Viscerally dramatic . . . spellbinding . . . Both Martin Luther King and James Earl Ray come to life in these remarkable pages' THE NEW YORK TIMES 'The narrative races along, a deadly road trip heading to a disastrous conclusion . . . has the pace and excitement of a classic thriller' OBSERVER One of them was a thief and con man who'd just broken out of jail. The other was one of the greatest American figures of the twentieth century. This is the sensational story of James Earl Ray and Martin Luther King, and how their lives would fatally intertwine - ending with a gunshot at a Memphis hotel in 1968 and the biggest manhunt in US history. 'An epic of a kind, even a tragedy, in which one small man's hatreds light up a whole nation's terrors . . . racy, gripping . . . brilliantly paced' SCOTSMAN 'A gripping drama of stalking and pursuit . . . it's as though we were eavesdropping on history' NEW STATESMAN 'Though the outcome is clear, we are nonetheless rapt - and then devastated - by Sides' treatment of this historical event' TIME OUT NEW YORK 'Nailbitingly riveting' NEWSDAY
