Editorial Reviews

Review

“Mel Ayton has accomplished something that no one writing about the RFK assassination has ever achieved before. By combining a judicious review of the forensic and eyewitness evidence with a firm grasp of the historical context, Ayton has finally made sense of the 1968 killing. The Forgotten Terrorist is a long overdue reminder that assassination is political murder.”—Max Holland, writer for The Nation and author of The Kennedy Assassination Tapes
(Max Holland)

"Ayton has produced a significant book with original and detailed information and analyses regarding Sirhan's life, motivation and psychology, we well as the crime itself, which includes new forensic evidence published in three appendices. . . .After reading this compelling comprehensive work, the truth about this case seems obvious."—Patricia Lambert, History News Network
(Patricia Lambert History News Network 2007-07-12)

"Mel Ayton presents a compelling examination of the convicted assassin’s motivations, his state of mind, and the mountain of evidence used to denounce and imprison him. Students will find this an intriguing story to read, and in an advanced level of seminar devoted to analyzing the use of evidence, very instructive"—History Teacher
(History Teacher 2009-04-09)

“I am a recognized expert on the murder of Senator Kennedy, but I learned a great deal from The Forgotten Terrorist, especially about Sirhan’s family background and his ‘Palestinian nationalism.’ The exquisite detail contained in this well-written, wonderfully researched work makes it a must-read for anyone studying this far from open-and-shut case."—Dan E. Moldea, author of The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy: An Investigation of Motive, Means, and Opportunity
(Dan E. Moldea)

The Forgotten Terrorist is superlative, especially in regards to Sirhan’s political obsessions and background. The greatest riddle in any of these high profile assassinations is motive. Thanks to Mel Ayton, the RFK killing can now be removed from that list of mysteries. I now recommend this book as the first and last book to read on the case.”—Gus Russo, author of The Outfit and Supermob
