Synopsis

It¹s 1960, the height of the Cold War, but for Dante Amato of the Chicago Mob, life is anything but cold. Charismatic and movie-star handsome, Dante has settled comfortably into his role as The Outfit¹s man in Hollywood and Vegas. Dante¹s older brother, Aldo, a CIA agent, couldn¹t be more disapproving of his brother¹s life. Yet when Dante is ordered to meet with a beautiful Cuban go-between named Marissa del Valle, and then mob boss Sam Giancana summons him to Miami to discuss a U.S. Government commission to hit the Cuban dictator, Dante¹s first call is to his brother.

Is it a set-up? Or a chance for the mob to restart the flow of gambling and drug money from Havana? And what about Bobby Kennedy¹s war against The Mob? ³Bobby Kennedy is a snake,² says Jimmy Hoffa to Santo Trafficante. And how do you kill a snake? You cut off its head. ³ As this spellbinding thriller by E. Duke Vincent unfolds, a gripping story emerges, masterfully connecting the dots between the Kennedys, Castro, The Mob, the CIA . . . and the Grassy Knoll.

Vincent does a fine job of moving the bull’s-eye from Castro to JFK, conjuring up the blood-lust resentment of mobster Sam Giancana, who delivered Chicago for the Kennedy campaign, only to be pursued even more fanatically by Robert Kennedy.

In an introductory note to his fourth novel, Vincent (Mafia Summer) gives credit to the theory that the Mafia was involved in planning JFK's assassination—and claims that he's identified the gunman on the legendary grassy knoll.

I think Kennedy wanted to appear strong, but I also think he trusted that he would be protected.
