Overview

Back in print with its original title, Harold Weisberg’s detailed and devastating analysis of the Martin Luther King assassination is as timely as ever. Originally published in 1970, this book examines the circumstances of the murder, accused assassin James Earl Ray’s flight and capture, and the failures of the justice system in this case.

While many books about the King assassination have followed Frame-Up, this work remains unrivaled in its retelling of the circumstances which led Ray to plead guilty in a grossly inadequate “mini trial,” and Ray’s almost immediate failed attempt to retract this confession.

Weisberg also dissects the evidence in the case, and concludes that while Ray was a part of the conspiracy, he did not shoot Dr. King, serving as another “patsy” in the troubling assassinations of the 1960s.

Editorial Reviews

Saturday Review
“Weisberg is an indefatigable researcher . . . when all has been said, Weisberg remains invaluable. He has pursued the facts . . . And they are facts that lay claim to the conscience of America.”
Chicago Sun-Times
“Weisberg has dug up much material, some of it properly designated as suppressed, that must give any reasonable and unprejudiced person pause.”
