“This fast paced narrative tells the story of Eric Galt, prisoner #416J, otherwise known as James Earl Ray, the assassin of Martin Luther King, Jr. A non-descript, forgettable man obsessed with becoming someone, Ray weasels in and out of society with ease, taking down the most memorable man of the civil rights movement in his path. As the most intense manhunt ever carried out by the FBI is underway, Ray continues to blend and scurry for cover, leaving a trail throughout the United States, Canada and England. Fascinating, full of descriptive detail, this is a sad portrayal of the mighty taken down by the meek.”
