America. 1960. John F. Kennedy has just been elected as President. But the Cold War is close to boiling point, the arms race is at an all-time high and the Soviet Union has beaten America into space. Anti-Communist fever is rampant and paranoia about Castro's Cuba is running high. The Mafia halso have a problem with Castro - and they have no scruples about hiring Tom Jefferson, America's best assassin, to kill him. But Jefferson has his own agenda, his own target, much closer to home.

The Communnist, the politician, the hit man -- The Shot is a brilliant pseudo-historical what-if ride through the cultural, poitical and social landscape of the 1960's.
