Overview

On the Night of June 4, 1968, Sirhan Sirhan shot and killed Senator Robert F. Kennedy in a steamy pantry of the Los Angeles Ambassador Hotel. Kennedy and his entourage had been celebrating his victory in the California primary for the Democratic nomination for President. Everybody knew that Sirhan was the assassin. But was there a wider conspiracy? Did the FBI truly solve the crime? After working his way deep inside the investigation-and spending more than two hundred hours in direct conversation with Sirhan-Robert Blair Kaiser wrote the quintessential book on Robert Kennedy's murder. Now, forty years after the assassination, Kaiser has rewritten his analytic epic, probing anew into one of the most mystifying tragedies of our day.

Widely recognized as an important contribution to the literature of political assassinations and as primary document on the tragedy of R.F.K.'s death forty years ago, "R.F.K. Must Die!" is more than ever a stunning look into the mind of a killer and the substance of an assassination.

About the Author:
Robert Blair Kaiser is the author of ten books including Cardinal Mahony: A Novel, A Church in Search of Itself, and Clerical Error. In recent years, he has covered the Vatican for Newsweek, Newsday, and CBS
