"The Thunderbird Conspiracy" - Was Robert Kaye involved?

Updated on September 13, 2014

Book Cover Art

Published as we approach the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John Kennedy, this book was written, at this time, to raise another fascinating set of questions about a part of a possible conspiracy. Author R. K. Price uses his preface and an epilogue to go into great detail to describe how his uncle told him this basic story - he says he uses the facts he was told. He adds a fictional narrative to spin an intriguing story that is just plausible enough to make you want to read the whole story.

Robert Kaye is an alias for a Hungarian Freedom-Fighter immigrant (alleged - is that the word?) who became a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald. Along the way, this Robert Kaye arrives in the Denver area and gets work as a mechanic for Price's uncle, Bud Carlson. This relationship draws Carlson into conspiracy only as a "friend of" but he in none the less hassled by government investigators for many years - so the story goes. How can this be? I think you'll enjoy reading the story to learn how this happens.

The classic black Thunderbird plays a key role late in the story as Kennedy's trip to Dallas approaches, and beyond. It was the ideal car to Bud Carlson, but it is Robert Kaye who is driving it on that fateful day. Kaye was trained to be Oswald's driver as the story progresses. But, on that special day, nothing goes as planned - I guess we all know about some of this. We know what happened to Oswald, but do we know who Ruby was and what happened to him?

What became of the Thunderbird, and Robert Kaye who was driving it. These are some of the fun reasons to read this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did... once I got about 40% into it on my Kindle! ;-)

      We moved to Dallas in the early 1970's, within a decade of when Kennedy was shot, and I have gone to the 6th Floor Museum in the Book Depository building many times. I have also walked on the "grassy knoll." I am convinced that there were people (possibly a couple of disgruntled CIA agents) who conspired to get Oswald worked up and who encouraged him to shoot at Kennedy. I think they were also there that day, and took a shot themselves from the grassy knoll.
