Lisa Pease, A Lie Too Big to Fail: The Real History of the Robert Kennedy Assassination

Written by Michael Le Flem
The author’s narrative gifts are as pronounced as her investigative acumen. And with this book as her lifetime achievement on a case that still remains relatively obscure in light of the JFK assassination, she will likely establish herself as the preeminent authority on the subject for years to come, avers Michael Le Flem.

John R. Bohrer, The Revolution of Robert Kennedy

Written by James DiEugenio
The best volume on Robert Kennedy I have read since Arthur Schlesinger’s two volume set in 1978. If you want to know about Bobby Kennedy’s life, the Schlesinger book is your choice. But if you want to know who RFK was in his last years, this is the book to read. No politician I know of ever did or said these kinds of things at home and abroad, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Larry Tye, Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon

Written by James DiEugenio
Because of its innumerable textual and sourcing problems, Tye's book is neither worth reading nor buying, concludes Jim DiEugenio, who is prompted to muse:  "Why did the author write the book? Only he can answer that question".

Fernando Faura, The Polka Dot File on the Robert F. Kennedy Killing

Written by James DiEugenio
With this book, we finally have a record of one of the very, very few mainstream reporters who actually delved into one of the assassinations of the sixties. Who tried to do an honest job and who actually tried to follow the evidence wherever it was headed, writes Jim DiEugenio.

David C. Heymann, Bobby and Jackie: A Love Story

Written by Lisa Pease
While I dislike intensely what [Heymann has] written, I can imagine the situation from his point of view. In his mind, he's a crafty guy who figured out a way to make a great living, while breaking, to my knowledge, no enforceable laws to do so. That he broke all laws of decency and historical faithfulness, if you put yourself in his shoes, is beside the point, writes Lisa Pease.

Robert Joling, J.D. & Philip Van Praag, An Open and Shut Case

Written by Lisa Pease
The book is certainly easy to read, and clearly presented. So long as you understand that some of the material is incorrect ... and outdated ..., there is still much to recommend here, writes Lisa Pease.

Robert Blair Kaiser, RFK Must Die (reissue)

Written by James DiEugenio
For anyone interested in the RFK case, try and get the original version of this book. That version is still a valuable work, one worth having and reading, concludes Jim DiEugenio.

William Turner & Jonn Christian, The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy (reissue)

Written by James DiEugenio

David Talbot, Brothers

Written by James DiEugenio
Despite its up and downs, overall this is a worthwhile and unique book. Its most important aspect, of course, is the proof of Robert Kennedy's secret quest for the truth about Dallas. That is an important contribution with which to rebut the opposition's argument of: "Well, why didn't Bobby do anything?" We can finally dispose of that question in a truthful and forceful way, writes Jim DiEugenio.
