In tragic November gunshots rang out in Dallas and reverberated around the world, marking the loss of America’s beloved president, John F. Kennedy. The public has forever remained skeptical of who really fired those fateful shots and where they originated. JFK and the Green Beret does not attempt to prove who pulled the trigger, instead this historical novel examines leading conspiracy theories and intriguing circumstances surrounding the assassination by creating a page-turning thriller set in the rugged last frontier of Alaska.
Special Forces Captain Roy Aston survives an ambush in Southeast Asia after the White House recalls the rescue mission, violating the hallowed credo ‘Never leave a man behind.’ The Green Beret, intent on avenging the death of his men, returns to Washington and retraces the cease-and-desist order to the national security advisor, Charles Albert. The president’s advisor, fearing for his own life, claims Kennedy issued the order to be with Aston’s wife, modernizing the story of King David and Uriah. Outraged, the Green Beret responds by doing what he’s trained to do: kill.
He murders the young president in Dealey Plaza and flees to the vacuous frigid North. The authorities fail to pursue him, believing to have found the assassin: Lee Harvey Oswald, a patsy set up by the cowardly national security advisor to conceal the lie that triggered Kennedy’s calamitous demise.
JFK and the Green Beret begins in the Alaskan wilderness where Roy Aston has been hiding for more than forty years. Aston, plagued with vivid nightmares and racked with encumbering guilt, goes to the FBI to recount his unwonted story, determined to clear his conscience before he dies. Lance Chambers, the Assistant Special Agent in Charge, listens to the old man’s story and subsequently investigates the most famous unsolved mystery in American history.
