Just in time for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death!
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.
Now nearing 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.
About R.K. Price:
R.K. Price is a Colorado native. He lived in Pueblo for a number of years, earning his way through college as a radio/television and newspaper reporter. He moved north to Denver in the mid 70s, joining a major advertising/public relations firm as a writer, producer and press agent. Later, he formed his own media relations and political consulting firm. He spent the early 1980s in Washington D.C. actively involved in national politics, and returned to Denver in the mid 80s to become an investment and mortgage banker — a profession he remains in today.

My Review: 
I have been told stories from my dad about JFK and his assassination. My parents have not forgotten where they were when they heard what had happened. Mr Price does a brilliant job of relating what the times were like then. As I read I thought about how my parents lived back then and how truly different times really were. My dad was a history buff, and would have loved to see this book as a documentary on television. This book was based on actual events. I felt like I was transferred back in time. The author did so much research for this book. There are actual case files and agent reports. By the end of the book I felt as though I learned enough to go on Jeopardy. I was not sure what to believe. Mr Price outdid himself and told us what parts he made up. I really enjoyed this book, and I can not wait to read more books from the author. I also liked that the author had knowledge that was in the book because it was told to him. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

The book is available for giveaway in Print & ebook.  Print copy is restricted to the U.S. only.  U.S. winners can choose either print or ebook.  ebook is available for international winners.
