Out of three million pages of assassination records released in 1993, this audiobook recreates the fateful battle of "Camelot" vs. Castro. Patrick Cullen's treatment of the unflattering and delicious details buried in secret files keeps the story moving without inappropriate theatrics. His diction complements every word except the Spanish ones. An example of Cullen's skill with audio is heard in his quotes, for which he effects a subtle change in the character of his voice, rather than with a full-blown characterization. The final result is an excellent and entertaining revelation of how JFK's mistakes with Cuba provoked a young communist to commit murder in Dallas.
