Chicago, September 1964. Beatlemania sweeps the nation, the
Vietnam War looms, and the Warren Commission prepares to blame a “lone nut”
assassin for the killing of President John F. Kennedy. But as the post-Camelot
era begins, a suspicious outbreak of suicides, accidental deaths, and outright
murders decimates assassination witnesses. When Nathan Heller and his son are
nearly run down on a city street, the private detective wonders if he himself
might be a loose end …
Soon a faked suicide linked to President Johnson’s corrupt
cronies takes Heller to Texas, where celebrity columnist Flo Kilgore implores
him to explore that growing list of dead witnesses. With the blessing of Bobby
Kennedy—former US attorney general, now running for the New York Senate—Heller
and Flo investigate the increasing wave of violence that seems to emanate from
the notorious Mac Wallace, rumored to be LBJ’s personal hatchet man.
Fifty years after JFK’s tragic death, Collins’s rigorous
research for Ask Not raises new
questions about the most controversial assassination of our time.
