Definitive accounts of JFK’s and Martin Luther King’s assassinations by a Pulitzer Prize finalist and New York Times–bestselling author.
Case Closed: A Pulitzer Prize finalist and New York Times bestseller, Case Closed is a vivid and straightforward account that stands as one of the most authoritative books on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Drawing from official sources and dozens of interviews, filled with powerful historical detail, and including an updated comment for the fiftieth anniversary, Posner’s “utterly convincing” book lays to rest all of the convoluted conspiracy theories—concerning the mafia, a second shooter, and the CIA—that have obscured what really happened in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963 (Chicago Tribune).
“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
Killing the Dream: On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King Jr., was killed in Memphis, Tennessee, by a single assassin’s bullet. James Earl Ray was seen fleeing from a rooming house that overlooked the hotel balcony where King was shot. 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 cuts through phony witnesses, false claims, and a web of misinformation to put Ray’s conspiracy theory to rest and disclose what really happened the day King was murdered.
“A superb book: a model of investigation, meticulous in its discovery and presentation of evidence, unbiased in its exploration of every claim. And it is a wonderfully readable book, as gripping as a first-class detective story.” —The New York Times
