Author Biography

Legendary horror writer John Russo is best known for his authorship of Night of the Living Dead and twenty other terror-suspense novels, including Midnight, The Awakening and The Majorettes, all of which were made into movies.

Russo’s latest novel, Dealey Plaza, is as real and frightening as today’s headlines, exploring -- and deploring -- America’s catastrophic addiction to guns and violence.

Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite

Dealey Plaza by John Russo is a suspense novel that leaves you on the edge of your chair with every chapter you read. Conspiracy buffs go to Dealey Plaza to stage a recreation of President Kennedy’s assassination, but four of them end up murdered - they are just the first victims in a legacy that spans over 40 years. When the survivors are to be honoured or killed, the question then becomes will anyone get out alive? Or do they all die in the end?

In a genre that has been taken over by Zombies and Vampires all too often these days, John Russo has proven that you don’t need paranormal to bring honest horror and crime in a thrilling way. This book takes the thrilling historical facts around the Kennedy assassination and weaves a story that sucks you in and keeps you guessing. I was scared and intrigued for most of the time I was reading this book and honestly it didn’t take me long because I could not set it down. I find it utterly satisfying when a novel can bring me into its world and wrap me up in the story so that I forget I really should be sleeping until the very last page. John Russo did that with Dealey Plaza. The book is well crafted with a flow that leads you through each piece of the story effortlessly. I would recommend that everyone put this on their 'must-read for the summer' list because it is a winner.
