The Thunderbird Conspiracy : 50th Anniversary of JFK Murder
The Thunderbird Conspiracy is the remarkable tale of Robert Kaye, a Hungarian freedom fighter who claimed he knew and collaborated with JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. R. K. Price's second novel is also a tale of a Nebraska farm boy who was a great admirer of President Kennedy and a true patriot who desperately wanted to believe his government's hurried conclusion that Oswald had no accomplice. Yet his own harrowing experience at the hands of his government created profound doubt in his mind, and it haunted him to his death. These two men, one willfully acting, the other a true victim, became entangled in the most notorious crime of the 20th century. This saga of intrigue and murder was revealed to the author on a wintry Colorado day about three weeks before the farm boy's ravaged heart gave out. That man was R. K. Price's uncle. His name was Bud Carlson. Price stashed away Bud's account of Robert Kaye, letting it lay dormant for nearly forty years until he could corroborate his uncle's story with the release of previously secret FBI files from the National Archives. With the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination Price has brought Robert Kaye and Bud Carlson back to life. Their incredible story will leave you questioning just how and why JFK was taken from America far too early.
