Philip Kerr has won widespread critical acclaim for this imaginative reworking of the mythology surrounding the John F. Kennedy assassination. The Shot offers fresh twists and turns while capturing the colorful and turbulent America of 1960. Tom Jefferson is a hitman—and a good one. He’s just taken down a former Nazi from 150 yards away. His talent is noticed by the Mob, which is fresh off rigging the presidential election for Kennedy. Tom accepts a contract to eliminate Fidel Castro, which would open Cuba to organized crime. But when he uncovers stunning information about the new president, Tom drops Castro from his agenda and fixes his crosshairs on Kennedy instead. Now the very people who hired him are his enemies, and the race to a gripping climax is on. The Shot is filled with enough plot twists and nail-biting suspense to captivate conspiracy theorists and anyone who loves a taut thriller. Narrator George Guidall moves the excitement along at a feverish pace.
