The #1 New York Times bestselling memoir by Clint Hill that Kirkus Reviews called “clear and honest prose free from salaciousness and gossip,” Jackie Kennedy’s personal Secret Service agent details his very close relationship with the First Lady during the four years leading up to and following President John F. Kennedy’s tragic assassination. In those four years, Hill was by Mrs. Kennedy’s side for some of the happiest moments as well as the darkest. He was there for the birth of John, Jr. on November 25, 1960, as well as for the birth and sudden death of Patrick Bouvier Kennedy on August 8, 1963. Three and a half months later, the unthinkable happened. Forty-seven years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the one vivid image that never leaves Clint Hill’s mind is that of President Kennedy’s head lying on Mrs. Kennedy’s lap in the back seat of the limousine, his eyes fixed, blood splattered all over the back of the car, Mrs. Kennedy, and Hill as well. Sprawled on the trunk of the car as it sped away from Dealey Plaza, Hill clung to the sides of the car, his feet wedged in so his body was as high as possible. Clint Hill jumped on the car too late to save the president, but all he knew after that first shot was that if more shots were coming, the bullets had to hit him instead of the First Lady. Mrs. Kennedy’s strength, class, and dignity over those tragic four days in November 1963 held the country together. This is the story, told for the first time, of the man who perhaps held her together. This book is the memoir of Clint Hill, the Secret Service agent assigned to Jacqueline Kennedy during the Kennedy administration. He’s never told about his experiences publicly until this book—and it was well worth the wait. This is a beautifully written book and a wonderful tribute to Jacqueline Kennedy. It’s not surprising that Kennedy seemed to prefer Hill over the other agents assigned to her. His earnestness and kindness towards her is evident throughout the book. He was insistent on giving her as much privacy and personal space as possible, something it was obvious she cherished having been abruptly thrown into the international spotlight. What’s remarkable about this book is that among all the other tell-all type memoirs that have been written about the Kennedys, this one feels more personal and more intimate than any other, but does the family no injustice. There’s been a million articles and books written describing the Kennedy assassination, but no account can compare to Hill’s. And yet, it’s clear he did not want to exploit this event for his own personal gain or to provide lurid details for a curious public. He admits that the events of that day haunted him through his entire life and his descriptions of interactions alongside Mrs. Kennedy throughout the day and the following weeks makes for a truly heartbreaking account. (If you’ve ever wondered who the agent was that jumped onto the back of the Presidential convertible after the shots were fired, that was Hill.) Readers found this book so refreshing and honest. It’s not sensational, it’s not exploitative—it’s just straightforward and honest and actually quite beautiful.
