More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of non-fiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal muder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy - and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent America into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath. In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about American book of the year.

I haven't had the opportunity to finish reading this book, so can't review it completely. Mr. O'Reilly usually does a very good job with facts and putting them together in a readable form.

No wonder Bill O'Reilly is such a best-selling author. He presents his case in easy-to-understand language, takes the reader on a step-by-step journey, and fills his books with history lessons. Great book!
Publishers Weekly, 2012-12-24 Bill O'Reilly and Dugard deliver a riveting account of the John F. Kennedy assassination that illuminates key moments in the life of the 35th president, as well as the events that led up to his death. Covering everything from Kennedy's experiences during World War II and the schemes of Harvey Lee Oswald to the Cuban Revolution and the alienation of Lyndon B. Johnson by the Kennedy brothers, the author weaves a coherent and intriguing narrative that is enlivened in this audio edition. While O'Reilly's work on television might have prepared him for narration, the conservative commentator will surprise some listeners with the quality of his performance. His deep, powerful voice, timing, emphasis, and tone create tangible tension throughout. Though he is less convincing during more sentimental moments, O'Reilly's narration proves a great boon to this historical account, which will thoroughly engage listeners. A Henry Holt hardcover.
