    Updated with the latest evidence, Pulitzer Prize finalist Anthony Summers’s essential, acclaimed account of President Kennedy’s assassination
    “He was holding out his hand . . . He looked puzzled . . . Then he slumped in my lap . . . I kept bending over him saying, ‘Jack, Jack, can you hear me? I love you, Jack . . .’ The seat was full of blood and red roses . . . .” —Jacqueline Kennedy, recalling the fatal moment in Dallas Fifty years on, most Americans still feel they have not been told the truth about President Kennedy’s death. Chief Justice Warren, who chaired the first inquiry, said “some things” that “involve security” might not be released in our lifetime. Millions of pages of assassination records were finally made public in the late 1990s. Yet the CIA is withholding more than a thousand documents under “national security”—until 2017. Why? Why hold these records back if—as we were told half a century ago—Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone assassin? Anthony Summers set out to write a reliable account of the murder mystery that haunts America.Not in Your Lifetime, in this fresh edition, is one of the finest books written on the assassination.

Editorial Reviews

  • “Fresh and important . . . We rush on through [Summers’s] narrative as if we were reading an artful thriller.” —The New York Times “An awesome work, with the power of a plea as from Zola for justice.” —Los Angeles Times “The closest we have to that literary chimera, a definitive work on the events in Dallas.” —The Boston Globe

  • Not in Your Lifetime is what some refer to as the Bible of JFK literature. It shows us how to look at both sides of the assassination debate with a critical eye.” —Jacob Carter, Before History Dies
