In End of Days, James L. Swanson, the New York Times bestselling author of Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer, brings to life the minute-by-minute details of the JFK assassination—from the Kennedys' arrival in Texas through the shooting in Dealey Plaza and the shocking aftermath that continues to reverberate in our national consciousness fifty years later.The assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, has been the subject of enduring debate, speculation, and numerous conspiracy theories, but Swanson's absorbing and complete account follows the event hour-by-hour, from the moment Lee Harvey Oswald conceived of the crime three days before its execution, to his own murder two days later at a Dallas Police precinct at the hands of Jack Ruby, a two-bit nightclub owner.Based on sweeping research never before collected so powerfully in a single volume, and illustrated with photographs, End of Days distills Kennedy's assassination into a pulse-pounding thriller that is sure to become the definitive popular account of this historic crime for years to come.

Well written and well researched. Excellent writing style.
Good synthesis of information from other sources. A great general interest book about the Kennedy assassination. On a personal note: My grandmother and mother lived in the Austin TX area in 1963 and planned to watch the late afternoon/early evening presidential motorcade.

Star Gladiator appears at this point to have actually believed anyone cared who really did the dirty deed. As my mommy used to tell me, "Nobody cares...." She was no great intellect, but she had a heart, an Irish heart. / I have studied this coup d'état for a long, long, time and I know that Star Gladiator came pretty close to the truth. It must have eaten him up, inside, for I don't see him 'round much anymore. Perhaps the snow got him up in Redmond, last week or so. It did kill four people whose bodies were noticed when they were dead, but not before.// Not all the CIA pseudo-history books have been written in that fab new building that JFK had built for them, before being offed in a plot cooked up by them.

". . .descriptions of her husband's (Lee Oswald) failed attempt on the life of right-wing General Edwin Walker." I'm not going to waste time dissecting this dreadful book, nor the author, Swanson's, unfortunate misinformational careers at various shill tanks (the reviewer called them "think tanks" ? ? ?) but focus just on the ALLEGED attack on anti-Kennedy ultra-rightwinger, John Bircher, General Edwin Walker. After Walker's dismissal from the US armed forces, for his indoctrination of subordinates with John Birch Society material (founded the by Koch family, of course), Walker took part in armed conflicts interfering with James Meredith's attempt to matriculate at University of Mississippi, and later Walker's possible involvement in the deaths of two reporters, and Attorney General Bobby Kennedy issued a warrant for Walker's arrest for " ..seditious conspiracy, insurrection and rebellion." Some years later, on June 23, 1976, and again on March 16, 1977, Edwin Walker would be arrested and charged with multiple counts of public lewdness at a Dallas park, to which Walker pled guilty. (The only thing about the entire Warren Commission fantasy which is remotely believable is that Lee Oswald, a fan of JFK's, might actually take a shot at the wackadoodle Edwin Walker, and miss from 10 feet away (as Lee was a notoriously poor shot), but still no viable evidence was presented to concretely establish this allegation, unlike the damning criminal record and military record of Gen. Edwin Walker.
