In A Lie Too Big to Fail, longtime Kennedy researcher (of both JFK and RFK) Lisa Pease lays out, in meticulous detail, how witnesses with evidence of conspiracy were silenced by the Los Angeles Police Department; how evidence was deliberately altered and, in some instances, destroyed; and how the justice system and the media failed to present the truth of the case to the public. Pease reveals how the trial was essentially a sham, and how the prosecution did not dare to follow where the evidence led.
A Lie Too Big to Fail asserts the idea that a government can never investigate itself in a crime of this magnitude. Was the convicted Sirhan Sirhan a willing participant? Or was he a mind-controlled assassin? It has fallen to independent researchers like Pease to lay out the evidence in a clear and concise manner, allowing readers to form their theories about this event. Pease places the history of this event in the context of the era and provides shocking overlaps between other high-profile murders and attempted murders of the time. Lisa Pease goes further than anyone else in proving who likely planned the assassination, who the assassination team members were, and why Kennedy was deemed such a threat that he had to be taken out before he became President of the United States.
A Lie Too Big to Fail is history re-examined. Lisa Pease has offered up not just your garden-variety conspiracy theory but a well researched and annotated historical mystery. Pease outlines the facts as offered and puts forth the challenges to the documented case. Pease believes in the alternative narrative, but her journey there is thorough and makes a compelling argument. Grade A journalism! (Danielle McManus Manhattan Book Review)
Victims, witnesses and readers have long known that the murder of Robert F. Kennedy was not committed by a single shooter, firing from in front. Lisa Pease has now marshaled the evidence, showing how it was done. This book completes the work of Allard Lowenstein and many others, and is a powerful brief for the parole of Sirhan Sirhan, in prison for over 50 years on false charges. —James K.
