On Nov. 21, 1963, just hours from Dallas, Texas, Rose Cherami was going through severe heroin withdrawal when she was admitted to a treatment facility. Once admitted, she proceeded to warn doctors, nurses, and fellow patients of President John F. Kennedy’s impending death. She claimed to have been traveling on a drug run from Miami with two “mean” guys, who were planning an at- tack on the president. An assassin killed President Kennedy the very next day. In Rose Cherami: Gathering Fallen Petals, Rose’s only son, Dr. Michael Marcades, pieces together the fragments of Rose’s troubled life— involving substance abuse, prostitution, and violence—to reveal startling truths about the events leading up to the assassination and what Rose may or may not have known. Based on true events, Gathering Fallen Petals is an incredible and historically accurate account of one woman’s struggle to overcome her demons and reveal what she knew about the crime of the 20th century.
