REVIEW: Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #2
Book Title: Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #2
Book Description: Frank’s team has found their person of interest. But there’s a catch. In addition to finding a Lee Harvey Oswald look alike, they have to shoot this individual. Additionally the shot has to be in a specific location on this person’s body.
Some of the people on the team are squeamish about the idea of kidnapping and shooting someone. Frank asks them all if they’d be more comfortable having $10,000 in spending money for when they begin life on the tropical island they’re moving to when the job is done. Suddenly everyone’s scruples are much less rigid.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. The second installment of Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body was hard to fall into. I’m chalking up to being akin to the second twenty minutes of a Quentin Tarantino movie. It may be something of a head scratcher right now; but it’ll make sense as we go along.
The cover artwork went with the same concept as the first issue. I’m of the opinion that it works better using a grave than using a building for a backdrop. I still like how it’s primarily black and white with a touch of color for the characters that have been depicted. The interior artwork is solid. It continues to mesh well with the story.
As a geek on a budget I’m staying with this series. It has intrigue and shines a light on one of the biggest questions in American history over the last 70 years. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story takes us from here.
