Top Down

Coming soon: Top Down: A Novel of the Kennedy Assassination by Jim Lehrer.

"As Air Force One touches down in Dallas, ambitious young newspaper reporter Jack Gilmore races to get the scoop on preparations for President Kennedy's motorcade. Will the bubble top on the presidential limousine be up or down? Down, according to veteran Secret Service agent Van Walters. The decision to leave the top down and expose JFK to fire from above will weigh on Van's conscience for decades."

An interesting side note: As a young reporter in Texas, Lehrer actually witnessed the decision to keep the Kennedy car's top down.
