Product Description
A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy,
and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln.


More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of nonfiction 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 murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy-and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation 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 book of the year.

Bill O'Reilly is the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor, the highest-rated cable news show in the country. He also writes a syndicated newspaper column and is the author of several number-one bestselling books.

Martin Dugard is the New York Times bestselling author of several books of history. His book Into Africa: The Epic Adventures of Stanley and Livingstone has been adapted into a History Channel special. He lives in Southern California with his wife and three sons.

Like most people I remember where I was when President Kennedy was shot. I was fourteen years old. I was in gym class. They announced it on the intercom. The book brought back all the memories of his death and the days that followed. I learned lots of new details from the book. I liked learning some of personal aspects of those involved. It showed even though he was a great man he had his dark secrets. I thought It was very good from a historical aspect as well. I read "Killing Jesus" first and was very impressed with the history. I will now order "Killing Lincoln."

I read Killing Kennedy and could NOT put it down. I was a teenager when Kennedy was murdered and remember everything about that terrible time in our history. This book has helped me understand the controversy and conspiracy theories that existed. Thanks again for sharing this information with us.

Tremendously good research and writing. I enjoyed the book very much and learned so many things from it.
  Pamela P. (PRESCOTT, AZ) on June 26, 2013
I just finished reading Killing Kennedy and found it very interesting and informative. I was 17 when Kennedy was killed and of course I remember well the days following that event, but politics in general was not something that I followed very closely. It was interesting for me to read the events and the "behind the scenes" stories. It gave me a whole new perspective on his relationships with various people including (but not limited to) Jackie, Bobby and LBJ and also the Bay of Pigs, missile crisis, civil rights, etc. A real history lesson for someone who should know more having lived through it. Thanks for a great book! Also enjoyed Killing Lincoln very much.
