I have to admit, I was unaware of the possibility of an attempt on JFK's life just prior to Dallas, but it appears there might have been. This book focuses on that attempt. The protagonist, one Nathan Heller, is apparently the subject of many novels by this author, who has an enviable writing record, including "Road to Perdition" and "Saving Private Ryan". Here, however, he has missed the target, by a wide margin. Mr. Heller, is at best cartoonish and as a member of a family with a long history of law enforcement, offensive and not in a good way ! Mr. Collins reliance on historical characters appears to be a crutch to avoid serious character development and if he were paid by the adjective, he'd be a billionaire on this novel, alone. His fetish with men's clothing is also disconcerting and his use of , ah, to represent Bobby Kennedy's Irish Boston accent is sophomoric !! Interesting story in the wrong hands.
