Abstract:

After thirty years, Killing the Dream reexamines the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., based on new interviews, confidential files, and previously undisclosed evidence. Killing the Dream not only uncovers the errors of previous investigations - both private and governmental - but resolves the speculation about whether the FBI, CIA, or mafia was involved in the death of Dr. King. Killing the Dream untangles the case's leading puzzles. Was there a mysterious person called Raoul who directed James Earl Ray in the year leading up to the murder? Was the fatal shot fired from the bathroom window of a Memphis flophouse, or from a sniper's perch hidden in a densely overgrown garden across from King's motel? Did the military have a covert team of snipers in Memphis on the day King was killed? Has the recent confession by a restaurant owner exposed a wide conspiracy leading to a New Orleans crime family? And was James Earl Ray a patsy, as the King family recently declared?
