    While I am glad I read the book, it must be stated that the book s focus is quite narrow It gives only Clint Hill s personal perspective on his four years as Secret Service agent protecting Jacqueline Kennedy The last year is after the death of her husband President Johnson deemed the surveillance should be continued for another year You follow what Clint Hill did to protect the First Lady, and how he came to feel towards her, the President and their two children, Caroline and little John S ...

    There is a sadness that permeates this book For as hard as Clint Hill worked to protect The First Family and he makes it clear from the outset that he would have preferred to be on JFK s detail, not Jackie s , the Secret Service failed at the moment that mattered most The President was shot on their watch There s no escaping that Whether or not Clint Hill could have made a difference is debatable I don t think he could have moved any faster , but the fact that JFK was murdered is not And There is a sadness that permeates this book For as hard as Clint Hill worked to protect The First Family and he makes it clear from the outset that he woul...

    Being fascinated by Jacqueline Kennedy for years, originally I didn t want to read this thinking that it was just another way for a former staffer to make a buck off of the Kennedy name But then a friend told me that she had seen Clint Hill on the Today Showand suddenly all my reluctance about reading this book changedand quickly For me, Clint Hill has always been a demi god or sort of like an icon I ve always wondered what his thoughts were He is the one that jumped on the back of t Being fascinated by Jacqueline Kennedy for years, originally I didn t want to read this thinking that it was just another way for a former staffer to make a buck off of the Kennedy name But then a friend told me that she had seen Clint Hill on the Today Showand suddenly all my reluctance about reading this book changedand quickly For me, Clint Hill has always been a demi god or sort of like an icon I ve always wondered what his thoughts were He is the one that jumped on the back of the limo in Dallas after the first shot was fired, pushing Mrs Kennedy back into the car as they sped to Parkland Hospital While Hill has been reticent to speak about the events of November 22, 1963 he does here and the result is one of the most moving accounts of the tragedy that I have ever read and trust me, I ve read EVERYTHING Showing Jacqueline Kennedy s human side in this book, we are led beneath the glamorous, fashionable world of State Dinner...
