The Kennedy Trilogy is an iconic series of political thrillers based on the three major crises of the Kennedy era - Berlin 1961, Cuba 1962, and Dallas 1963 - as witnessed factually in the Oval Office and fictionally by a young CIA agent.
THE KENNEDY IMPERATIVEBook 1 of The Kennedy Trilogy: Berlin 1961While the construction of the Berlin Wall challenges JFK with the first major crisis of his Presidency, young CIA agent Philip Marsden is sent on his first mission across into East Berlin. While the tanks face off at Checkpoint Charlie, he uncovers the difficult truth about his Russian-born mother.

50 YEARS TO RESEARCH, 1 YEAR TO WRITE!
After countless books, movies and documentaries on the subject of JFK, what's different about THE KENNEDY TRILOGY? Well, it's neither dry analysis nor sensationalist pulp. Instead, I deliberately selected the genre of political thriller as a way to offer an intelligent, compelling read which would both inform and entertain in equal measure.
At the high end, we're inside the Kennedy White House with realistic portraits of Jack, Bobby and their deeply divided administration. At ground level, we're entwined in the espionage intrigue of our ongoing protagonist, the young CIA agent Philip Marsden, a low-grade analyst thrust into the geopolitical vortex, first in Berlin, then Cuba, and finally, inevitably, in Dallas.
In fact, the saga of JFK was my first introduction to a lifelong interest in geopolitics. I first began reading daily newspapers during the Berlin Crisis when the tanks stood facing each other at Checkpoint Charlie. Then came the Cuba Missile Crisis when we all came close to Armageddon. Finally, of course, there was great tragedy of the assassination.
From that point, I read everything I could on Kennedy and have been doing so ever since. I doubt there's a book on the subject I haven't read, a video I haven't seen, or a conspiracy theory I haven't heard. Yet the substance of these books remains my own original work, with conclusions developed over half a century.
I guarantee you will be totally absorbed.
