    Great reading towards investigative work on MLK's murder

    I could not keep the book down for a moment. The investigative research that has been detailed gives a clear insight on the follies and corruption of power in the FBI and the police that played havoc in bringing Dr. King down. The pace of the book is excellent and the events are in cronological order that kept the reader's interest alive. I certainly liked Mark Lane and Dick Gregory's style to make a climactic point at the end of a para.
