On April 4, 1968, James Earl Ray shot Martin Luther King, Jr., at
the Lorraine Motel. The nation was shocked, enraged, and saddened. As chaos
erupted across the country and mourners gathered at King’s funeral,
investigators launched a sixty-five-day search for King’s assassin that would
lead them across two continents.
With a blistering, crosscutting narrative that
draws on a wealth of dramatic unpublished documents, Hampton Sides, bestselling
author of Ghost Soldiers, delivers a
nonfiction thriller in the tradition of William Manchester’s The Death of a President and Truman
Capote’s In Cold Blood. With Hellhound on His Trail, Sides shines a
light on the largest manhunt in American history and brings it to life for all
to see. Download and start listening now!
