Was 'what she knew' enough to save JFK?
On the tragic day of John F. Kennedy's assassination, the nation mourns the loss of a president who stood for radical change and whose charisma carried him through the masses with never before seen devotion. Kennedy's determination to pay the U.S. back for his good fortune never wavered, with a presidency riddled in strife from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the Cold War and finally to the Vietnam conflict nothing was easy for him.
In this fictional novel, Kennedy isn't on a world tour or even in Texas in 1963. Instead he is in the Alps recovering from back surgery, a ruse that he had planned with Bobby, and his double months in advance of the tour. With the oval office tapped and the ever present Bobby running interference there was little likelihood that anyone would realize this was not the president. In fact, no one did.
Now, the world believes their beloved president is dead, there is no going back for Jack. While the decisions are difficult, it is far better to leave his 'death' alone than to risk political failure for his family clan and ridicule for his young widow.
Kennedy must now take on another face, name, and identity. Who is behind the assassination? What was the ultimate goal in killing the president? Was it to topple the American government and take down the Kennedys with it? Find out in this action packed conspiracy novel.

The President helped the first lady into the limo. He patted her hand and climbed in beside her. Just as the car began to roll he spotted someone on the sidewalk. No, it can’t be.
He did a double take as the car rounded the first corner and he could see the face clearly in the sunlight. It’s not, it can’t be. Marilyn?
As the car moved out of view she lifted her hand to her lips and blew her famous kiss his way.

Stansel was out of breath when he reached Latimer. “We don’t have him!”
“What do you mean, ‘we don’t have him’?” Latimer’s eyes were nearly popping out of his head. “What happened? The CIA said they had Oswald and Bannister!”
“They do have Bannister, but the other man is not Oswald.”

If you want to be SHOCKED and want to find out what could have happened with John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, then you will want to get your hands on this book and read Darkest Day by two awesome authors K. R. Hughes and T. L. Burns! They have came out with Darkest Day as part of the What She Knew trilogy and I could not put this book down! The first book Fateful Night was about the death and life of Marilyn Monroe and it really made you think about whether the events of her death were real or covered up in some kind of conspiracy! Darkest Day continues the story and makes your imagination run wondering what truly happened to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. These authors really invite you to get engrossed in the story and makes you think about the "What If's".
The Darkest Day plot is very well unexpected and a wonderful read if you are into JFK and Marilyn Monroe. It will keep you on the edge of your seat as you get further and further into the story line! So if you really want to find out about what could have happened in the eyes of two talented authors, I suggest you start with Fateful Night then move on to Darkest Day. They have put some fascinating historical facts in this book and switched things around. I believe you will be shocked at the "What If's" as I was. But you will have to read the book because I will not put any spoilers out! I can't wait till the next book comes out! Kudos to K. R. Hughes and T. L. Burns for writing a great trilogy!
