|Description||On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis, Tennessee. Although James Earl Ray was arrested and charged with the murder, his hearing -- conducted without cross-examination or challenge by the defense -- raised more questions than it answered. |
In Murder in Memphis (previously titled Code Name "Zorro"), authors Mark Lane and Dick Gregory examine these questions and 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 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 and interviews with FBI agents, King's security guards, eyewitnesses, and James Earl Ray himself -- Mark Lane and Dick Gregory present the case as it really was, so that the American public can decide for themselves.
