reading the book, for anything related!
