Just as perplexing as the assassination of John F. Kennedy is the assassin himself. With The Interloper, Peter Savodnik reveals Lee Harvey Oswald in an engrossing portrait of one of history’s most infamous killers.

Because Oswald briefly defected to the Soviet Union, some allege he was a Soviet agent. But as Savodnik shows, Oswald’s time in the U.S.S.R. reveals a more chilling story. Struggling for a sense of belonging in postwar America, Oswald viewed communism as a promising alternative—but after spending three years in Russia, he returned to America feeling utterly defeated, and began to look for an outlet for his rage.

Savodnik brilliantly evokes the shattered psyche of both Oswald and the era he so tragically defined.
