Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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.

Last 12 minutes messed up

Well researched. I’ve studied the CIA assassinations for 60 years and learned new things from this book. The last 12 minutes, as the author brings it all together, was haunted by drop outs and recordings from a different book by a male voice. Very disturbing.

Dumbest book I’ve ever read

This book is preposterous. It’s like fairy tale written by a High School junior. I’m shocked any publisher would print. Careless,frivolous,and stupid.

Convincing, Thorough, Logical Account of RFK death

This book is well worth listening to and/or reading as Lisa Pease adroitly lays out the case of RFK's assassination. The narrative is sectioned off so relativity to overall context is never far away. She has thoroughly poured through tonnes of materials to present salient facts on the case as well as the very clearly evident cover up of the case by the LAPD, FBI, CIA and even Sirhan's defense team. What's more, she continues to detail the cover up that thwarted any prospect of honest and independent investigations in the '70's. Sirhan Sirhan didn't kill RFK - RFK Jr has even come to this conclusion. Lisa Pease sensibly and logically proves Sirhan was not the killer. Without giving anything away about this important book, the biggest smoking gun in this case is the far reaching cover up by the authorities to pin the blame on one person despite the overwhelming evidence and proof other shooters and conspirators were involved. If you're interested in any of the assassinations that changed the course of modern history in the 1960's - you must read/listen to this book!
