MARC JAMES WROTE his first book, Marc James is also the alias of a good friend of mine. I’m proud of him for having done what so many struggle to do, to finish a novel – and just to make everyone slightly jealous he wrote it in about three months! He’s given me the impetus or slap in the face of having finished his novel before me to crack on with mine. And this is no 150 pager, this is a fully realised novel weaving together aspects of the JFK assassination with fictional characters and involves a wee bit of time travel to boot.
The detail is really fantastic in terms of the real life characters that were behind JFK’s assassination, alleged or otherwise, and Marc manages to create a world where his fictional characters fit right in. The JFK assassination is still a hot topic after 50+ years and Marc brings in a whole lot of fresh material and evidence, circumstantial or not, that I never knew about previously.
The main character is Bobby Stinson a lawyer, who is supported by two time travelling Scots and they have the opportunity to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy and thereby change the future. The question is, can they do it? And will they survive? For a debut novel this is really a great book, the detail and research put into bringing sixties America to life is brilliant and the book develops and matures as the pages turn. Once you get going the plot begins to thicken and the story takes off.
