(AP) - "End of Days: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy" (William Morrow), by James Swanson

Questions remain and conspiracy theories abound 50 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Author James Swanson takes readers on a minute-by-minute account of that fateful day in Dallas in "End of Days."

Swanson sets forth the historical groundwork of Kennedy's life and his days in office leading up to his death on Nov. 22, 1963. He takes the historical record and turns the enormous cast and circumstances into an absorbing and fast-paced thriller.

There are many titles from which to choose on the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death, and "End of Days" is one of the best.

"If Kennedy Lived: The First and Second Terms of President John F. Kennedy: An Alternate History" (Putnam), by Jeff Greenfield

If rain had fallen on Nov. 22, 1963, a plastic bubble would have covered the top of the vehicle carrying President John F. Kennedy through the streets of Dallas. Author Jeff Greenfield uses this as a launching point to imagine what would have happened if Kennedy hadn't died on that fateful day in his fascinating book "If Kennedy Lived."

Due to his extensive research and interviews with experts in Kennedy's life, Greenfield brings authenticity to the book, and provides a fascinating spin on what might have been.
