About the Author


Guy Cote spent his formative years in Sanford, Maine pretending to be an adventurer and marching up and down Main Street waving an American flag while wearing an army uniform (his youthful response to the Iranian Hostage Crisis).  As his body grew and his maturity followed, Guy played sports and emulated fictional characters he saw on the silver screen.  He eventually tired of living vicariously through other people’s creations, so he began writing his own screenplays.  He completed his first script, The Magic of a Lifetime, shortly before graduating from The University of Maine.

With a script and a freshly minted Bachelors Degree in hand, Guy moved to Florida to work in the Sunshine State’s burgeoning film industry.  In the process, he wrote five more screenplays: Tried and True (currently in pre-production to become a feature film), G.I. Joe: The Making of a Hero, The Paper Trail, Soulmate and The Widowmaker

Guy’s fascination with other times and other places eventually drew him back into academia where he earned his Masters Degree in history from The University of South Florida.  Thereafter, he took a teaching position in a public school and dedicated himself to the creation of his first novel.  Long Live the King is the culmination of that effort.  It is Guy’s hope and belief that you’ll enjoy reading this novel as much as he enjoyed crafting it and he looks forward to the two of you meeting again in the sequel. 

Like most authors, Guy relishes feedback from his readers.  Feel free to visit and leave him a message at  See you there…

In the early morning hours of June 5, 1968, The Girl in the Polka-Dot Dress ran down a fire escape, exclaiming, “We shot him! We shot him!”

“Who?” asked a witness.

“We’ve shot Senator Kennedy.”


2018 – Fifty Years Later. Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Frank Caron is enjoying a high point in his career and the excitement of his new relationship with Sasha Frye. An amateur hypnotist, Sasha convinces him to let her treat his mother’s dementia with hypnotherapy. It’s supposed to do wonders for dementia sufferers, but it backfires. Horribly.

Under hypnosis, his mother makes a most unusual comment. “I don’t like this dress,” she says. “But I have to wear it for him to die. And Robert Kennedy must die.”

Frank is stunned. So is Sasha. What are they supposed to make of a comment like that? Can their new relationship handle the burden of learning such a shocking revelation?

One thing is for certain: neither can ignore it. What they do separately ignites the fire of ambition in Frank’s over-zealous boss, the District Attorney. It upends the California legal system. And it reawakens an evil that didn’t stop then – and won’t stop now – to keep its secrets hidden.

Through it all, there’s one burning question Frank must have answered: was his mother a conspirator in the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy?

What he learns is far more than a simple yes or no.
