A hard-boiled adventure destined to be a classic. JFK has been framed for murder and it’s up to Jack Griffin to prove Senator Kennedy’s innocence.
“A thrilling crime drama”
“Crandell crafts not only a tantalizingly complex crime—one with conspiratorial proportions—but also deftly limns an atmosphere of gloomy transgression and a dark world of crime and subterfuge…A thrilling crime drama, suspenseful and thoughtful.”
“…a compelling tale highly recommended for a wider audience than the usual P.I. enthusiast alone. Between Let’s Say Jack Kennedy Killed the Girl’s catchy title and intriguing personalities, it should reach into novel and historical fiction reader circles alike, with vivid, unique brand of action and political and psychological interplays that make for a heck of a story.”

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
A Maryland State Arts Council Award-Winning Novel.
Author William F. Crandell’s long-awaited detective series comes to Hawkshaw Press with Let’s Say Jack Kennedy Killed the Girl (Book 1 in all-new Jack Griffin Detective Series)!
In this hard-boiled adventure we find a young senator Kennedy’s personal and political future at risk when he’s set up to take the fall for a ghastly murder. Working against time, bureaucratic red tape, his own personal demons, and individuals who want him out of the way, Griffin must identify the real killer, assuming he survives long enough.
Snappy dialogue, fast-paced storytelling, and roller coaster twist and turns make this a must-read for any fan of hard-boiled crime fiction, historical fiction, or JFK. Fans of Raymond Chandler will feel as if they’ve just discovered the late author’s successor, and that author’s name is William Crandell.
