For nearly forty years, the conviction of James Earl Ray for the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. has been the subject of intense inquiry and debate by historians and researchers. Was Ray, a small-town petty thief, really the criminal mastermind and lone gunman prosecutors said he was? Or was he a pawn in a broader conspiracy that involved the U.S. government? His case never went to trial, and many, including the King family, concluded that there had been a conspiracy. A government investigation in 2000 concluded that there was no evidence to suggest it. In Truth at Last, Rays eldest brother, John Larry Ray, and MLK historian Lyndon Barsten offer incontrovertible evidence that James Earl Ray could not have acted alone. Barsten draws on scores of personal interviews and more than 4,000 Freedom of Information Act requests, including Rays Army personnel file. John Larry Ray adds family background and never-before- seen photos. Together, they offer a startling new look at Rays life, his encounters with the Feds and the Mob, and the crime that shook the world.
