  • "Acclaimed author Hampton Sides charts James Earl Ray's mission to assassinate Martin Luther King, Jr. and the funeral, 65-day manhunt, and nationwide riots that followed. In 1967, Ray escaped Missouri State Penitentiary and adopted the alias Eric Galt. Drifting about the country and campaigning for racist 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 when he assassinated King."
  • ""The stalking of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the international hunt for his assassin". In April, 1967, a nondescript thief and conman escaped from the Missouri State Penitentiary and drifted to Los Angeles where he was galvinized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. The gripping events that led this man to kill Reverend King and the 65-day search that followed."@en

  • "On April 23, 1967, Prisoner #416J, an inmate at the notorious Missouri State Penitentiary, escaped in a breadbox. Fashioning himself Eric Galt, this nondescript thief and con man--whose real name was James Earl Ray--drifted through the South, into Mexico, and then Los Angeles, where he was galvanized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. On February 1, 1968, two Memphis garbage men were crushed to death in their hydraulic truck, provoking the exclusively African American workforce to go on strike. Hoping to resuscitate his faltering crusade, King joined the sanitation workers' cause, but their march down Beale Street, the historic avenue of the blues, turned violent. Humiliated, King fatefully vowed to return to Memphis in April. With relentless storytelling drive, Sides follows Galt and King as they crisscross the country, one stalking the other, until the crushing moment at the Lorraine Motel when the drifter catches up with his prey. Against the backdrop of the resulting nationwide riots and the pathos of King's funeral, Sides gives us a riveting cross-cut narrative of the assassin's flight and the sixty-five-day search that led investigators to Canada, Portugal, and England--a massive manhunt ironically led by Hoover's FBI."@en
