“If time travel, assassination, history and conspiracies don’t get you hooked then I honestly don’t know what will.” — Daniel Pearson -The LL Book Review —
“This is a great book for both adult, teens” —Rita Reviews—
Interloping time travelers from the year 2028--Emma, a dynamic seventeen year old; Ethan, her impulsive twin brother; Zak, a very special best friend, and their time travel guide, Dr. Currant---an eccentric, well-preserved "baby boomer" inventor--spin back the clock to stop the Chicago assassination of President Kennedy and resurrect the American Dream.
This is a time-traveling road show filled with nostalgia and nastiness, fact and fantasy, and hope for the future. By 2028, decades of official denial and concealment have left Americans with an empty shell of a country constructed on a foundation of a fictional history. But the quartet from the future is determined to rework the past to make their world a better place.
They leave the monotonous madness of the year 2028, a dystopia-utopia, a time of no privacy, and total government control--and experience the joy, sadness and danger of an earlier, bolder era filled with hope for the future. On the way, they meet Ferrie, Banister, Oswald, the mysterious Umbrella Man, the Three Tramps and other conspiratorial characters. As they travel in the bizarre, bloody world of 1960's American politics, their retro-quest to rescue JFK exposes a stunning new view of the "Crime of the Century".
Based on the actual facts of the Kennedy assassination in Dallas and the recently discovered JFK precursor plot, often called the “JFK Chicago Attempt”.
