Where were you when RFK was killed? That is the simple question. James Musgrave moves to the more difficult why, when, how, and who done it. The Sins of Darkness mixes fiction, historical research, and psychological thrills for a near perfect combination. The fun for the reader is picking out what is fact and what is fiction. Was it a conspiracy involving mind control. Was the assasin brain washed by a top-secret group to become a super, heartless killer? The fun is finding out the truth! The fun is finding out the fiction! The fun is finding out it all.
This was a page turner in parts and other parts not so much. I'm not that big of a conspiracy theory fan, but I did enjoy the vast majority of this book. On a side note, I was surprised to find that it is still painful to read details of Bobby's assassination after all these years, even in a work of fiction.
Today, the attorney for Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, who was up on appeal for the murder of Rober F. Kennedy, called the author, of Sins of Darkness, to see if the information about Sirhan being "hypno-programmed" was true.
The author told him the sources he used for his novel, and the fact he could not verify it as factual. It was, after all, a thriller novel.
