Grade 8–10—It is difficult to understand why this title is included in a series that looks at UFOs, alien abductions, ghosts, and vampires. While all of the previous subjects are mysteries of an otherworldly nature, Kennedy's assassination is a fact of history. Chapters address the Camelot appeal of JFK and Jackie, the history of the anti-Kennedy sentiment in the South, gruesome details of the murder and its aftermath, and the hunt for the assassin. The majority of the book poses suggestions for possible conspiracies. The questions regarding the number of bullets fired and how they entered and exited Kennedy's body have cast doubt on the Warren Commission's findings for decades, yet the only discernible new information in this volume is that modern technologies now allow experts to look at the evidence in different ways. The sidebars of eyewitness quotations, "Did you know?" segments, and photos bring the incident to life. Over time there have been dozens of books written about this sad chapter in American history. Libraries already owning a solid account of the assassination and its investigation can skip this one.—Joanne K. Cecere, Monroe-Woodbury High School, Central Valley, NY
