Hellhound on His Trail by Hampton Sides

In Hellhound on His Trail, Hampton Sides tells three stories: Martin Luther King in the last few months of life struggling with self-doubt and harassed by the FBI; James Earl Ray, an escaped racist prisoner living a life of sleaze and minor crime under the name Eric Galt and stalking King; the sixty-five-day international manhunt to find and capture King's assassin. King and Ray were strikingly different men, one educated, erudite, and charmismatic, the other a loner, a petty criminal, and man who left no impression on those who met him. The intersection of their lives changed history. Hellhound on His Trail has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "Mr. Sides was a 6-year-old in Memphis when Dr. King was shot. His main objective in this bold, dynamic, unusually vivid book is to bring an adult's perspective to events that he could neither fathom nor forget."
