'Mighty impressive ... Baker has the audacity to revisit the web of conspiracies surrounding the JFK assassination ... considering the subject matter, I was not expecting to even like the book, but was blown away.' Maxim Jakubowski, LOVEREADING

Nick Alston, a Los Angeles private investigator, is hired to find the kidnapped son of America's richest and most hated man.

Hastings, a mob hitman in search of redemption, is also on the trail. But both men soon become ensnared by a sinister cabal that spreads from the White House all the way to Dealey Plaza.

Decades later in Dallas, Alston's son stumbles across evidence from JFK conspiracy buffs that just might link his father to the shot heard round the world.

Violent, vivid, visceral: FEVER CITY is a high--octane, nightmare journey through a Mad Men-era America of dark powers, corruption and conspiracy.
