Sinossi

Deadly Legacy, a finalist for The Eric Hoffer Award, is a fast-paced and suspenseful novel about a woman who discovers that her father, and not Lee Harvey Oswald, shot JFK, and was paid millions to do so. She joins forces with an FBI agent, and they combine their knowledge and skills, as well as those of a history professor who was in Dealey Plaza that November day, to try to figure out what really happened. But they are being pursued by a relentless assassin, who will stop at nothing to prevent their secret from getting out.

L'autore

Rebecca Cale Camhi, a native of West Virginia, earned a BA in English from Marietta College, Marietta, Ohio, and an MLS from SUNY at Buffalo, New York. She was a Fellow of the Western New York Writing Project, at Canisius College, also in Buffalo. This background was ideal preparation for her current professional work as a School Library Media Specialist, as well as her personal work writing poetry and fiction. Her first novel, Deepwater Mountain: A Novel of West Virginia, was published by McClain Printing in 2000. It was very well received, and is in the Appalachian Studies Bibliography for both West Virginia University and Marshall University, Huntington, West Virginia. Some of her poems have been published in the US and in the UK, and one of them garnered third place in an international poetry contest. Several other poems have received editor’s choice awards, and were recorded on poetry CDs. In new novel Deadly Legacy, she combines her coal mining heritage with her interest in conspiracy theories surrounding the JFK assassination. She and her husband live in Buffalo, and have two grown children.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Mystery! 19 novembre 2007
Di Marcia Caffrey - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I am a great fan of mysteries and loved this one based on the assassination of JFK. Rebecca Camhi has crafted a fast paced and well researched book with well drawn characters and a satisfying conclusion. The super short chapters keep the action moving along and make this story hard to put down.
FBI Special Agent, Tom Lee is trying to keep Bonnie Rollins from being murdered. Although, they know why someone is trying to kill her, they don't know who. This novel suggests a believable solution for the real mystery of who shot JFK in Dallas so long ago. I look forward to Rebecca's next novel!

5.0 su 5 stelle REVIEW OF CAMHI'S-DEADLY LEGACY 25 settembre 2007
Di Douglas L. Kincaid, Sr. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
Life is no party for Bonnie Rollins of Kanawha Falls, West Virginia; an English teacher who has just buried her father, Tibb Rollins in the soggy mire of the Oak Hill, West Virginia Cemetery.

Tibb is dead and gone! After suffering many years of physical and emotional abuse from this man, Bonnie has finally laid him to rest; but not without many unanswered questions.

Thus begins a story of hate, love, and retribution through ninety four chapters of suspense and intrigue. Many questions have to be answered in those exciting chapters from this new thriller by Rebecca Cale Camhi. Where did Tibb get two million dollars to leave her? What does the safe deposit key fit? How can there be any truth to Tibb's outlandish confession that he was a ruthless assassin?

Camhi writes with extraordinary ability about people caught in emotional and physical crosswinds; desires they cannot satisfy and dreams they cannot erase. It's the kind of territory where you expect to find the same old melodrama from prior authors, but none of that is present due to the blazing speed of her brief chapters.

Throughout this breathless story, Camhi knows how to keep her story surging with fresh energy; desperate and impassioned, erotic and moving-absolutely spellbinding.

The author wastes no time in leading you from chapter to chapter. Most chapters are no more than two or three pages at most. Each chapter reads like a compressed novel; a form that grabbed my interest very quickly.

If you have an interest in the JFK conspiracy theories, you will love Camhi's striking techniques of brief chapters, powerful characters and extraordinary settings and emotions.

Absolutely stunning; hang on!

Doug Kincaid from Kincaid, WV.
5.0 su 5 stelle A fresh approach from an up and coming author 1 gennaio 2012
Di Library lady - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Deadly Legacy takes a fresh, creative approach to the long held conspiracy theories and questions that have surrounded the JFK assassination for almost 50 years. What if Oswald was a decoy to throw the cops off the trail of the real assassin? Who was the mastermind behind the original plot and why did this person want JFK dead? What happened to the other people who knew about the plot?

The characters in this treatment of the conspiracy are realistic people; that is their appeal to the reader. The situations they are placed in ring authentic. The original assassin is a person who just can't be content to take his secret to his grave. He wants credit for his deed and gets it, albeit posthumously, by placing evidence of his connection to the crime in a safe deposit box in 1963 and patiently waiting for it to be discovered upon his death. The reader immediately connects with his heir, Bonnie Rollins, and the circumstances that place her in the situation of being the latest focus of the original conspirators. She must be kept from talking.

In the course of this work of historical fiction, the reader learns Bonnie's backstory, which places her on the cusp of a moral dilemma about her inheritance. But before she can even contemplate her next move, Camhi takes Bonnie and the reader on a wild ride. The action never lags and this reader was kept turning the pages eagerly.
