A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to Bill O'Reilly's bestselling Lincoln's Last Days. On a sunny day in Dallas, Texas, at the end of a campaign trip, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy is assassinated by an angry, lonely drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes briefly, but is hunted down, captured, and then shot dead while in police custody. Kennedy's Last Days is a gripping account of the events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century.  Author Bill O'Reilly vividly describes the Kennedy family's life in the public eye, the crises facing the president around the world and at home, the nation's growing fascination with their vigorous, youthful president, and finally, the shocking events leading up to his demise. Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's best-selling historical thriller Killing Kennedy , with an unforgettable cast of characters, page-turning action, and art on every spread,  Kennedy's Last Days is history that reads like a thriller. This exciting book will captivate adults and young readers alike.
