Résumé :

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was shot & killed in Memphis, Tennessee. Although James Earl Ray was arrested & charged with the murder, his hearing-conducted without cross-examination or challenge by defense-raised more questions than it answered. In Murder in Memphis (previously titled Code Name "Zorro"), authors Mark Lane & Dick Gregory examine these questions & more: Why was Dr. King's police protection removed on the day of the assassination-and by whom? Why was the same FBI squad, originally assigned to "destroy" King, then directed to investigate his murder? What did the ballistics tests reveal-or fail to reveal-about the alleged murder weapon? How has the most reliable witness been prevented, perhaps forever, from testifying in court? From an extraordinary assemblage of evidence-exclusive documents & interviews with former FBI agents, King's security guards, eyewitnesses, & James Ear Ray himself-Mark Lane & Dick Gregory present the case as it really was, so that the American public can decide for themselves. Mark Lane is the author of bestsellers Plausible Denial & Rush to Justice. Dick Gregory is a writer & activist who was a friend & co-worker of Dr. King during the 1960s.
