The time had come, she decided, to rid herself of this burden, to take the steps necessary to put the matter to rest once and for all. And the first step, she knew—against every instinct and desire—was to watch that film.
During the reading of her mother’s will, Sheila Baker discovers that she has inherited everything her parents ever possessed, including their secrets. A mysterious safe-deposit box key leads her to the answers to one of history’s greatest conspiracies: Who killed John F. Kennedy? Not only does she have the missing film, revealing her mother as the infamous babushka lady, but she has proof that there was more than one shooter.

On the run from people who would stop at nothing to keep secrets buried, Sheila turns to billionaire sleuth Jason Hammond for help. Having lost his own family in a tragic plane crash, Jason knows a thing or two about running from the past. With a target on their backs and time running out, can Jason finally uncover the truth behind the crime that shook a generation—or will he and Sheila become its final victims?

My Review:
This was a fabulous book. Well wrote and executed from beginning to end. Fast paced and engaging characters that are well developed and likable. I adored how this book weaved conspiracy theories, research and the infamous Babushka Lady all into one. Anytime you can immerse your self in a book to the point you feel like you are watching the events unfold, its a good thing.

Why care about a murder that happened fifty years ago? The Kennedy assassination gave the American people one more reason to distrust our government and how underhanded they can be in a coverup. Worse yet is it still goes on today. What really did happen that day I guess we will never know, but it sure is intriguing to stop and think about it and Mr. Mara gives us alot to think about in his book full of suspense and mystery with just a little romance too.

If you have not picked up a copy yet, I suggest you do. Its a great read that pulls fact and fiction together into one and any history buff, conspiracy therapist or any other individual with a slight curiosity of this historic event is sure to love this book.
