In 1977 the United States House of Representatives appointed a select committee to investigate the Kennedy assassination. After their review of the 1963 and 1964 FBI investigative reports and reviewing new evidence, their conclusions, released in September 1978 and as stated in House Resolution #1540: “We believe and the facts suggest that President John F. Kennedy was killed as the direct result of a conspiracy.” However, the second sentence is as interesting as the first, “Although, the persons responsible cannot be indentified at this time.” Thus, in 1978 the Untied States Government officially went on record stating the President of the United States was most likely murdered as the result of a conspiracy.
A Sentence of Death is a character and plot driven action novel about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, based on House Resolution #1540. This historical fiction novel describes how a plausible conspiracy could have truly resulted in the assassination of a U.S. President.
(Excerpt from A Sentence of Death:)
Bolting his rifle for the third time, the sniper placed the cross hairs on the back of
Kennedy’s head. This time his hand was steady and his aim true. Oswald squeezed the trigger and the missile raced to its mark, crashing into the back of Kennedy’s head, entering just to the right of the midline. It pierced the bone of the cranium and tore into the brain. With a spray of blood, shattered bone, and white and gray brain tissue, the remaining energy of the missile exploded a hole in the right side of Kennedy’s skull.The bullet exited with the debris of the wound, hit the interior windshield of the limousine, causing the safety glass to crack. With most of its energy spent, the bullet rebounded off the windshield, bounced harmlessly from the dashboard, clearing the first seat of the limousine, and unnoticed, fatefully landed in Governor Connally’s lap.
The assassin’s victim, the President of the Untied States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, collapsed, mortally wounded, falling into his wife’s lap. Jackie cried, “Oh my God! They have shot my husband…I love you Jack.”
