It is hard to believe it has been fifty years, and yet, as a 9-year-old, I remember seeing it as it unfolded on a black and white television.

I won a copy of this book during a Goodreads giveaway. I am under no obligation to leave a review or rating and do so voluntarily. I am paying it forward by passing this book along to a family member who I think will enjoy it too.

A tremendous book, less an examination of the evidence than about the history of the prosecution of the accused assassin, Sirhan Sirhan. Although it argues that others were involved in Robert Kennedy's murder, it is neither hagiography nor conspiratorial screed. It professionally argues the evidence that Sirhan may have been a "Manchurian Candidate". Highly recommended.

I am not a big believer in “conspiracy theories “ but I found this book to be fascinating. It certainly seems well-researched and it is definitely well-written. It gives one food for thought that this case was not as cut-and-dried as is commonly presented. A definite recommend.
My thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for my honest review.

Well documented information on the existence of others who probably shot Robert F. Kennedy. A coup against the electoral process.

Thanks to the internet and years of television shows and media coverage about the murder of Robert Kennedy, I thought I had an idea as to who killed him. This book made me question what I thought! This is definitely a book for anyone that loves conspiracy theories and American history. I strongly recommend it!
