A CRUEL AND SHOCKING ACT The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination

by | Read by Robert Petkoff, Philip Shenon

History • 23.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Shenon's exhaustive analysis of the Warren Commission investigation is a dense work that might present a challenge to listeners. Fortunately, narrator Robert Petkoff's crisp tone and even pacing advances the text efficiently while still allowing time to process the extraordinary detail the author's years of research unearthed. The list of familiar and more obscure participants is formidable, but Petkoff manages to give the personalities distinct voices with simple modulations of pace and intensity. Along with Shenon's clear, organized style, Petkoff's skilled narration accomplishes smooth transitions as faces and locales shift along the tortuous course of this controversial investigation. All the questions surrounding JFK's assassination may never be answered, but this fascinating audiobook offers an excellent overview of this dark period.
