Frame 232 Book Review

Book Review of Frame 232
  by Wil Mara
"A Jason Hammond Novel"

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

      Do the words "Babushka Lady, grassy knoll, and Dealey Plaza" mean anything to you?  They should since they are all part of this nations history and are memories of President Kennedy's infamous assassination.  Speculation has gone on for 50 years on who the Babushka Lady is in Adam Zupruder's famous footage.  Wil Mara cleverly tells a tale putting together (fictionally, of course) the missing pieces of this ongoing public mystery.  This is the first installment of the Jason Hammond series, the next being a tale of cryptic documents from Howard Hughes.  Mara has been writing for almost three decades, and this latest work shows his prowess with a pen. 
    This book is very excellent.  I was completely captured from the prologue to the last word.  The chapters are short, which makes it perfect bedtime reading.  So many theories on the Babushka Lady and multiple gunman have been swirling around the better half of a century.  Wil Mara's fictional version is outstanding.  He's obviously done his homework on the assassination and events surrounding it.  His words paint brilliant pictures in your mind, as if you were there.  I'm waiting eagerly for the next installment featuring Jason Hammond, a genius with a dark past.  This book is highly recommended for mature teens and up.  There are graphic depictions of the murder, and also a pretty tough kidnapping and minor reference to rape.  Guns, hit men, deceptive government officials and the like are all part and parcel. 

(I received this book free from Tyndale Publishing as part of their blogging program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.") 

NEXT UP!  Reviews coming your way this Winter....
