What if... Robert F. Kennedy had not been assassinated in June 1968? In the novel, the time in which RFK survives beyond 1968 is not a perfect journey leading to utopia. While many events occur that are both expected and welcome in trying to create a just and caring world, there are also surprises, ironies and dangerous developments along the way. The novel's ending is guaranteed to leave you thinking about the fluidity of history and the dictum "... for the want of a nail a kingdom was lost..."-though whose kingdom is lost and whose is gained is perhaps the most intriguing question.

This is a phony book, meant to mislead the public, just as in the case of the JFK murder.

Who knows what America would look like if John and Robert Kennedy would have survived. One thing is sure - it would be rather different from Trump's Big Business America. Two brothers had their own ideas of a Free America. JFK wanted to tax the oil companies, rid America from the grip of international bankers and withdraw from Vietnam. Too many conflicting points with the Establishment. Dr. John Coleman in "The Conspirators' Hierarchy" (1992, 1997) tells that an international committee voted for the removal of JFK and Dr. Coleman also tells in his book who and how did the action. Oswald was a scapegoat, and the preparations for the action lasted 2 yrs. The 3 agents who took JFK in cross-fire were foreigners and the system covered up for them. Now, about Robert's assassination: That poor mentally ill and mind controlled Sirhan was also a scapegoat; I read in a book of Jim Keith that witnesses saw a polka dress woman run away from the scene, shouting: "we shot him!" And there were 7 bullets shot in that basement, whereas the pistol of Sirhan contained 6 bullets only. The person who shot the 7th bullet into Robert's ear was the one who stood beside him. The whole investigation was a fraud. Well, the Kennedy brothers wanted too much to shake the Establishment, which removed them.

Nice trick on author on rose-tinted what-if alternative history if Robert Kennedy survived assassination attempt to cautionary tale on final chapter & appendix as the sore loser conservatives strike back causing second civil war.
This is a long thoughtful even-handed novel with well known & obscure historical characters not an conspiracy theory "my way or the highway" fringe book.

The book dragged a bit at times but overall not a bad read.
