Surrounded by Enemies
What really would have happened next if John Kennedy survived the ambush at Dealey Plaza?
That’s the intriguing premise of this ambitiously researched novel by award-winning TV writer/producer Bryce Zabel, who boldly re-imagines a post-1963 political scenario that shocks readers without resorting to sci-fi gimmicks by focusing on what we now know about the secrets of the Kennedy presidency.
“Surrounded by Enemies: What If Kennedy Survived Dallas?” delivers a supercharged but plausible alternative narrative of the JFK era. After the charismatic president lives through a horrifying broad daylight assassination attempt, JFK and his attorney-general brother Bobby become the first conspiracy theorists determined to strike back at their enemies. The provocative concept brings to life the subsequent political earthquake and Constitutional crisis of the Kennedy years that never were, but surely could have been.
