Review: "Fateful Night"

"Imaginative," "intriguing," and "thought provoking" are just three of the terms I would use to describe the masterpiece that is Fateful Night, book one in the What She Knew trilogy, by K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns. I have never read a story quite like this and I recommend it to all readers who love a good mystery, historical fiction, and the idea of "what if?"

The premise of the story comes from a simple question: What if Marilyn Monroe had lived and President John F. Kennedy had not been shot? By exploring this question, Hughes and Burns weave an intricate and breathtaking story based on possibilities. What if Marilyn Monroe really did know something, and what if that something was the key to preventing the historic assassination?

Story telling and great imagination come together in this book to create a completely believable story, cast by historic figures we all know and love. At least, we think we know and love them until we read what could have happened. Did we really know Frank Sinatra, the Kennedy's, and those in their inner circles? Maybe we did, maybe we didn't. What I do know is that the story presented in Fateful Night had me so convinced that it took me a while to remember that the events didn't actually happen, that I couldn't hate a beloved, crooning musician for things that only might have happened.

I quickly and easily give this story a huge 5-stars for the quality of the story and characterization, and for how well it was put together. I was constantly wondering what was going to happen next, eagerly turning electronic page after page. This wouldn't be a fully honest review if I didn't warn the reader that this book contains a few spots with adult content, so keep that in mind. If that is something you are comfortable with, by all means get yourself a copy of this book! It certainly does not disappoint.
