Overview

For the past 30 years, Sirhan Sirhan has been locked up in a jail cell for the murder of Bobby Kennedy -- a crime which was immediately labeled an open-and-shut case. The police and the courts concluded that Sirhan had undoubtedly killed Kennedy and he had acted alone. But after an exhaustive six-year examination of the crime, investigative journalist William Klaber and political science professor Philip Melanson come to a startling conclusion: Sirhan's case may have been grossly mishandled by the criminal justice system.

Based on their access to long-secret LAPD and FBI files, as well as interviews with witnesses and with Sirhan himself, the authors reveal startling new information about the case.

Editorial Reviews

CNN Sunday Morning
Shadow Play makes it clear that there are all dinds of anomalies in this crime that have never been fully explained.
Time
To Klaber, suspicions about the Sirhan verdict are based on fact, not fancy, and others who have followed the case and its aftermath concur.
