This romantic thriller takes a fictional “what if” look at the JFK assassination. Suppose accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald had lived to defend himself. Imagine if 50 years after the assassination someone stepped forward to reveal the truth of what happened that day. What if the assassination was a conspiracy and the impact of those revelations reached into the 21st century? This is the story of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. You’ll never look at your neighbors the same way.
“An Intriguing View!!!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lexa Harpell
Fifty years on we are still fascinated by the stories which surround JFK’s assassination – including myself. Much has been written and retold – yet ‘View from the Sixth Floor: An Oswald Tale’ is a story like no other I have read.
This compelling, romantic alternative tale held me from the beginning to the end. The author’s brilliant imagination and writing skills weaves two main elderly characters Olivia and Bill into an intriguing plot and touches on age defying emotions. The love story was beautifully written without being typical.
I was enthralled with this new twist, which did not disappoint – the pace grew right to the end. Quite a talent and adventurous to write about this ‘what if’ subject and hold the reader with another view to ponder on this evergreen subject.
A Highly Recommend Read!
