Surrounded by Enemies: A Breakpoint Novel
by Bryce Zabel
on Tour November 1-30, 2015
What if Kennedy survived Dallas?
President John F. Kennedy has lived through the ambush in Dealey Plaza. America holds its collective breath, seeing its president nearly executed in broad daylight. But as the country marches on, the office of the President finds itself under a much more insidious type of fire. Political scandal, an endless war, and a country coming apart at the seams take the 1960’s in a terrifying new direction, and both John and his attorney-general brother, Bobby, struggle to stay ahead of their enemies, political and otherwise, and steer America toward a greater future.
This savvy, fiercely intelligent novel, perfect for readers of Harry Turtledove, brings together elements of political thriller and page-turning history, enthralling readers with a sharply written take on the America that was, and the America that could have been.
"I have some experience with shattered timelines and altered realities but this one kept me guessing every page.”
~ Damon Lindelof, writer/producer of LOST, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
"Plausible development, building from what we know about what really did go on, and a whacking good story…SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES delivers on both, big-time. So hold on to your hats, folks. You’re in for quite a ride.”
~ Harry Turtledove, alternative history author, HOW FEW REMAIN

Wow! "Surrounded by Enemies" by author Bryce Zabel is a book that will have your mind racing from the very first page. I think anyone that was old enough to remember will never forget the day that President Kennedy was shot. That day will forever be something that we will always remember. This book asks the question of what would have been different if he had not really been killed? I believe that some of us ask this question more than once to ourselves and or others. I really loved the storyline, the ideas and the characters. I could not stop reading until I finished the book. I give this book a 5/5. I cannot wait until the next novel from this author. I was given this book by Partners in Crime Book Tours and all opinions are mine.
