This updated edition for the 50th anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy's murder explores ignored witness accounts, coerced testimony, bullet-hole evidence, and other issues surrounding the political homicide. On June 4, 1968, just after he had declared victory in the California presidential primary, Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel. Captured a few feet away, gun in hand, was a young Palestinian-American named Sirhan Sirhan. The case against Sirhan was declared "open and shut" and the court proceedings against him were billed as "the trial of the century"; American justice at its fairest and most sure. But was it? By careful examination of the police files, hidden for twenty years, Shadow Play explores the chilling significance of altered evidence, ignored witnesses, and coerced testimony. It challenges the official assumptions and conclusions about this most troubling, and perhaps still unsolved, political murder.
