"Jack 1939 is a marvel—a brilliantly conceived, riveting tightrope race across Europe in the predawn of World War II."
   —Stephen White

Charming. Reckless. Brilliant. Deadly.

In Washington, D.C., President Franklin Roosevelt may run for an unprecedented third term and needs someone he can trust to find out what the Nazis are up to.

When John F. Kennedy decides to travel through Europe to gather research for his Harvard senior thesis, Roosevelt takes the opportunity to use him as his personal spy. The president's goal: to stop the flow of German money that has been flooding the United States to buy the 1940 election—an election that Adolf Hitler intends Roosevelt lose.
