Summary
  • A re-examination of the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., argues that convicted killer James Earl Ray did not act alone, offers a look at Ray's life, his encounters with the feds and the mob, and the crime itself
  • The plea bargain of James Earl Ray for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. has been the subject of intense inquiry and debate among historians and researchers. Was Ray--a small-town petty thief--really the criminal mastermind the prosecutors said he was? Or was he a pawn in a broader conspiracy that involved an entity much more powerful: the U.S. government? Evidence reveals Ray was inducted into the CIA as a young man in the U.S. Army and subjected to mind control experimentation. Later, in the two years prior to the King assassination, Ray was under the influence of several government-connected hypnotists. In this book, Ray's eldest brother and M.L. King historian Lyndon Barsten offer incontrovertible evidence that Ray could not have assassinated Dr. King. they offer a new look at Ray's life, his encounters with the Feds and the Mob, and the crime that shook the world.--From publisher description
