Synopsis

Synopsis

A gripping and unforgettable true story of bravery and patriotism in the face of bitter hatred.

Abraham Bolden was a young African American Secret Service agent in Chicago when he was asked by John F. Kennedy himself to join the White House Secret Service detail. For Bolden, it was a dream come true–and an encouraging sign of the charismatic president’s vision for a new America.

But the dream quickly turned sour. Bolden found himself regularly subjected to open hostility and blatant racism, and he was appalled by the White House team’s irresponsible approach to security. In the wake of JFK’s assassination, Bolden sought to expose the agency’s negligence, only to find himself the victim of a sinister conspiracy. The Echo from Dealey Plaza is the story of the terrible price paid by one man for his commitment to truth and justice.

"If a novelist set out to rewrite Franz Kafka’s The Trial as a modern-day ­horror tale, it might read much like Abraham Bolden's The Echo from Dealey Plaza."
Chicago Sun-Times

“An astonishing tale of aborted justice.”
Kirkus

“Excellent.”
Library Journal

“Conspiracy theories haunt the Kennedy assassination; Bolden offers a new one, concerning discrimination and evidence suppression. . . . a world of duplicitous charges and disappearing documents fit for a movie thriller.”
Publishers Weekly

“Riveting.”
Ebony

“Balancing his temper and his dignity, [Bolden] persisted in a manner readers will relate to….”
