Robert Shows, Author


Kindle Book: $2.99

A Sentence of Death: Words that Killed a President is a step back into time and history. The novel is a meld of historical fact and fiction surrounding the assassination, stimulating the reader to a thought provoking analysis of what could have happened before and after that fateful day in Dallas, Texas.

Fifteen years after the assassination, the U.S Congress re-opened the Kennedy investigation. Their findings: “…the facts suggest that President Kennedy was killed as the direct result of a conspiracy.” This work offers plausible answers to the who, what, when, where and how of the assassination.

The character and action driven historical fiction novel creates an atmosphere of intrigue, treason, murder, cover-up, and eventual, but delayed disclosure of the men responsible for the death of a President.

As a student of mathematics and physics in his younger years, before switching to a curriculum of pre-med, his scientific studies gave him the background for his writings in Science Fiction.
