50+ years after the public execution of our President there are few offerings that are new, and yet this is. Its purpose is not to solve the case, but instead has been written to provide the reader with a window into a previously unseen side of those who witnessed what happened and who never wavered from the conviction that shots were fired from the Grassy Knoll.

Gayle Nix Jackson has provided the public with one more important piece of the big picture, and at the same time has honored her grandfather’s memory. If someone reads this book a hundred years from now, her words will bring Orville Nix and his experiences to life for them, too.
