Negative star rated.

Most bizarre book I've ever read. The author covers and skims over a multitude of mysteries, unanswered questions, discrepancies, etc., and then at the end of the book, conveniently neglects them all when presenting his conclusion.

Police work? A complete absence, and then they destroy the evidence?

Unidentified FBI are on the scene before arrival of police -- never ID'd?

Witnesses describe a 6'2" man in suite, a petite blonde and another man "racing" out the back entrace through the kitchen, never ID'd -- although a blonde woman calls police and self-identifies, but police never ID her with witnesses? (Blonde woman has cast on one foot -- said she had it on night of assassination --- yet no one saw her limping, only "racing" out door?)

Forensic evidence just doesn't match --- a 6'2" shooter would fall into the range, but a 5'2" Sirhan would have to be standing on a chair for a match --- and witnesses testified that Sirhan was blitzed a good while prior to shooting?

The extraordinary campaign waged against Dr. Noguchi, the medical examiner, while touched upon, is never investigated.

Sixty-four false charges were brought against Dr. Noguchi and he was fired. He fought back, and every single false charge was dropped, and Noguchi was reinstated to his position.

Turned out, the "informer" (plant?) who had secretly passed on those charges was a recent hire, who was supposed to have been a licensed physician (NOT!!) but turned out to have a completely fraudulent background.

Mystery guy was fired --- with no followup whatsoever --- he deserved his very own investigative task force?????

This reporter is a complete phony??? As was this book.

The chapter entitled, "Intersection", is gripping.
