Description


The incredible story of one of America's most publicized--and surprising--criminal trials in history.

No crime in history had more eyewitnesses. On November 24, 1963, two days after the killing of President Kennedy, a troubled nightclub owner named Jack Ruby quietly slipped into the Dallas police station and assassinated the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. The event would spark questions and conspiracy theories for years to come.

Few, however, would remember the bizarre trial that followed three months later in Dallas, Texas. How exactly does one defend a man who was seen pulling the trigger in front of millions? And, more important, how did Jack Ruby, who fired point-blank into Oswald live on television, die an innocent man?

" A] riveting courtroom drama that feels as alive as it did in 1963." --NPR

"Engrossing, lively and expertly crafted...filled with colorful characters and having significant resonance for the present." --The Washington Post
