About the Book

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in broad daylight, as his motorcade made its way through downtown Dallas. Perched in a sniper's test on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, Lee Harvey Oswald, a misanthropic, self-proclaimed Marxist, altered the course of history. Two days later, a mentally unbalanced strip club owner, Jack Ruby avenged the death of President Kennedy, when he Oswald to death in the basement of the Dallas Police station.

In one of the most traumatic weekends in American history, the lives of four men converged in tragic fashion. Emerging from political obscurity, Lyndon Johnson ascended to the presidency after Kennedy was murdered. Two obscure figures, Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, became household names.

The incredible sequence of events in the fall of 1963, shattered the dreams of generation. With the fast paced action of a suspenseful novel, "Rendezvous in Dallas" brings history alive, proving that fact is often more compelling than fiction.
