This huge book exposes and spoofs the biggest historic-forensic hoax ever perpetrated. Fabricating that Sheriff Pat Garrett had not shot Billy the Kid, but had killed an innocent victim for his grave, the hoaxers went on an exhumation rampage.
The hoaxers were a seated governor, his major political donor, sheriffs and deputies, a university professor, a U.S. Marshals Service employee, and a nationally known forensic expert - all ignoring actual historians.
The hoaxers were after publicity. The governor thought it would help his 2008 presidential bid; and his donor got the hijacked history as weird pay-to-play.
The author was the hoaxers' nightmare: an M.D. forensic consult, and a Billy the Kid expert willing to fight.
The book has the hoaxbusting story, as well as hoax documents and a bibliography of investigative sources.
