Publisher's Summary

The missed shot that changed the world.
January 1964. Political intrigue and infighting roils Washington in the wake of the assassination attempt in Dallas, and a wounded President John F. Kennedy returns to the White House to face a growing crisis in Vietnam that threatens America's Cold War strategy. The president doesn't trust the information he is getting from Saigon, where the military is engaged in a shadow operation to make things seem better than they really are. So he turns to the one man he does trust: Lt. Colonel Patrick O'Shea. A decorated combat veteran of Korea, O'Shea has been plucked from obscurity to be Kennedy's military advisor, and is tasked by the president to figure out what is really going on in Vietnam.
The knives come out as O’Shea grapples with myriad threats to himself and the president he serves. The Pentagon, the CIA, the Corsican Mafia, and the Chicago Mob are all conspiring against him.
The debut novel by Ken Davenport, The Two Gates is an exciting new addition to the military, presidential, and alternative history tradition of W.E.B. Griffin, David Baldacci, Harry Turtledove, and Philip Roth.

Great attention to detail

What might have been. A very detailed alternative history with lots of fun references to people and things happening in the 60’s.

Fascinating what-if tale!

Davenport has done a magnificent job of filling in the blanks should Kennedy have survived the Dallas assassination. For those of us that lived through that tumultuous era, this is a fascinating read. The story moves quickly while not forsaking the tangled web that Kennedy had to reconcile. Any student of the ‘60s will find this very engrossing.
