William Pepper was James Earl Ray’s lawyer in the trial for the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., and even after Ray’s conviction and death, Pepper continues to adamantly argue Ray’s innocence. This myth-shattering expose is a revised, updated, and heavily expanded volume of Pepper’s original best-selling and critically-acclaimed book of the same name, with twenty-six years of additional research included. The result reveals dramatic new details of the night of the murder, the trial, and why Ray was chosen to take the fall for an evil conspiracy—a government-sanctioned assassination of our nation’s greatest leader.

Orders to Kill will release in sync with a feature film adaptation of it that will be directed by Lee Daniels, have Hugh Jackman star as the author, and be produced by Millennium Films. The film will portray Pepper in trial and his proof of an assassination plot masterminded by J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI, the CIA, army intelligence, the mafia, and Memphis police. 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 back-up civilian assassin pulled the trigger.

In Orders to Kill, Pepper shares the evidence and testimonies that prove that Ray was a fall-guy chosen by those who viewed King as a dangerous revolutionary. His findings make the book one of the most important ones of our time—the uncensored story of the murder of an American hero and disturbing revelations about secret under-workings of the government and how it continues, even today, to obscure and obfuscate the truth.

This will be a difficult book for some [many ??] to digest, just as it is difficult for some older folk to grasp how McGeorge Bundy colluded with the assassination of President Kennedy [although far removed from the operational team and aspects] so too it will be difficult for some to understand who was close, and colluded, with the assassination of Rev. King [I have long suspected him given certain circumstantial evidence, no shocker]. Prof. Pepper [Oxford University] is presently working on the assassination of Bobby Kennedy - - I'm certain all three murders, the Kennedy brothers and Rev. King, are closely connected - - and look forward to his work. [I am also fairly certain that when Dr. Pepper mentions a Boston-area academic in the second paragraph on p. 312, he is referring to Prof. Nebulous, a k a, Noam Chomsky, self-described knower of everything, but ignorant of anything specifically helpful!]
