I actually did an interview with Susan Sloate back in the early days of November last year. (Susan’s Interview) and that is how I first became introduced to, Forward to Camelot. I was intrigued back then, but had so many books queued, along with other interviews and of course in the middle of writing my own sequel that I had no choice but to put it on the back burner. Well, I finally got to it, and I have to say… I’m very glad I did.
WHERE WERE YOU THE DAY KENNEDY WAS SAVED? On the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes a new edition of the extraordinary time-travel thriller first published in 2003 with a new Afterword from the authors. On November 22, 1963, just hours after President Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in as President aboard Air Force One using JFK’s own Bible. Immediately afterward, the Bible disappeared. It has never been recovered. Today, its value would be beyond price. In the year 2000, actress Cady Cuyler is recruited to return to 1963 for this Bible—while also discovering why her father disappeared in the same city, on the same tragic day. Finding frightening links between them will lead Cady to a far more perilous mission: to somehow prevent the President’s murder, with one unlikely ally: an ex-Marine named Lee Harvey Oswald. Forward to Camelot: 50th Anniversary Edition brings together an unlikely trio: a gallant president, the young patriot who risks his own life to save him, and the woman who knows their future, who is desperate to save them both. History CAN be altered … (Susan Sloate/Kevin Finn)
This is one of the best written historical Sci-Fi works I have ever read. The amount and quality of research, Sloane and Finn must have undertaken to bring about the amazing details this work contains, not only on the Kennedy Assassination, but the lifestyles, attitudes, and realities of the American 60’s, and all its goings on, gives the reader a true sense of being there. As if that isn’t enough, the story’s fictional components are fused together flawlessly to bring out the compelling conspiracy theories surrounding the assassination. I am completely sold on why this work was optioned for Hollywood Film production. I for one, would love to see it come to the big screen. An enthralling work.
Need I say, five stars?
