Abstract:

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.
