The Last Word on Camelot
The JFK assassination is b-a-a-a-ck!

If you thought that you'd heard the last, definitive gasp of creative content regarding conspiratorial theories when Director Stone splashed his take on this event across the big screen, then you were wrong. A Brit has come up with and a few fresh ideas of his own!

Jon Symons brings all of us a fresh take on American politics from November 22, 1963, right up to recent times. You'll not only find his perceptions about Camelot entertaining but he has a few notions about the motivations that may have driven the Elder Bush's political choices, too.

In spite of my being jaded, I didn't find The Day After Tomorrow a snooze. The characters are fresh and the plot is stitched together like carefully designed basketry. All the basics of a thriller are artfully woven without a chapter heading anywhere in sight.

I only found one minor facet disconcerting and that, I'm sure, will get fixed when the book hits the big time in the US. The protagonist, John Capriotti, is the nephew of
a mafia boss. In narrative is in his point of view, he sometimes speaks a bit like an Englishman. His dialogue is sometimes flavored with some of the same stuff. For an Italian American to call diapers "nappies" is a bit disconcerting. I'm sure they'll fix this for the American edition but I'm glad I didn't wait for that. This story is way too much fun to let a trivial keep you from reading it now.
