“Dallas 1963” by Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis
Authors Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis set the stage in the years leading up to the assassination in their much-praised new book, “Dallas 1963.” Between the wealthiest man in the world, the country’s most influential preacher and several other key figures all living in the same city and aligned against Kennedy, the book shows that an assassination was arguably inescapable and destined to happen in Texas. “There were about seven or eight people in the city who were just incredibly forceful, charismatic and almost cinematic in their nature and they were all joined in this confederacy to overthrow John F. Kennedy,” Minutaglio tells Metro.
