    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBTom Jefferson is good with a rifle Scratch that Tom is an expert marksman and having fine tuned his skills as a sniper serving his country he’s now making a tidy living hiring out his ability to deliver sudden death to anyone with deep enough pockets Set in 196061 the man with the money on this occasion is mobster Sam Giancana and his target is Cuba’s political leader Fidel Castro And so this tale begins with a mix of known facts names and events most readers will recognise blended with fictional elements comprising a number of rumours that have done t

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBDear Lord what a mess I think I was one of three people who really liked Esau and I tried to read one of the Bernie Gunther series and kept groaning at the sheer goofiness of it all so I'm all over the map with this dudeLet's start with the problems There are two protagonists oh yeah; the book abruptly changes focus halfway through This in and of itself wouldn't be a problem if either one of them were remotely interesting Instead we get a complete cipher of an assassin and a disgraced bent FBI agent Several major characters are left dangling in one case somewhat literally It's too damn long I thought about elaborating but some dude said brevity is the soul of witOn the other hand the ending is a stunner that neatly integrates with known historical factsI probably would have stopped reading this one halfway through if I didn't have an unhealthy interest in the Kenne

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBThe Shot is a book I would recommend as far as entertainment goes and there's a lot of it But as far as plot structure and narrative it's flabby loose ended fluff with a disappointing ending which I will not reveal Kerr seems to skirt over the geo political issues in favour of strong characterisations and a highly interesting and ambiguous title character who ultimately shows himself to be less ambiguous in the final chapters with a truly reprehensible supporting cast the light dusting of political forecasting and satire is distracting The novel was mainly let down because the narrative is loose and flabby the suspense goes wide of the mark and the plot structure is superfluous What isn't at all distracting is the overall uality of the writing and dialogue Kerr has a keen ear for vernacular and the descriptive scenes interlaced with historical references are fantastic here is a writer of genuine uality with no delu

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBIt seems everyone has a take on the JFK assassination Officially it was kooky Oswald Or the Mob Or the Cubans Or the Russkies Or LBJ Or Norma JeanPhilip Kerr writing at the end of the 1990s history only seems to bring confusion takes a shot at JFK but comes up blanks That's because in his elegantly written thriller the assignment is just an attempt to stop Kennedy

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBThe Shot was a startling vivid read that mixed gore profanity a interesting plot a lonely but brilliant sniper and the JFK assassination A book so shocking it forces the reader to think and contemplate the strange passage of history Philip Kerr did an excellent job at creating a thriller that seems excitingly genuine carefully crafted and well balanced The startling implications of the ending made this an even disturbing yet thrilling work of fiction

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBA marvellous story about an assassination plan on JFK BEFORE he became president All sorts of dirty tricks from the usual suspects CIA FBI the Mafia anti Castro Cubans and Castro's intelligence service Lots of false trails twists and turns with a cast of characters almost all of whom are definitely not to be trusted and most of whom have blood on the

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBMy 2008 one sentence review said 'Well paced JFK conspiracy explaining why the Bay of Pigs failed An assassin the mob FBI CIA and Secret Service are the main players so nothing really new added to the conspiracy theory but an interesting take' Yet again a book I have completely forgotten makes me feel that that's for reason as some of the better 2008 reads I remember very well Although this is one of the higher rated books I've forgotten it's most likely the JFK subject matter that earned the 6 out of 12

    The Shot PDF ´ é PDF/EPUB early learning.co shot kindle, The Shot PDF/EPUBI enjoy Philip Kerr’s Gunther series but this was a disappointment As it is set in 1960 the reader knows that neither Castro nor Kennedy will be assassinated So what is the story? A complicated unproductive little plot which takes ages to unfold and involves a host of nasty characters Some of the writing has Kerr’s familiar wit but a lot of it is dull I didn’t like the surprise ending either as it seemed illogical and only necessary because Kennedy couldn’t actually be shot and Jefferson the assassin couldn’t have missed I’m sure the research into Cuba and the ‘mob’ is thorough and well interpreted but I wasn’t that interested in it A shame as I’d looked forward to the book have to say I thought it was about JFK’s assassination but I didn’t mind that it wasn’t just that it didn’t seem to be about much at all
