The New York Times bestselling authors of Mrs. Kennedy and Me share the stories behind the five infamous, tragic days surrounding JFK’s assassination, published in remembrance of the beloved president on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.

Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK’s presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys—America’s royal family. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie’s guard, experienced those days firsthand. Hill provides a moment-to-moment narration evoking the feelings and emotions behind the images—clearing up the persistent conspiracy misconceptions along the way.

Told movingly by a man who still wishes he could undo it all, Five Days in November is a rare and deeply personal look at the assassination that affected the entire world and changed the United States forever. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A riveting, stunning narrative...Among hundreds of books about the assassination, this is the most compelling because Hill lived it.”

    Herald-Review

  • “What this book—whose contents we’ve waited fifty years for—lacks in artistry, it makes up for in immediacy. Hill was one of the Secret Service agents beside J.F.K.’s car at the time of his assassination, and he managed to clamber onto the trunk in an attempt to protect the chief executive and his wife. Hill continues to feel guilty over the president’s death. His account offers new, minute details of the events in Dallas and Washington, DC, immediately before and after J.F.K.’s death.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Since Hill was part of the secret service detail assigned to protect the president and his wife, his firsthand account of those days is unique…[with a] chronological approach, beginning before the presidential party even left the nation's capital on November 21…Chronology, photographs, and personal knowledge combine to make a memorable commemorative presentation.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “As the Secret Service agent in charge of the first lady’s detail, Hill is known for leaping onto the back of the car that carried the injured JFK, pushing Jackie back into the seat…The highlights are Hill’s personal remembrances.”

    BookPage

  • “As Jacqueline Kennedy’s secret service guard, Hill leapt onto the car in Dallas after shots resounded and hung on for the race to the hospital. Here he offers a minute-by-minute insider’s account of unfolding events.”
