Summary
"This fast-paced history traces the escalating racial violence that led to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and then documents how Klan lawyer Arthur J. Hanes and checkbook journalist William Bradford Huie aided the evolution of James Earl Ray's bogus alibi"--Provided by publisher
Summary
James Earl Ray, an escaped convict from Missouri, was punished for the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. despite the fact that he did not fit the caricature of a hangdog racist thirsty for blood. Klandestine documents the evolution of Ray’s alibi from 1968 to 1999—the year Dr. King’s own family declared him an innocent man—yet argues that he was indeed motivated by racial hatred and did in fact pull the trigger. It closes the book on the conspiracy that Ray and his defense team created, which asserted that Raoul, a mysterious seaman with deep connections to the criminal grapevine, framed Ray as part of a complicated New Orleans–based conspiracy
