ITEM#: 14358728The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir by Clint Hill that Kirkus Reviews called clear and honest prose free from salaciousness and gossip, Jackie Kennedys personal Secret Service agent details his very close relationship with the First Lady during the four years leading up to and following President John F. Kennedys tragic assassination.
In those four years, Hill was by Mrs. Kennedys side for some of the happiest moments as well as the darkest. He was there for the birth of John, Jr. on November 25, 1960, as well as for the birth and sudden death of Patrick Bouvier Kennedy on August 8, 1963. Three and a half months later, the unthinkable happened.
Forty-seven years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the one vivid image that never leaves Clint Hills mind is that of President Kennedys head lying on Mrs. Kennedys lap in the back seat of the limousine, his eyes fixed, blood splattered all over the back of the car, Mrs. Kennedy, and Hill as well. Sprawled on the trunk of the car as it sped away from Dealey Plaza, Hill clung to the sides of the car, his feet wedged in so his body was as high as possible.
Clint Hill jumped on the car too late to save the president, but all he knew after that first shot was that if more shots were coming, the bullets had to hit him instead of the First Lady.
Mrs. Kennedys strength, class, and dignity over those tragic four days in November 1963 held the country together.
This is the story, told for the first time, of the man who perhaps held her together.
