    James Ellroy’s dark view of the 1960’s – with a Kennedy assassination scheme – is in AMERICAN TABLOID and COLD SIX THOUSAND.

  2. The excellent detective series by Max Allan Collins featuring Nate Heller has turned to the Kennedy era. Last year’s “Bye Bye, Baby” concerning the death of Marilyn Monroe takes a look at her involvement with the Kennedys, Sinatra and the Lawfords. This month “Target Lancer” will publish as Nate Heller looks at the world surrounding the Kennedy assassination. Collins provides a great story steeped in thorough research. This are not to be missed.

    Yeah, Collins has written about how he spends a lot of time researching the Heller stories.
