Killing the dream

£4.99

Product description

Thirty years after his death on a Memphis motel balcony, Killing the Dream definitively re-examines the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. Based on explosive new interviews, confidential files and previously undisclosed evidence, Gerald Posner's remarkable book not only uncovers the errors of previous investigations but resolves speculation about whether the FBI, CIA or the Mafia was involved in the murder of one of the twentieth century's most luminous icons. From King's rousing 'mountaintop' speech the night before he was killed, to the shock in the courtroom when Ray suddenly pled guilty and the truth seemed lost forever, Posner re-creates the memorable dramas of the case, and produces a fascinating portrait of this career criminal from one of the most forsaken parts of poor, white America. Ray's recent death in prison prompted speculation that he had taken his secrets to the grave, but Killing the Dream ends those fears, laying to rest over three decades of conjecture and distortion about what really happened on that April morning in 1968.


The book remains in clean and good condition. All pages are intact and the cover is intact. Some minor wear to the cover.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
