About

though the book is not from an Indian writer, there is a fair point to include the fiction work from Stephen King. A time traveller tries to prevent the Kennedy assassination. The writer himself frames the book for horror, science fiction and alternate history lovers.

While grading experiments by his GED students, Jake reads a grisly, enthralling piece written by janitor Harry Dunning: fifty decades back, Harry finally survived his dad's sledgehammer slaughter of his whole family. Jake is dismissed. . .but a much more eccentric secret comes to light when Jake's buddy Al, owner of the local diner, enlists Jake to take over the assignment which has turned his obsession--to protect against the Kennedy assassination. How? By stepping through a portal site from the diner's storeroom, and to the age of Ike and Elvis, of large American cars, sock hops, and cigarette smoke... Finding himself at warmhearted Jodie, Texas, Jake starts a new lifestyle. But all ends at the street result in some troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald. The course of history is going to be rewritten. . .and turned into heart-stoppingly suspenseful.
