Abstract:

"Nearly forty years ago, all of America was watching as Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused killer of John F. Kennedy, was being transferred to a new jail. Suddenly, a man stepped from the crowd of spectators and shot him, sending Oswald and his secrets to the grave and launching decades of speculation. Jack Ruby, a Texas nightclub owner, claimed his act was a spur-of-the-moment decision--that he saw an opportunity to avenge the death of his president and acted on it. As BIOGRAPHY details, there are many who question his version of the events, but perhaps the answer lies in looking at Ruby's life before he stepped into the spotlight. Drawing on the memories of those who knew him best, including his brother Earl, this illuminating profile follows the future killer from his rough-and-tumble Chicago childhood to Dallas, and those close to the case examine his actions - and possible motivations - on that fateful day."--Publisher's website.
