This book is a great mystery book based on the Kennedy assassination. The characters are well developed and easy to understand. This book takes you on twists and turns that you won't believe.

I recommend this book to anyone that wants to go into theory on the Kennedy assassination and likes American history.
Below I will post questions and answers taken from the author and a video of the author explaining the book.
What inspired you to write a novel around the assassination of President John F. Kennedy?
I have always been fascinated by the assassination, which, obviously, was one of the most pivotal and enigmatic events in American history. And when I heard about the ‘Babushka Lady’ one of the few people in Dealey Plaza that day who remains unidentified and the possibility that she may have filmed the shooting, an idea came to mind that seemed too good to disregard.
What have you learned about the real Babushka Lady?
She was wearing an overcoat, glasses, and a head scarf (i.e., a babushka), and was standing about thirty feet from the limousine when the president took the fatal shot. Most assassination experts believe she was also holding a camera very possibly a film camera. If so, and if she had a reasonably steady hand, then she probably took the best moving images of the assassination; even better than the famed Zapruder film. Plus, she was standing opposite Zapruder, which afforded her a unique angle. And yet, we don’t know her name, and her film has never surfaced. And here’s the most important part about her in relation to Frame 232 she was a real person. I didn’t invent her to serve the story. If you do a Google search, you’ll find her.
What is the significance of the title?
Simple, once the Babushka film is analyzed, the key moment that helps our heroes move forward with their investigation occurs on frame 232.
