Dallas, 22. November 1963 – 12:30 Uhr: Lee Harvey Oswald späht durch das Zielfernrohr seines Gewehrs. John F. Kennedys Kopf erscheint kaum einen Meter entfernt. Oswald weiß, dass er kaum Zeit haben wird. Zwei Schüsse wird er sicher abgeben können – drei, wenn er wirklich schnell ist. Sein Ziel klar vor Augen, atmet er aus und drückt den Abzug. Der erste Schuss trifft den Präsidenten im Nacken. Kennedy sackt leicht zusammen, sein Rückenkorsett, das er wegen seiner Kriegsverletzung dauernd tragen muss, hält ihn aber aufrecht. Beunruhigt wendet Jackie sich ihrem Mann zu. Sie greift nach seiner Schulter und schaut ihm ins Gesicht, um zu sehen, was los ist. Kaum fünf Sekunden sind seit dem ersten Schuss vergangen, da schlägt die zweite Kugel in Kennedys Hinterkopf ein und reißt eine klaffende Wunde. Reflexartig fährt seine Hand hoch zur Stirn, doch ein großer Teil der Schädeldecke ist weggeschleudert worden.

From the team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, bestselling authors of the blockbuster Killing series, now comes Killing Reagan. This page-turning epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan tells the vivid story of his rise to power -- and the forces of evil that conspired to bring him down. Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable -- or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world? Told in the same riveting fashion as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus and Killing Patton, Killing Reagan reaches back to the golden days of Hollywood, where Reagan found both fame and heartbreak, up through the years in California governor's mansion, and finally to the White House, where he presided over boom years and the fall of the Iron Curtain. But it was John Hinckley Jr.'s attack on him that precipitated President Reagan's most heroic actions. In Killing Reagan, O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the scenes, creating an unforgettable portrait of a great man operating in violent times.

The powerful and riveting new book in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes readers to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency, only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender, despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same page-turning style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before.

A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the iconic anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath. In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Allen Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

Wer ist der mysteriöse islamische Messias, bekannt als Mahdi? Was haben die Bibel und der Koran über die Endzeit zu sagen? Könnte Mohammed eher von dunklen Mächten inspiriert worden sein als vom Engel Gabriel? Die Bibel sagt voraus, in den letzten Tagen wird ein charismatischer Führer auftreten, um im Namen des Friedens eine globale Anhängerschaft aufzurichten. Auch der Islam erwartet einen Mann, der sich erheben wird, um die Nationen anzuführen, und dabei eine Ära des Friedens verspricht. Joel Richardsons faszinierende Einblicke und Analysen legen nahe, dass es sich bei dem islamischen Mahdi und dem Antichristen aus der Bibel um ein und dieselbe Person handelt. Es scheint, als käme der falsche Christus eher aus dem Herzen des Nahen Ostens hervor – als aus Europa, wie oftmals angenommen wurde.
