Publisher's Summary

The year was 1981. Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan was shot after leaving a speaking engagement in Washington, DC. The quick action of the Secret Service and medical professionals saved the president's life. Mere days after his near-death experience, Reagan's personal strength propelled him back into his presidential duties.

Adapted from Bill O'Reilly's historical thriller Killing Reagan, with characteristically gripping storytelling, this story explores the events of the day Reagan was shot. From the scene of the shooting and the dramatic action of the Secret Service to the FBI's interrogation of the shooter, the life-saving measures of the medical professionals, and the president's extraordinary recovery, this is a pause-resisting account of an attempted assassination and its aftermath.

The introduction to this audiobook is read by Bill O'Reilly.

Rawhide Is Down!

Probably the most famous assassination attempt in history. President Ronald Reagan literally survived a bullet to the heart!

I remember most of it.

It was a day no one could, believe and brought us together rather than what is going on in the world today.

Great quick read.

I like this book. Of course the full book killing Reagan was much better as it had so many more details. Does contain a small part at the end that was not in the original book.
