Preview of the cover of my new book, A Lie Too Big to Fail!

As many of you know, I've been researching the assassinations of the 1960s for more than 25 years now. I've had a particular interest in the assassination of Robert Kennedy. I started and stopped this book a couple of times over the last ten years, but got really serious about writing it over the last three and a half. Here is a preview of the cover. Jim DiEugenio was kind enough to write a wonderful introduction as well.

I can't wait to talk about what's in the book. But I'm sitting on mega secrets for now. Can't wait to knock your socks off though! The book will be out in September and should show up in and other outlets in April.

Congratulations on this tremendous achievement, Lisa Pease! I'm very eager to read the book, though I know it will stir up sorrow and anger. You're a national treasure.

I'm really looking forward to this book. You might not be able to reveal this yet, but is it going to delve further into William Joseph Bryan, the probable hypno-programmer of Sirhan? Last year, I read Dave McGowan's book _Programmed to Kill_, which covers (among other things) how Albert DeSalvo was likely framed for the Boston Strangler murders with the help of Dr. Bryan to feed him the "confessions". You also brought this up briefly in your Rubik's Cube article. And of course, Sirhan oddly made reference to DeSalvo. That connection between the RFK case and the world of serial killers always fascinated me.

I've wondered about the connection between that Southern Calif. preacher (was it McIntire?) who's secretary was the brother of Arthur Bremmer, accused attempted assassin of George Wallace. Was it just coincidence?

Thank you so much, Jamey. Very kind. Thanks, FB and George K as well. George - in short, yes. ;-) I have some new information that should be of interest and more depth on some of the info already out there. But there is so much more to the story!!

I’m just beginning reading your new book but I begin as a long time reader of 1960’s Assassination books. I simply can’t thank you enough for your efforts, over time, and I personally congratulate you for joining the small but passionate group of grand researchers who have sacrificed so much to arrive at the truth. You are indeed heroic...

I’m looking forward to a discussion soon...

Dewayne A Wolfer was the instructor of a criminalistics class I took while completing requirements for a BS in Criminal Justice at Cal State University in 1973-1974.

During the course of the semester, Wolfer was questioned by a student about his role in the RFK investigation, and the "two gun theory".

His reaction was interesting. He stated that the evidence presented to the Grand Jury and during the trial phase did not support the existence of a second gun, but if he was being asked for his opinion, a second gun could have been involved.

This was a few years after he retired from LAPD, so his pension wasn't at risk.

There was no doubt that Sirhan was involved, but doubt exists if he acted alone.

The bigger question was who had the power and authority to shut down the investigation and manipulate the evidence.

There you will find the sponsor.

Personally, I don't want to know.

Remember it well! Rosevelt Grier, on his television show that weekend, tried to sing Spanish Harlem. But was so overcome with grief, he walked off the stage mid-song. Some were speculation whether RFK would survive the shooting 'as a vegetable' or not. Dan Smoot, in his report, did a rather thought-provoking analysis of the 1968 race called We Do Have A Choice and his main focus was RFK and Gov. Wallace. Regarding the assassination directly, one of my relatives was a cab driver. He got two fares that night. The man insisted that he not turn on the radio. Drove them to a private or remote field where they boarded a plane. The woman, he said wore a red Poca dot dress. The man was so pleased that when he offered to pay, he went into the case in the trunk and it was loaded with money! Only after they took off and he listened to the radio did he hear about the assassination. RFK was a bright light! Authentic and the wound is still unhealed, in my opinion.

I have been following the JFK case since about 1980.
I have a lot more JFK books then I do RFK books. I have maybe six or seven RFK books.
I bought your book thru Amazon Kindle and am reading it now. Have previously read books by
Robert Houghton, Bill Turner and Jon Christian, Shane O'Sullivan, and maybe three others.
You have a very good understanding of the case and the evidence and its shortcomings. I am
very impressed. I am only about 40% of the way thru the book, and can hardly tear myself
away from it. I have a theory about who the girl in the Polka Dot dress was, but will save it for another time. Maybe I will find who she was in your book?"

Lisa, The organization known as the Innocence Project has had much success over the years in freeing persons who have wrongfully been convicted of crimes they didn't commit. Your book has considerable evidence showing that Sirhan Sirhan was not the assassin of RFK. While many JFK/RFK researchers are ignored as "conspiracy theorists", the Innocence Project is well regarded as a reputable public interest organization. Perhaps the Innocence Project of California would be interested in pursuing Sirhan Sirhan's case? I suggest it would be worth contacting them to explore this possibility. If they would be willing to get involved, they could be a great ally.
Best wishes,
Dennis Bartholomew
