The Mongoose Deception (C J Floyd Mysteries) (C J Floyd Mysterie
by : Robert Greer
When Cornelius McPherson, a former highway maintenance man, finds himself trapped in a tunnel he helped create decades earlier, he's horrified to discover the well-preserved, frozen arm of a fellow worker. McPherson remembers a secret the man whispered to him - that he knew who assassinated John F. Kennedy. When McPherson also turns up dead, CJ Floyd steps in to sort out the details, in the process going on his own hunt for the presidential assassin. CJ's jouirney is a retrospective trek that has him fielding CIA plots, mafia dons, and Cuban conspirators. But it's not until he realizes that there were two attempts on Kennedy's life prior to his actual assassination in 1963 - one in Chicago and one in Tampa - that he's able to hone in on who might have really killed the president.
