Imagine living without knowing your father yet the only thing that your mother ever says about him is, "he was a great man". This is what Fitzgerald Cavendish; illegitimate son of the 35th president, J.F Kennedy had to go through, until his mother Mary Jane Scott dies. It is in an envelope that this was hidden like a treasure. At this time, Cavendish also finds a message that could expose those behind J.F Kennedy's assassination.

In this book Kennedy's Revenge: the election of 2016 by Stephen L Rodenbeck shows how Cavendish takes advantage of this new found popularity to tell Americans about the cause of the problems they are facing. The fact that he is an ex-wall street executive enables him to talk about America's issues with ease. He does not stop there, instead he goes ahead to offer solutions on how to end Americans debt (which is at about $20 trillion), illegal immigration, health crisis and even terrorism.

I was actually shocked at his view of the reason behind World War II, that is, who really started it and why. Another thing that shocked me though it is interesting was how he made clear some of the under-investigated issues in American history.

In the beginning i thought there were two parallel stories being narrated, but as i continued, i was able to connect the two into one. It was definitely the best way to execute this great conspiracy brought about by the most powerful people in the world.

It must not have been easy revealing these powerful people who have the power to decide the fate of an entire nation. I have to acknowledge Annie van, she was Cavendish’ lover and she helps him with the puzzle on who his father was, but it was unfortunate that they had to temporarily break up. Another person is Caroline Kennedy, who was very resourceful to him.

Fitzgerald Cavendish runs for the presidency in the 2016 election with a third-party, against Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. His dream to free America from her problem doesn't come true, but I think even that far he did a great work, his revelation must have awaken Americans and even the entire world especially on the banking system.

I really felt sorry for Cavendish because these revelations made him enemies, especially with those in top offices. If this was the way to revenge his father's assassination, the question is, did he succeed?

The plot of the book is interesting with characters properly described. This book must have been well researched since the orderly compiled historical facts are correct. This made the book enjoyable and it was easy to read too.

The book had no grammatical errors. I only noticed a few typographical errors which had no effects. I therefore choose to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I would recommend it to lovers of conspiracies, American history and politics. It will also be appealing to those who love books on money and banking system.

The services of Mr. Cavendish to make America a debt-free state are appreciatable. Your review is helpful to understand American political history, that means you did a good job.

This book and its main character sound very ambitious in trying to solve America's problems! I'm glad you enjoyed the book. Your review has got me curious about the particular facts regarding the (shocking?) reason behind World War II? Hmm, I'm even ready for spoilers here :P Thank you for your review!

Books about conspiracies, American history, politics, and money and banking system appear too educational for me. I'm truly glad, you enjoyed reading this book. I remember way back when I was still studying, I used to feel so sleepy in my History teachers' discussions.

Latest Review: While the Universe Dreams by R A Whitridge

Normally when I read alternative history books, they are books where the historical change was long ago (Civil War era or earlier). This one is so recent, that I was actually a little confused by your review and had to go look up the book on Amazon to verify that it was, in fact, a fictional, alternative history, novel.
I think making the main character an illegitimate child of JFK is definitely an angle that helps aid in the suspension of disbelief. And once disbelief is suspended, it makes it really easy to bring in conspiracy theories and make them facts of the world the author is creating.
This sounds like a really interesting book. I don't know if I will read it, but I am glad to know it exists. Thank you for your review.

This seems a great book. Feels like a movie plot truly. Your review made me want to read the book. It always helps to listen to different perspectives in this case about America's political history.
