A riveting and powerful account of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr. was killed in Memphis, Tennessee, by a single assassin’s bullet. A career criminal named James Earl Ray was seen fleeing from a rooming house that overlooked the hotel balcony from where King was cut down. An international manhunt ended two months later with Ray’s capture. Though Ray initially pled guilty, he quickly recanted and for the rest of his life insisted he was an unwitting pawn in a grand conspiracy. In Killing the Dream, expert investigative reporter Gerald Posner reexamines Ray and the evidence, even tracking down the mystery man Ray claimed was the conspiracy’s mastermind. Beginning with an authoritative biography of Ray’s life, and continuing with a gripping account of the assassination and its aftermath, Posner cuts through phony witnesses, false claims, and a web of misinformation surrounding that tragic spring day in 1968. He puts Ray’s conspiracy theory to rest and ultimately manages to disclose what really happened the day King was murdered.

From the author of An Act of State comes a myth-shattering exposé that reveals the truth behind the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On April 4th, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stepped out onto the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, and into his killer’s line of fire. James Earl Ray stood accused in the murder that forever changed the course of American history. It has also set into motion a massive cover-up that has withstood a quarter-century of scrutiny. Now, after nearly two decades of investigation, William F. Pepper, Ray’s longtime attorney, exposes the truth of King’s death: his client was a patsy, and J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, the CIA, army intelligence, the mafia, and the Memphis, Tennessee, police force colluded in a conspiracy to eliminate the man they saw as a dangerous revolutionary. Interviewing scores of new witnesses who have remained silent for decades—including two member of the Special Forces squad who admit to being on sniper duty—Pepper offers tantalizing evidence that calls into question everything we thought we knew about King’s assassination. And Pepper names names, revealing the evil sedition behind the murder of our nation’s greatest civil rights leader.

William Pepper was James Earl Ray’s lawyer in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., and even after Ray’s conviction and death, Pepper continues to adamantly argue Ray’s innocence. This myth-shattering expose is a revised, updated, and heavily expanded volume of Pepper’s original best-selling and critically-acclaimed book of the same name, with twenty-six years of additional research included. The result reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for an evil conspiracy—a government-sanctioned assassination of our nation’s greatest leader. Orders to Kill will release in sync with a feature film adaptation of it that will be directed by Lee Daniels, have Hugh Jackman star as the author, and be produced by Millennium Films. The film will portray Pepper in trial and his proof of an assassination plot masterminded by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, the CIA, army intelligence, the mafia, and Memphis police. The plan, according to Pepper, was for a team of United States Army Special Forces snipers to kill King, but just as they were taking aim, a back-up civilian assassin pulled the trigger. In Orders to Kill, Pepper shares the evidence and testimonies that prove that Ray was a fall-guy chosen by those who viewed King as a dangerous revolutionary. His findings make the book one of the most important ones of our time—the uncensored story of the murder of an American hero and disturbing revelations about secret under-workings of the government and how it continues, even today, to obscure and obfuscate the truth. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

The assassination of the Civil Rights leader: lone gunman or a conspiracy? “Forget everything you think you know” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Martin Luther King Jr. was a powerful and eloquent champion of the poor and oppressed in the United States. At the height of his fame in the mid-sixties, he seemed to offer the real possibility of a new and radical beginning for liberal politics in America. However, in 1968, he was assassinated, halting the movement for social, racial, and economic change. The murder conviction of James Earl Ray never looked safe—especially to William F. Pepper, whose investigation into the case became a twenty-five year campaign for justice. In a 1999 civil trial supported by the King family, seventy witnesses testified to the conspiracy Pepper had unearthed. The jury concluded that Ray was not responsible for the assassination, and that government agents were involved in a wide-ranging conspiracy. An Act of State lays out the extraordinary facts of the King story—of the huge groundswell of radical optimism he inspired, of how plans for his execution were laid at the very heart of the US government and the military, of the disinformation and media cover-ups that followed every attempt to expose the truth. As shocking as it is tragic, An Act of State is the most authoritative account of how King’s challenge to the US establishment led inexorably to his murder.

Pulitzer Prize Finalist: “By far the most lucid and compelling account . . . of what probably did happen in Dallas—and what almost certainly did not.” —The New York Times Book Review The Kennedy assassination has reverberated for five decades, with tales of secret plots, multiple killers, and government cabals often overshadowing the event itself. As Gerald Posner writes, “Fifty years after the assassination, the biggest casualty has been the truth.” In this first-ever digital edition of his classic work, updated with a special comment for the fiftieth anniversary, Posner lays to rest all of the convoluted conspiracy theories—concerning the mafia, a second shooter, and the CIA—that have obscured over the decades what really happened in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Drawing from official sources and dozens of interviews, and filled with powerful historical detail, Case Closed is a vivid and straightforward account that stands as one of the most authoritative books on the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
