What makes for a more thrilling, suspenseful story than one of the greatest conspiracies to ever be whispered among men, the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Jack Duffy’s The Man From 2063 takes on the facts and legends of one of the most tragic events in modern history and combines it with a futuristic twist to write a compelling and thought provoking narrative.
Sean Zumwalt, a native Texan, lawyer, and JFK collector and enthusiast, had always questioned the lone gun man theory behind the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Was this really carried out by one man? Why were there facts that just did not seem to add up? Was information withheld from the public? Was it the Russians, the Cubans, the CIA? He also always wondered “what if” that event had never even happened in the first place. Would the Vietnam War have happened where so many young lives were lost? How would the political and social aspects of our world be different if this young president had lived to fulfill his greater destiny?
Given the opportunity to go back and change the events of that day, Zumwalt would willingly risk his life to forever change the course of history. With the ever-changing technology of the modern world in which he lives in, Zumwalt is presented with that exact opportunity when finding out about a new, secretive invention of a time machine, thus joining the past and the future.
After a century of keeping a secret hidden, there are those that want to stop Zumwalt in his tracks and take him out while on his journey, making sure he never even existed and had the opportunity to travel back in time. Not only does our hero deal with these enemies, but Zumwalt also makes enemies when trying to stop the conspirators from even carrying off the event to begin with. Armed with documentation from the future and perseverance that only a true believer can have, Zumwalt takes on this mission to change that fateful day in Dallas, TX.
The novel raises serious questions not only about what happened to JFK but also the potential effects of time travel. Can changing one single event in the past bring about a totally unrecognizable present and future?
“The Man from 2063” has some intriguing “what if” questions in Duffy’s conspiracy theory. The result is a thoroughly satisfying novel of action and deduction that leads to a startling conclusion. This is a thought provoking novel and a very exciting adventure. A thriller and a theory – well worth reading and you won’t want to put it down once you embark on this journey.
