For most of his life, Bill Carter has been hearing two words that either struck fear in his heart or caused it to race for an entirely different reason: Get Carter. Early in his career, this Arkansas maverick established himself as the "go-to guy" in difficult situations. Whenever there was a tough job to do, the call went out to "Get Carter." A Secret Service agent when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Carter quickly found himself thrust squarely into the forefront of history. As one of the agents investigating the president's murder, Carter found himself convicted of one truth: that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin in Dallas, and he acted alone. No other member of the Warren Commission investigating team has told the inside story, until now. As an attorney in private practice after leaving the Secret Service, the Arkansan found himself being called upon repeatedly by the powerful leader of the Arkansas Congressional delegation, Rep.Wilbur Mills. When the Rolling Stones needed help negotiating with the State Department when they were denied entry into the States to tour, Mills suggested they get Carter. When Stones' guitarist Keith Richards found himself in legal trouble in Canada that could have meant the end of the powerful rock band, the command was issued, "Get Carter." Whether it was Jimmy Hoffa's pardon dilemma or Steve McQueen's body being held hostage in Mexico, Carter was the one to intervene. Get Carter is an insider's fascinating look at the mysterious world of politics, rock and roll and intelligence. Bill Carter is an attorney and television producer. He lives outside Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Marlow. Judi Turner is a freelance writer who lives in Nashville,Tennessee.
