Publisher's Summary

Here, for the first time in decades, is a gripping, minute-by-minute account of the day President John F. Kennedy was shot. In End of Days, James Swanson reveals Lee Harvey Oswald's bizarre history of violence and follows John and Jacqueline Kennedy on their fateful Dallas motorcade ride.
Swanson takes us to the sixth-floor Texas Book Depository window to look through Oswald's rifle sights, re-creates the last hours of the doomed assassin, and the day of national mourning for the president that followed, culminating in a funeral that united the country. Combining extensive research with his unparalleled storytelling abilities, Swanson turns the events of one of the darkest days of the twentieth century into a pulse-pounding thriller that will remain the definitive account of the assassination for years to come.

Awful. Truly terrible.

Seems like the author did very little original research. Needless imagined melodrama. Seemed like a cut and paste of other, more important works.

Worst JFK Assassination Book I have read.

What disappointed you about End of Days?

I have listen to or read at least twenty books related to the Kennedy Assassination and this book was biased from the beginning. I tried to pick up the story and continue but I couldn't due to the ridiculous subject matter.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Richard Thomas?

Richard Thomas was fine


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment
