The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy: Crime, Conspiracy and Cover-Up - A New Investigation

At 12.16am on Wednesday, June 5, 1968, Senator Robert F. Kennedy was shot and mortally wounded in the kitchen service pantry of the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles. He had just won the California Primary, an important victory in his quest for nomination as the Democratic Party’s candidate in the US Presidential election late that year. A little over 24 hours later, he was pronounced dead. 

A 24-year-old Palestinian immigrant, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, was captured in the pantry with a smoking gun in his hand. Eyewitnesses had seen him step out in front of Kennedy and begin shooting with a small calibre revolver. He fired all eight bullets in its chamber. In April 1969, Sirhan was convicted of Robert Kennedy’s murder and the wounding of five others. He was sentenced to death, later commuted to life imprisonment. He has been in prison – often in solitary confinement – ever since. Fifteen applications for parole have been rejected. 

That is the official history of the murder of Robert F. Kennedy. Now, on the 50th anniversary of the assassination, award-winning investigative journalists Tim Tate and Brad Johnson uncover the true story. 

This book is the result of more than 25 years’ painstaking forensic work. The authors have scrutinised more than 100,000 official documents, located previously unknown recordings, and conducted original new interviews with key figures in the case. 

They show that Sirhan could not have fired the fatal bullets, reveal detailed evidence of a murderous conspiracy involving organised crime, and disclose CIA documents detailing successful experiments to create a hypno-programmed political assassin. The book also unmasks the likely identity of one of the most enduring mysteries in the case – the infamous ‘Girl in the Polka Dot Dress’. 
My thoughts
rating 5 stars
I never pick up books like this one even though i love non fiction , but for some reason I decided to give it a try , especially when the publisher asked me if i was interested in review it , i sent them a message back saying thanks and i had already requested it from Netgalley  which I had was sure when i get to it but I was going to give it a try. And I'm glad I did , its more then what I thought it was going to be , its more then just about the Kennedy family , its about a case that everyone that worked it seemed to want to try and hide facts or information from the public . Its about a case that some just wanted closed . While I don't know a hole lot about the case some of the information I do know because of what's been told on crime Tv shows i like to watch and that's that's been made available at various points in time over the last 50 years, but thanks to the hard work of the authors they bring to life and out in the open new information and  new revelations, and some that were just not easy to find unless you had the inclination to dig deep into the LAPD files that were released in 1988 and the court proceedings since Sirhan was convicted.So if you want to know what I'm taking about then you must read the book. With that said I want to think Netgalley as well as they publishers for think of me and letting me read and review this book in change for my honest opinion.
