About this Item

456 pages. America. 1960. John F. Kennedy has just been elected President. But the Cold War is close to boiling point, the arms race is at an all-time high, and the Soviet Union has beaten America into space. Anti-Communism fever is rampant and paranoia about Castro's Cuba is running high. The Mafia also have a problem with Castro - and they have no scruples about hiring Tom Jefferson, America's best assassin, to kill him. But Jefferson has his own agenda, his own target, much closer to home. Bookseller Inventory # 008407
