"Epic in scope, this is a gripping journey into the dark heart of American history."

Set mainly in Havana, Mexico City and Miami in 1960, The Shot takes us on a tour of a tough, dirty world in which politicians, mobsters, cops and spies collude, and everyone — not least the soon-to-be sworn in president John F Kennedy — is chasing power and sex. At the centre of it all is the enigmatic, amoral and ironically named assassin Tom Jefferson. Epic in scope, this is a gripping journey into the dark heart of American history.
