It is difficult to see another story that plays on the history of the JFK presidency and not have the moment where the multitude of conspiracies, the what you ‘thought’ you knew and the sense that the day was ingrained in the collective memory of the country. William Jenro Jr. has brought forward a theory that encompasses all of the theories out there, and then manages to set the elements into a historical context, presenting the reader with a possible solution that is not simple or directly one theory, but an amalgam of the many. While I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with his conclusions, the new information laid out in simply integrated and interrelated sections provided one of the more complete timelines leading to that fateful day in November 1963.
Jenro manages to present a complex tale that would rival some of the better political thrillers that I have read. Managing to show missteps and intentions that were often derailed by multiple agendas, and always influenced by the variant players and their own self-interest, even knowing the final end result of the tale doesn’t lessen the impact or intrigue in the least. While all of my information and knowledge is based in classroom learning and televised documentaries of the events, none have captured the connections in a manner that shows the events as a giant house of cards, where the outcome of one event will wholly impact the ultimate outcome without definitive answer.
Adding to the extensive research and unique presentation, Jenro’s bio shows a familial connection to the events: while not stating if there was family talk about the story, the relationship between he and a secondary player in the myriad of plots is a fun twist, whether relevant to the story or not.
