On June 5, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was shot in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles; his death the following day stunned a nation still recovering from John F. Kennedys assassination five years earlier. Officials insisted, however, that this was not "another Dallas": this was an open-and-shut case--Sirhan Sirhan acted alone. Yet behind the official version of the RFK assassination lies a story of shadows, controversies, conflicting testimony, and missing evidence. Investigative journalist Dan E. Moldea set out to discover the truth; what he found suggested a botched investigation, and perhaps something worse. Was there strong evidence, as certain police officers and the FBI alleged, that too many bullets were fired to have come from Sirhans gun? Could the LAPD have suppressed vital evidence in their rush to judgment? Could Sirhan have had an accomplice? In a fascinating book full of plot twists and intrigue, Moldea turns the case inside out, tracking down witnesses and police officers (many of whom had never before been interviewed), scrutinizing testimony and official files, questioning Sirhan in jail, and polygraphing security guard Thane Eugene Cesar, accused by many of being the real gunman. New evidence mounts and theories fly until Moldea reveals what he believes happened that fateful night. Exhaustively researched, brilliantly analyzed, this book definitively slams the door shut on the mystery of the Robert Kennedy assassination.… (més)

Definitive and unequivocal in it's conclusion. Durham did it and he did it alone. If you have any doubts, read this edition which has some very cool updates and additions that I found extremely intere
sting and insightful. ( )

The book of The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy is moving to those like myself who love Presidential information and facts. I had know much about the assassination of John F. Kennedy (it had always interested me), but knew little about his brother Robert. It turned out that Robert F. Kennedy and his brother John (the slain President of the United States) were not just brothers, they were also close friends. Robert Kennedy managed his brother's successful campaign for the Presidency of the United States, and also was a close part of JFK's presidency, being in his cabinet. When his brother was struck down by an assassin's bullet in a visit to Texas Robert was devastated, after reading I almost think that he might have been slightly depressed. John and Robert thought very similar on many issues, and was almost a younger version of his brother. After much though, he decides to run for President. After reading this book I concluded that I would have hands down voted for RFK during his bid for the Oval Office. My favorite part of the book describes the tension between RFK and his opponent as they came to the California Democratic Primary. It was in Los Angeles that Robert F. Kennedy was shot after winning the primary. This book shows great detail and is easily understood, I would recommend it to anyone who love Presidential history, like myself. (335 Pages) ( )
