James Earl Ray’s lawyer makes his case against MLK’s actual killers in this expanded edition of Orders to Kill featuring 26 years of additional research.
William Pepper was James Earl Ray’s lawyer in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr. Even after Ray’s conviction and death, Pepper adamantly argued that Ray was a scapegoat for a government-backed assassination conspiracy—a case he detailed in his 1995 book, Orders to Kill. In 1999, as a lawyer for the King family, Pepper won a wrongful death lawsuit against Lloyd Jowers, a confessed con-conspirator.
Now Pepper presents the definitive, myth-shattering account in this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of Orders to Kill. He reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for a government-sanctioned assassination of a national hero. The plan, according to Pepper, was for a team of United States Army Special Forces snipers to kill King, but just as they were taking aim, a backup civilian assassin pulled the trigger.
