In 1967, Ray escaped Missouri State Penitentiary and adopted the alias Eric Galt. Drifting about the country and campaigning for raciest presidential candidate George Wallace, Ray observed the rise of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., stalking him until that night at the Lorraine Motel where he assassinated King.

This was a thoroughly engaging book. It made the people and events so real and accessible. It really humanized all of the cardboard cut-outs of history who I've read about since I was a kid. When I first learned it would be read by the author I was hesitant (sometimes that can be a disaster). But this author did an excellent job. Highly recommended by me.
