9780393315349: The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity

"Carefully reasoned . . . dramatic. . . . [Moldeas] book should be read, not so much for the irrefutability of its conclusions as for the way the author has brought order out of a chaotic tale and turned an appalling tatter of history into an emblem of our misshapen times."―Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times

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.

About the Author:

Dan E. Moldea has specialized in organized-crime investigations since 1974. He has written numerous books and lives in Washington, D.C.

From Publishers Weekly:

The 1968 slaying of Kennedy in a Los Angeles hotel kitchen has never achieved anything like the legendary quality-or the bibliography-of his brother's assassination; there have always, however, been unbelievers in Sirhan Sirhan, still serving time for the killing, as the lone gunman he seemed to be. Moldea (probably best known in the book world as the author who unsuccessfully sued the New York Times over a review) is one of them, and has done an extremely painstaking investigative job of showing why. For one thing, Kennedy appeared to have been shot at point-blank range from behind, and witnesses saw Sirhan shoot from several feet in front. For another, his gun held only eight bullets, all apparently accounted for by the wounds in Kennedy and others-yet there was evidence that other bullet holes were found in the walls and doors of the kitchen. The Los Angeles Police Department hardly helped deflect suspicions by destroying some evidence and by being generally defensive. Moldea's account of all this, and of his many exclusive interviews and carefully pursued leads-he gave a polygraph test to a security guard who was also a possible suspect, and interviewed Sirhan in jail-is highly readable, often exciting. His concluding chapter-which we feel constrained not to reveal-though cogent and believable in itself, offers a distinct sense of letdown. Photos not seen by PW.
