Kennedy's Avenger - Signed
The New York Times bestselling authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher reveal the story behind one of the most publicized criminal trials in American history.
No crime in history had more eyewitnesses. On November 24th, 1963, two days after the assassination of President Kennedy, a troubled nightclub owner named Jack Ruby emerged from the ensuing chaos and assassinated the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, as he was moved into a police station. Millions of Americans witnessed the killing on live television, and the event would capture their imaginations for years to come.
But under the long shadow cast by the assassination of America’s beloved president, few would remember the bizarre trial that followed three months later in Dallas, Texas. How exactly does one defend a man who committed this crime in front of millions? And, more importantly, how did Jack Ruby, who fired his weapon point blank into Oswald live on television, die an innocent man?
Featuring a vivid cast of characters, authors Dan Abrams and David Fisher unveil the truth behind the first major trial of the television century. While it was Jack Ruby who appeared before the jury, it would ultimately be the American legal system – and the civil rights of the accused - that would be placed on trial.
