With a brand new Afterword

On April four, 1968, James Earl Ray shot Martin Luther King on the Lorraine lodge. The country used to be stunned, enraged, and saddened. As chaos erupted around the kingdom and mourners collected at King's funeral, investigators introduced a sixty-five day look for King’s murderer that may lead them throughout continents. With a blistering, cross-cutting narrative that pulls on a wealth of dramatic unpublished files, Hampton facets, bestselling writer of Ghost Soldiers, delivers a non-fiction mystery within the culture of William Manchester's The loss of life of a President and Truman Capote's In chilly Blood. With Hellhound On His Trail, Sides shines a mild at the biggest manhunt in American background and brings it to existence for all to see.
