Review:

     "Carefully reasoned . . . ultimately persuasive . . . dramatic. . . . The author meticulously dissects how the various disputes arose and how critics were drawn into the orbit of the case. . . . The cleverness of [Moldea's] strategy in the book lies in his playing so effectively the part of devil's advocate. . . . His book should be read, not so much for the irrefutability of its conclusions as for the way the author has brought order out of a chaotic tale and turned an appalling tatter of history into an emblem of our misshapen times.--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times
 
     "Moldea's book is a must read for all those concerned about the troublesome questions raised about the official version of the assassination of RFK.  His startling conclusions are all the more persuasive because of the tenacity and integrity he brought to his long quest for the truth." --Professor G. Robert Blakey, former chief counsel, U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations
 
     "Beyond its boldness and intelligence, The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy, after all of its fascinating twists and turns, makes a very persuasive case for its ultimate conclusion.  With its exclusive interviews and important new evidence, this book will be an unavoidable touchstone for all future works on the case." --Vincent Bugliosi
 
     "Dan Moldea takes us on a brave and honest journey. . . . He doesn't fail to lead us on a number of fascinating detours, because he knows that only by taking these ambitious side trips can we plumb some of the case's deepest mysteries." --Robert Blair Kaiser
 
     "This book will show up the naysayers in the press who value their prejudices more than Moldea's facts, and set armchair theorists on their ears.  It is exciting, fun, and instructive to watch Moldea solve, finally, this important case--with a Perry Mason shocker to sweeten the ending." --Jonathan Kwitny
 
     "The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy is a classic piece of investigative journalism and a signal contribution to contemporary American political history." --Laurence Leamer
 
     "In a fascinating true-life adventure, Dan Moldea allows us to look over his shoulder as he dissects the investigation, searching for its flaws, weighing the sometimes conflicting evidence, and finally leading us to what appears to be his rock-solid verdict." --David Burnham
 
     "In my view, the essential requirements of good journalism are honesty and integrity, Dan Moldea's book on the murder of Robert Kennedy reflects the best you can get." --Seymour Hersh
 
     "There are various conspiracy theories about RFK's assassination.  I was persuaded by Dan Moldea's The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy that they are bogus."--Evan  Thomas
